Look at student work here!

Class Description: For beginners, this is an introduction for students who would like to learn oil paints. More advanced painters are welcome as well, as many artists struggle to learn how to bring their paintings to completion. There is very basic art instruction; perspective, shading, etc., and then how to use your paint to achieve your goal. Use of mediums, kinds of brushes, different ways to execute a painting. Emphasis on accuracy, learning to observe, gaining confidence in your skills so you can go your own way. For artists who have experience and would like to enhance their knowledge, you may bring paintings you are working on or projects you'd like to start. Having trouble with certain techniques? Want to learn more about finishing a painting? Bring it in! Classes are ongoing, so you may attend as long as you like. It is important that ALL students contact me before attending the class.

About the Instructor:
: I was lucky to find a wonderful instructor over fifteen years ago who shared his knowledge of academic painting. Since then, I have been perfecting my technique - after all those years there is always something new to learn. I love realism and that is my speciality, but I still like to go from one end of the spectrum to the other with it. Thus, my work ranges from super-detailed trompe l'oeil to more loose and colorful paintings; all the while exploring what paint can do and honing my skills. I enjoy painting just about anything, from animals to still life; each subject has its own set of challenges and I learn from them all. My work has been exhibited in local and national galleries and collected in the US and overseas. Contact George at 772 460 0894 or for any questions regarding this class.
