Students will find the on-going, year round class schedule very convenient and appealing to their busy life-styles. Each student works at his/her own pace in a creative and pleasant atmosphere.

Aspiring artists of every skill level are invited to join our classes. The classes are designed to help the beginning as well as the advanced student achieve their artistic goals. 


The students will learn the tools and materials of oil painting. New students will be painting a new painting at the first session. You will copy master paintings as a pathway to creating your own style of painting. For the continuing students, this semester you will be given a Michelangelo painting to replicate.
