Calling all arteests! Join us in person or virtually as we dive into this year's art theme, "Art in Nature!" We will be studying several of the artists famous for their celebration of nature. Our fine art projects will include:

Each session, we will experiment with a new medium or mixture of mediums while focusing on the styles of different artists like Monet, Rousseau, Audubon, Goldsworthy, and more!

For students attending in-person, the art studio is located in the San Francisco Bay Area in Concord, California, and anyone is welcome! I have students from Brentwood, Antioch, Lafayette, Martinez, and more! Plus, virtual classes via Zoom make it possible to attend from anywhere! I set up two cameras for each lesson, one pointed at me and the other towards whatever my project is so students can see exactly how to execute the techniques and follow along.
My help and guidance during class is always available!


Virtual Students: it is VERY important to use the best ART MATERIALS you can afford to learn proper technique and enjoy the experience. I have created Amazon wishlists of my favorite, most affordable materials. It is very challenging to teach virtual classes with students who have the wrong supplies, so please follow the lists as much as possible. Many of the supplies will be used for multiple sessions. Find the links below!

Sign up for a session below! Each session includes 4 one-hour classes and occurs on 4 consecutive Tuesdays or Wednesdays from 11am - 12pm or 12:30pm - 1:30pm*
*No class the week of Nov 22-26 for Thanksgiving Break & April 18-22 for Easter Break
