Welcome to class where we explore the fundamentals of painting through the direct observation of still lifes or plein air, as weather permits.  Join us and improve your skill, perception and knowledge of the cornerstones: drawing, color, value and design.  

Watch your paintings improve as you enjoy the benefits of painting in a group and critiques in every class..
