Painting Classes – Okanagan, BC – Oct/Nov 2015

Two different classes are available. Now taking registrations.

1) Receive personal instruction as you paint your choice of subject matter. This class is a relaxed environment that allows you to learn at your own pace.

2) A more indepth class where you will learn how to paint what what you really see, not what you think you see, by learning to observe with a keen sensitivity through weekly exercises of painting from life, as well as demonstrations, critiques and homework. This class is designed to challenge you and provide you with the tools of observation to be able to paint any subject matter.
