painters at easels in painting class outside in the sun

I teach an ONGOING PAINTING CLASS at my studio in Petaluma, focusing on figurative abstraction and observational painting from life.
All levels are welcome. The class includes time for instruction, painting, and critique in a very supportive environment.
I encourage students to develop bodies of work and follow their own vision. Email me if you are interested in joining us.

$120. per month ongoing Wednesday in person class
$35. drop in per class.   Wednesdays 9:30 am-12:30 pm                                         (NOTE: Due to Corona restrictions, we are meeting Monday and Friday via Zoom, along with a private Facebook group for sharing work, and have just started venturing outside for plein air at nearby locales.)

One on one sessions are available for painting, critique of paintings, or goal setting.  $55/hour.


I teach graduate level Clothed Figure Drawing at The San Francisco Academy of Art University .

Coming soon: Online workshops in figure drawing and painting
