September Grumbacher Instructor Schedule

Its been a busy few weeks gearing up for fall with my video projects and a brand new Cafepress shop with my work!

Yep. I turned this watercolor and gouache painting into EARRINGS!

And for those of you who are interested in taking private drawing classes or acrylic painting classes with a Certified Grumbacher Instructor, my class schedule is up for September! 

Here is an example of a still-life in progress from my Basic Still Life class done by one of my very talented students (whom was generous enough to permit me to show you).

His capture of the reflections was so gorgeous I had to show you.
This was the reference object for his still-life painting.

You may either sign-up online or in person at the Michaels location in Riverhead, NY.  

How each class works 

Drawing Classes

For drawing classes, we begin with the basics, mainly concentrating on shape and form. Then I teach you value and shading techniques (as well as some of my favorite 'out-of-the-box' techniques for getting proportions and values as close as possible. 

Painting Classes

For each painting class (except for still-life), you will work from a photo. You have the option of using the photo I supply for you or bringing your own photo (MUST be a public domain photo or one taken BY YOUR OWN CAMERA) to class, which I will have to approve. Some subjects might be too hard for a beginner class so there is a possibility I will recommend it for a more advanced, 4hr Painting class. 

Each Drawing Class and Painting Class Is Customized to Your Skill Level

Every class is geared toward your skill level so if you are completely new to painting or drawing, do not worry. Just let me know and I will be sure to show you the basics. If you are advanced and are looking to take your art to the next level, I can do that, too. Just be sure to let me know so that I can work with you to show you the more advanced techniques I've accumulated over the past few years.
