WEEKLY OIL PAINTING WITH JJ

Starting from this September 24, 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.  Photographs will be used for painting reference and inspiration. He will also work with participants individually, and will offer brief critique at the end of each session if time allows.  One change starting this fall is that JJ will only be taking intermediate and above level students in order to better serve his students' needs and utilize his skill. (His classes are not designed for beginners.)  JJ encourages participants to sign up for more than a single season if they can, 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 of additional benefits of registering for more than one season is to potentially build a camaraderie and gain support from fellow artists in our community.   

Bring your own supplies; the gallery will provide chairs, tables, and easels. 

A supply list will be provided once registration and payment are both completed.
