Starting from this September 14, JJ will resume offering his popular weekly oil painting classes in an artistically stimulating environment and friendly atmosphere. During each session, JJ will share his thinking process with participants and demonstrate the methods and techniques for each painting exercise. This fall JJ will have more of a focus on landscape painting (though not exclusively so).   Photographs will be used for painting reference and inspiration. He will also work with participants individually, and will offer a brief critique at the end of each session if time allows. JJ encourages participants to sign up for more than a single season if available, since the classes will be conducted in such a manner that exercises will not be repeated, nor is instruction rigid. While JJ adheres to fundamental principles throughout instruction, all else is fluid. One additional benefit of registering for more than one season is to potentially build a camaraderie and gain support from fellow artists in our community.   

How to register (by registering for this class, the participant agrees to all policies listed below):
