I approach art instruction and teaching painting with each student individually, so they can paint freely, at their own level, and paint a subject fitting their skills and needs. I talk with each new student before they receive art instruction to get a feel for what they would like to accomplish. This enables me to help guide towards their own unique creative strategies. For each session I do give an optional assignment or challenge for those students who want more direction and/or to discover a new technique. Often the class works on diverse paintings with a few participating in the assignment/challenge. My classes are sprinkled with beginners, intermediates, and beyond students. Each class contains a relaxed, supportive, and encouraging atmosphere enabling you to find your own distinctive pathway to oil painting.
