Beginning
If you’re totally new to painting or took a class or two sometime in your life, you’ll learn the basics: composition, building a painting, color theory (mixing and relationships) and the specifics of the medium (i.e., acrylic, oil, watercolor).

Intermediate – Advanced

These classes are for those looking to refine their technique or learn a particular technique.

All Levels
An “All Levels” class is for beginning through advanced level students. Our faculty work with you individually.

*Please note: Supplies are not included in adult classes and workshops. Please email the
instructor for additional information regarding supplies. The cost of supplies will vary by
class and medium.
