Prerequisite: “Learn to Paint in One Day” workshop

MasterClasses are the next step after you have taken the Learn to Paint in One Day workshop. MasterClasses are based on utilizing the enormous inborn capacity of the Right brain that has been activated by the “Learn to Paint”: that’s why L2P is the prerequisite for any MasterClass. In L2P you develop a different relationship with time, so your pace of absorbing information and the speed of grasping any technique is like that of a young child. The typical “grownup” hesitation, the resistance to unfamiliar activities are lifted, and it becomes possible to approach any new subject with ease, positive energy, and curiosity rather than fear. Even artists with experience go through this right-brain training, because you need a full awareness of the artistic potential you have inside. In 3 hours of any MasterClass you learn ANY technique and effortlessly create an artwork with that technique from start to completion.

You can acquire a variety of skills and become a capable artist by selecting MasterClasses that you want to explore. There is no specific order in which they should be taken. You can start with the ones that sound the most interesting.

MasterClass’ style of learning is perfectly suited for a busy adult and especially satisfying when you want to learn art FAST.

Materials: you don’t have to bring any supplies, everything is provided; however, please bring your photo camera, to record your progress and post your work on Social Media.

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” texture, even eliminate from perception real 3D elements on a substrate. We will create a very complex, textured surface and paint a single object on it, to witness the power of tonal painting.

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 a little wet.                                                                                    


  • 2 wooden substrates that look like stretched canvas, any size: for example 30x40, 20x20, 36 x 36, or 12x36. The substrates do not have to be of the same size. Round shapes are also suitable.
  • Wood glue
  • Paper towels
  • Gloves (optional)
  • Gesso - white or black
  • Acrylic paints, your preferred colors
  • An object to depict, that has personal value to you
  • Photo camera (or cell phone), for taking snapshots of the evolution of your piece

SATURDAY, 10:00am-1:00pm

Figurative Painting or Drawing

Level: Beginner to Advanced  

With a live model (clothed) you will have the opportunity to sketch from observation. During the 3-hour class, the model will hold one pose, but you can time yourself and create pieces in 1-10 minutes. If you prefer to make just one rendering, you can do that. 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.


  • Bring your preferred drawing or painting materials.
  • Roll of paper towels
  • Photo camera (or cell phone) for taking snapshots of your progress
  • Model fee - $7-$10, depending on the number of students in class
