Class Description

For people who claim they can't draw a stick figure and seasoned artists who want to sharpen their skills and talk about their work. Our approach is to cater the course to the individual; students can explore and be guided through the subject matter and styles they choose, or request a tailored plan designed by us. ABSOLUTELY NO EXPERIENCE NECESSARYClasses are limited to 12 students.

Class Info

Each course is 6 weeks long and meets once a week. Students can start at any time; we have a one-room schoolhouse method that supports beginners and advanced students alike. Price is $155 per 6 week session. Students may purchase a starter kit of supplies from Red Dot Gallery at the first session at $60 dollars additional for painting and $45 for drawing. Students are allowed one free missed class per six week session. Classes are only for adults 18 and over.
