Each class is approximately 60-90 minutes

Four classes minimum per month.

Recordings of the videos are available for viewing anytime afterwards.

Subjects will be varied, but most will be taught in a looser style. Some subjects will be student suggested.

Happiness and laughter will be included, as well as a wee bit of singing and dancing - to warm us up.

You will learn about value and color and paint consistency. 

Fundamentals and elements of art and design will be incorporated. 

Templates and reference photos are included. 

Again, expect to have fun as you paint. Yay!

Any brush that will hold a point, some paint and some water. Inexpensive will work. I use Rosemary and Co and DaVinci brushes a lot. Inexpensive brushes are Royal, Silver Black Velvet, and Cheap Joes Golden Fleece. Also, Chinese calligraphy brushes are great.

Round Sizes - I use these the most. It's nice to have 3 sizes



10 or 12

DaVinci Nova Series 122 - Any small stiff, flat synthetic brush for lifting out paint (synthetic)







Good for washes. Don’t buy them if you don’t already have them.

Spray Bottles

Any spray bottle. It's more fun if the spray pattern is irregular

I use a small finer mist spray bottle for wetting the paints on my palette


Your choice. I’ve used all kinds. I prefer white porcelain because it doesn't stain. I currently use small bread dipping saucers - with a variet of primary colors on each one.

Pencil 2b or mechanical

Masking Tape

Paper towels or facial tissue

Small towel or rag

Water containers – 2

Mr. Clean Magic Eraser

Masking Fluid – Your choice. Winsor and Newton, Pebeo, Incredible White Mask

Drinking straw (or the plastic tube that protects the end of the paintbrush)
