Online Group Class for Any Level

 ​Let’s dig deeply into the artistic process, what questions can we ask to guide our growth and ability to express our unique and individual selves?   How can we incorporate more risk-taking, more experimentation in our work?

Can we as a group of artists, elevate our skills, and increase our connection to our artistic soul? Can we encourage each other in our explorations?  Can we discover and share what is happening in the world of art and why? 


The experience will be enjoyable and fun. You will feel nurtured and supported as you grow.  There will be weekly prompts, guided lessons on technique, exercises, and reflections.

Whether your goal is to improve in drawing, portraiture, composition, watercolor, oil or acrylic,  The experience will be enjoyable and fun. You will feel nurtured and supported as you grow in your ability to visually express your innermost world.

First Meeting:

During our one hour first meeting, I will review your current work with fair, honest, and constructive feedback about where you are and where you want to go with your artistic development. Commitment, goal setting, visioning, and learning gaps will be assessed and addressed as will your specific desired learning outcomes

Personalized Curriculum:

You will receive a personal study curriculum with individualized assignments that combine observational skills with personal concepts to create a theme and a range of work that addresses exactly what it is you want to accomplish.  I will mentor you and provide a system that, over time, expands your capability and understanding of the techniques and art concepts you need to produce artwork you love. 

Class Format:

Everyone in our group class will be working on something different which may include different media, different subject matter, different goals, and different skill levels. Each week we will begin class with feedback on work accomplished and you will have the opportunity to articulate your intentions, success, and failures. 


You will benefit from the collegial group atmosphere and peer input on your artwork and ideas..  The second half of the class will be devoted to supervised art creation with instant feedback and guidance.


My Commitment:

All corrections will be given with the end goal of encouraging you to engage more deeply with the work.  I will be available for guidance online weekly and during Friday Open Studio. 

As your teacher, I am committed to nurturing your development, to offering positive, supportive guidance while challenging your perceptions and beliefs.  I will encourage you to take risks and allow me to help you find your way through and over the obstacles you encounter.  I will recommend specific art courses and competitions at local clubs, guilds, and institutions to further enhance your growth and make the best use of your time.
