Teaching is a way to share my love of art. Over the years I have noticed that even advanced artists lack many foundational skills that would take their work to new levels. I teach those skills in my classes and encourage students to explore, to reach beyond what they think is possible with their art and help them discover their own unique style.
I teach primarily realism but the skills that I teach are applicable to any style and any subject matter students wish to improve.
Learn to Paint with Oils: Beginners to Advanced
Any Subject Matter
Anyone can learn to paint! Learn the foundational elements of oil painting by starting with simple subject matter and moving on to more complex subjects over time. Each class will build upon previous lessons.
Intermediate and Advanced
Advanced artists often lack some of the foundational skills that would take their work to new levels. Learn to mix rich colour and create compelling compositions. Discover how edges, temperature and paint quality make your paintings come alive with colour, energy and atmosphere. These skills are applicable to any style or subject.
