Upcoming Classes

A student painting a canvas


Students learn a specific process of acrylic painting as they work on the same piece over the course of 6 weeks, from a blank canvas to completion. They also participate in collaborative paintings during the class cycle, too. Along the way, instructors will introduce aspects of color theory, perspective, and various approaches to paint application, always mindful of each student’s capabilities.

At the end of the course, the paintings will be presented in a group show for friends and family.

All materials are provided.

Movement and Quiet

Students learn basic yoga asanas (poses) and breath work techniques designed to help them develop flexibility, strength, and balance. Each class is customized to address the needs of the students, and modified poses (e.g., chair yoga) are also taught for those who require alternatives.

Yoga mats and supplies are provided, but students are welcome to bring their own mat if they prefer. Students may come in their regular clothes or wear clothing that has room to stretch.

Dangerous Machines

Dangerous Machines (And Other Individual Abstract Paintings)

When the viewer spends time with any of the paintings in this collection, it can be like looking at the clouds; images start to appear and everyone’s experience is different. The images that the viewer invents in his or her mind, is most likely unintended by the artist.

Winter Sun

Winter Sun (A Collection of Landscape Paintings)

For many of our students, the landscape is already there in the painting while it is still in its abstract form, waiting to be discovered. For others, the student has a preconceived image of what he or she would like to paint right from the beginning.

The Orange and Yellow Woods

The Orange and Yellow Woods (A Collection of Individual Student Work)

Some of the paintings in this collection are pure abstract, with bright, unrestrained colors, scrape lines, and heavy textures. Other paintings in this collection are more representational—depicting scenes from nature.
