Art Classes, MasterClasses and Workshops
“TEACHING YOUR MIND TO SEE”
Introductory Drawing Classes
2 Special Introductory Classes ($97)
These two classes can be taken during ongoing morning or evening classes. Please call for the details. You will create a baseline drawing so the instructor can see your current level and will be introduced to the 10 quintessential concepts on “learning to see”. After completing these two classes you will be ready for any direction you want to develop: drawing, painting, portraiture, abstract art, mixed media, and join live drawing classes (Saturdays).
SUNDAY 10am - 1:00pm
Absolute Beginner through Advanced
(Prerequisite required: “Learn to Paint in One Day” workshop)
MasterClasses are the next step after “Learn to Paint in One Day” workshop (L2P). After L2P has activated your creative potential, your pace of absorbing new information is like that of a young child. The typical resistance to unfamiliar activities is lifted and now you approach any new subject with curiosity and ease.
MasterClasses are based on utilizing this enormous inborn capacity of the “right brain”. There is no specific sequence, you can start with any 3-hour MasterClass. In MasterClass, teacher demonstrates a technique and you effortlessly create an artwork from start to completion - even if you have never had any other painting experience than in “Learn to Paint in One Day”. MasterClasses are designed to help you develop your talent and become proficient in less than a year. You begin to acquire drawing and painting skills unusually quickly, and after taking a variety of MasterClasses you will be an independent artist.
Materials: don’t bring any supplies, everything is provided; please have your photo camera ready to record your progress (and possibly post your work on Social Media).

Even artists with experience come to L2P training to unlock their talent.

Painting on Unusual Surfaces
Level: Beginner to Advanced
Prerequisite: 2 Special Introductory Drawing Classes
In this project you’ll find out that tonal values in a painting can “flatten” an uneven surface or completely eliminate from our perception the protruding forms on the substrate. We will create a very complex, textured surface, then paint a single object on it and witness this amazing “disappearance” of the texture, caused optically by the tonal rendering of the form’s lights and shadows.
Please note that you will need to transport your artwork home, so you will want to bring a protective drop cloth for your car, in case the art is wet.
Figurative Painting or Drawing
Level: Beginner to Advanced
With a live model (clothed) you will have the opportunity to sketch, draw, or paint from observation. During the 3-hour class, the model will hold one pose. You can make your own choice to either devote the entire session to one finished artwork, or time yourself and create multiple pieces in 1-10 minutes each. If you prefer to work in mixed media, you can do that as well. One day project.
Please note that your works may still be wet at the end of class, so please bring a protective drop cloth for your car.
Model fee applies, $6 to $10, depending on the number of students in class.

No prerequisite needed
Learn to draw and paint and explore the so-called Right-brain style of learning - FAST! The Spark class is like an enlightenment - the R-brain makes it effortless.
Spark Class is designed for adults who want to experience a different kind of art education that opens up your hidden potential, and for children who are already brilliant artists and need no “transformation”, only guidance.
It consists of several short projects, very informative and high-paced, and at the end you will have your completed artworks to take home. You will not know in advance which projects to expect when you come, but all of them will be different from how you’d expect art to be taught.
*Child must be accompanied by an adult
All materials are provided.
For complimentary Spark Classes must present your EXPO number.
