Title: Loosen Up Your Painting!
Location: White Bear Center for the Arts, 4971 Long Avenue, White Bear Lake, MN 55110
Description: This class is for those who want to explore abstraction and non-objective painting to discover a path to abstraction in their own work. Or, at a minimum, to “loosen up” their paintings! It will include looking at the work of other abstractionists to give us an understanding of why their paintings “work.” There will be exercises based on abstraction techniques, and also a lot of time to paint different kinds of abstracted paintings. This class is for all skill levels, but being receptive to new concepts, fun, play, self-evaluation, and constructive feedback is required..

Date/Time: Fridays, Ongoing Class
Cost: $20 includes Supplies
Title: Watercolor Techniques
Location: Savage Library or YMCA in Burnsville
Description: I teach a beginners workshop alternating at the Savage Library or Burnsville YMCA from 12:45 to 3:00 PM. We paint on a 6 x 9 format and all supplies are provided including a mat. As a landscape painter, I paint by the seasons but I always send an email a week prior to class so painters know what picture we are doing. I have 30 years experince as an art educator, I don’t “leave anyone behind” but I do teach in a Bob Ross style and we all do the same painting step by step. My webpage is below.
