Our classically trained faculty teaches painting techniques and compositions, placing emphases on developing foundational skills and on pursuing a personal approach to painting from still life and from photographic references. Students receive individualized instruction and are encouraged to work at their own pace. In-class demonstrations will be shown using oil paints, but students may use the painting medium of their choice. Students furnish their own supplies and may bring what they typically use to class. For an idea of what supplies might be useful, see Suggested Materials List below.
