Art Nights are weekly gatherings on Wednesdays  in my home/studio for all levels of artist, and for all media. No registration is required, however, we do ask that you let us know if you are coming. Art nights are intended to be casual, you may drop in whenever you are available, or you may make this a weekly workshop. Bring your paints, easels and materials and come to create, discuss and enjoy art!

Guided activities will vary from week to week, but will include:


Discussions on: Purpose, Importance, Inspiration of Art – Materials , Methods and Techniques – Principles and Elements of Design – Inspiration from Creative Master’s

Importance of Composition Thumbnails

Outdoor Painting – Studio Painting

Preparing Portfolio, Biography for Show Submittals

Critiques of Your Work

Track the progress of my studio works

In late spring and summer classes will branch outside to paint my pond and flowers

Skill development comes from a routine of frequency, repetition, observation (seeing and sharing ideas) and setting goals for achievement. I hope that you might join me and that I might be able to share with you some of my knowledge and passion of art, and that Art Nights will provide opportunities to further develop your creative talents.
