My Fall/Winter Vacation

Spanish Painting

2022 Personal Art Classes –
Online or In-Person

In person classes require all students to be vaccinated against COVID-19. Online classes are available for unvaccinated students.

I teach both painting and drawing classes, in-person and online. In-person classes are taught out of my art studio in Northeast Kansas City, in the shadows of the renovated Kansas City Museum. I’ve been teaching online art classes for over a year to a variety of children, adults and out of town students as well. For more information, check out my personal online art classes.

My personalized fun, enjoyable, and informative art classes that will teach you the techniques, tips and concepts you need to learn to draw and paint or develop your skills.

2022 Art Shows and Events

It’s been a while since I had a live, in-person exhibition of my work, but it looks like 2022 could have a fairly full schedule after two long years interrupted by everybody’s favorite pandemic. While work continues on new paintings, drawings and events, I am scouting out locations to hold these shows. Stay tuned for more information! In the meantime, you can look at my past art shows and events here.
