PAINTING CLASSES

I have over 15 years of experience of teaching private painting classes for all levels of students, from beginners to advanced students.

Each class is geared to each individual’s painting level. I have taught beginners as well as more advanced students to help them achieve their own goals. Students can choose the subject matter, and I assist with composition, paint application, color mixing, values, form and teach some of the concepts of great painters with my knowledge of art history. I believe in practice and learning through doing. While some classtime will be devoted to the basics of painting, the main focus of the classes is to allow the student to practice painting and develop and use the lessons learned to build their own confidence and abilities. I have over 15 years of teaching experience.

These art classes are located in the historic northeast just blocks from the Kansas City Museum. There are plenty of flexible class times that will fit with your busy schedule!

Kansas City Painting Classes – INFO

  • 2018 RATE
    Eight weeks of drawing classes costs $320
  • BRING A FRIEND
    You can bring a friend, colleague, or family member along and each of you only pay $200 for eight lessons
  • STUDENT LOAN/SENIOR RATE
    For adults aged 22-26 and over 60, the rate for classes is $280 for eight weeks and $140 for four weeks

MATERIALS:
Palettes, easels, rags and liquid materials will be provided. Paints, canvasses, and brushes are the responsibility of the student.  I teach both oil and acrylic painting, but recommend beginning students to use acrylics, as they cost less, easier to use and more adaptable, and generally take less time than oils, which allows for more progress to be made during the class sessions.  I have a basic list of materials that can be picked up at any art or hobby store upon request.

Class schedules are fairly flexible, with advance notice, classes can be rescheduled during the week or in case of vacations or other issues, a week can be skipped without losing your classtime.  I just ask that you not abuse this and notify me as early as possible if you won’t be able to attend an art lesson.

CLASS SCHEDULE:
Class times are available on a rolling basis, but times do fill up fast at the end of summer, so if you’d like to reserve a specific spot, the earlier is better.
