ART IS IN THE AIR!  Engage the senses, entice the muse, immortalize the ordinary!

Learn to design and compose your painting subjects, using only the strongest elements by eliminating the insignificant or superfluous to make your own powerful, personal artistic statement.  Understand and use color and value relationships to create drama and light in whatever you choose to paint.  Work from your own photos and sketches or use some of the available studio photos.  Whether you are just beginning to explore your creativity; looking to create a new piece for your home or exhibition; wanting to create a special gift for someone or to just have great fun – you will learn much and have a great time doing so!

Work in watercolor, oil or acrylic and feel free to experiment with a different medium than the one you start with, if you choose.

Beginners as well as experienced artists welcome!
