New painting Class Schedule, New Beginnings

Beginning Anew
Schedule of  winter painting classes

"Windswept"  Watercolour 

Christmas is barely over and a new year is about to arrive and my thoughts are split between what is ending and what has not yet materialized. On a personal note 2016 was a challenge for me in a physical sense starting with a broken wrist thanks to my lovable energetic mutt. From there it moved to hip replacement surgery. Needless to say it was a challenge but what touched me so much was the care and support I received from friends, family, students and a wonderful community. I feel such a deep sense of gratitude to all who touched my life during the past year. Thank you.

Painting continues as it is my way of being in this world. Teaching is a love and a way of sharing what I know and my views. My schedule of teaching is changing a bit for the winter  and I look forward to those who return and new ones to start. My training ranges from a traditional academic fine arts degree to various workshops embracing art in its many forms.   A sense of creative play is what continually keeps art alive and interesting for me. Picasso said that "Every child is an artist but it is hard for the artist to keep that child alive in the adult." I welcome those with a playful curiosity to engage in the artistic journey to join my classes or workshops. No experience necessary.
