Authentic abstract paintings are much more than random splattering and smearing of paint on the canvas. 

Class starts Thursday June 1st - 2 to 5pm

Artists have worked from the live model from the beginning of time. And they have for good reason. It is the best way to hone all of your creative and artistic skills.

Class starts Monday June 5th - 6 to 9pm

I have recently opened an Etsy shop. 
Check it out. 
New work posted there all the time.

Coming Fall 2017
"Figures of Venus" Workshop

Come learn to draw the figure by looking at the poses of Venus as created by famous artists throughtout history such as Titian, Botticelli, Rubens, Corot and many more.

Venus is the goddess of love and beauty. We will have our very own Venus, (the always lovely Amanda) in the studio to recreate the poses that made her so popular. 

We will be focusing on drawing the figure and observing how her form fits into the composition and learn why this mythical being has captivated us for centuries.
