If you haven't had any experience with watercolor, try Watercolor Basics for the Absolute Beginner (SA 16) with Bill Paarlberg. This February 15th morning session will allow you to splash around, beginning with how to use a brush to grab water, how to use your pallet, how to mix paint, and how to use your brush to make basic marks and washes. This basic class will give you the confidence necessary to continue learning and painting.



Bill Paarlberg wants you to paint fresher and looser as he demos in watercolor, pen and ink, and pencil in his Your Sketchbook- The Key To Wonder (SA 10). learn how to think and work faster, how to use thumbnails and value studies and how to progress more quickly in our skills and artwork as we explore new media and techniques.




Figure Painting

Figure Painting (SA 7) with Alastair Dacey will teach you a direct method of painting and sketching in oil, working to relate values and colors and finding useful anatomical cues and visual effects to help place your figure on the canvas. Alastair will show you how to simplify the figure into the most important shapes, angles and light effects, giving you a working method for approaching the complex beauties of the human form.

Working With/From a Master
As Picasso so famously said, “Good artists borrow, great artists steal!” Working With/From a Master (SA 4) with Tom Glover encourages you to steal colors, brushstrokes and ideas, diving into a body of work that has influenced you and working in the artistic medium of your role model's choice.

We have 20 classes and workshops to choose from, all taught by artists who are teaching their passion. Come and discover your own. 

 We Love Winter Classes!!!

    Bring cheery color into your Winter environment. Here are some recommendations for a color fix:
Painting the Still Life in Oil (SA 8) will have you working to create vibrant paintings from life. Sydney Bella Sparrow is one of the best color mixing instructors I have found and is an excellent guide to help you understand hue, value and chroma as it relates to the still life. Sydney also offers Drawing the Figure (SA 9) with the focus on creating figure drawings that demonstrate both anatomical accuracy and sensitivity to line work and composition.

Let go of your inner critic and enjoy a colorful, meditative time with Sean Kramer as your spiritual and artistic guide in his wonderful Contemplative Art Practices (SA 5) class. Mandalas, yantras, spontaneous and intuitive art practices, working with symbols, mandalas, yantras, surrealist techniques, and more to stir your creativity.




Carol Morley offers Botanical Drawing (SA 11) where, through guided instruction, you will learn about color mixing with colored pencils and taking your inspirations from nature, capture the diverse and intriguing shapes of the plant world. Or you may take her 5 hour Saturday class in Colored Pencil Techniques (SA 14). Color is the essence of this class as you explore how colors can harmonize together or create great contrast, recede into the background or appear to advance in space.

Watercolorist Russel Whitten teaches you how to work colorfully in Watercolor (SA 6). This beautiful, translucent water medium is a great painting material to challenge yourself with, and Russel is an excellent guide to understanding its properties and techniques.
