Welcome to Thepaintingclass.com! Whether one is a novice or already an
accomplished artist, all are welcome here. The paintingclass.com is a place
for practicing painters and those who have only dreamed of painting. I
strive to create a pleasing environment where all are comfortable to create
at his own pace and level.
At thepaintingclass.com, each painter is free to find his own style and to
explore all of the painting materials. This is a place of oils, acrylics,
watercolours, inks, pastels, graphites, colored pencils and even
encaustics. While many of the classes concentrate on the basics, workshops
and classes encompass all the mediums.
I believe that drawing and painting are two different skills. But drawing is
the underpin of painting. Therefore, we practice drawing at the beginning of
each class. We also discuss materials, inspiration and painting news before
we settle down to work. The classes are 3 hours in duration. This allows for
a good, long painting session for each student as well as collaborative
consultations and individualized instructions.
While each student provides his own supplies, I suggest no purchases until
after one or two classes. I provide the basics in all mediums for early
explorations. Finding one’s medium and developing one’s skills is very
exciting and joyful journey. At paintingclass.com, we happily embark on this
journey. I hope you will join me on Wednesday afternoons or Thursday
evenings to find the artist in your soul. I know it is in there.
