Online Classes


The online class offers something different from the in-person class and workshop. While I won't be able to reach over your shoulder and touch your painting, you can participate as your schedule allows, access content that might otherwise be inaccessible due to cost, time, and distance, and be part of a community of other artists.

Classes are a combination of live broadcasts through Zoom, suggested assignments, online discussion, critiques, and limited private correspondance. The live broadcasts are the magic and meat of these classes. They include slide presentations, demonstrations, and question and answer sessions. Each broadcast is recorded so that students can review the material at their leisure (or if they couldn't attend the live broadcast). Online discussion is optional and will take place in private facebook groups.

If you'd like to participate in a group critique, that is available in addition to the class. Enrollment in the group critique is limited.

Perception & Inspiration 2

Tuesdays, 11 am PST
April 30 - June 4, 2019

$180 class
-or-
$240 class with group critique

Perception and inspiration, how we see and why we make something, are perhaps the most fundamental elements of painting. In the first class in this series, we focused on mark making, soft and hard transitions, process, and inspiration. In this second class, over five sessions spanning six weeks, we will continue our examination and play with these aspects of painting, and dive deeper into value, explore composition, and start talking more directly about color. We will look at a wide range of artwork. We will draw, paint, make a mess, discuss, and critique. The aim, always, is to make stronger and more personal work.

You do not have to have taken the first class. However, it can be helpful to review previously covered material. If you’d like to watch the videos from the previous session (edited to remove student work), they will be available shortly for $80.

Each broadcast runs, as needed, from 60 to 90 minutes long. If you'd like more specific critiques of work (whether it be from the class or not), you can sign up for a group critique in conjunction with this class. The group critique is three sessions every other week starting the second week of the class. The group critique is $60 for class participants.

This is a class for those with some painting experience. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to send us an email at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).
