Adult Classes

Taking a class is a great way to experience an in-depth exploration of a medium or topic. Classes are paid for by the session. 

Fall Session Classes run for 8 weeks, September 24th - November 17th.

Painting Basics with Rhona Candeloro

Mondays, 6:30-9:00pm, Jan 14th - March 4th

Wednesdays, 12:30-3pm, Jan 16th - March 6th

Adult Class

The emphasis of the Painting Basics class will be learning to draw and paint through the exploration of basic techniques. As you work in either pencil, oil, acrylic or pastel, you are drawing and composing in value and colors. In this art class, we will learn how to use these concepts to achieve your particular goals or ideas by studying how light defines shape and color, allowing form to emerge. There is no experience necessary. Everyone works at their own pace and level.
