Take some art classes

I am offering what I can best and humbly describ as the most traditional and information filled classes available in the tristate area. I would also describe the classes as sexy, but that one is really up for discussion.

The first class is a still life class. Students will be able to work on a painting throughout the class and have a fairly satisfactory piece of work at the end.

Oil Painting Still Life with Me [Thursdays, March 19 - May 21 from 6:30pm to9:30pm]: A beginning painting course where the students will not only begin with the very basics of painting but will begin to learn how to see and study nature.The Student's own work is the forum for inculcating this knowledge through verbal instruction, demonstrations and hands-on critiques. There will also be plenty of suggested reading. I am offering two classes this spring.
Please contact me for a full supply list.
Cost of the class is $250, ($50 deposit will hold your spot) ; supplies are the student’s responsibility. Limited to 11 students. Located in at the Women Art Club and Cultural Art Center, 6980 Cambridge Ave. in Mariemont, Ohio,

Plein- Air Landscape Painting Class [Saturdays, April 18-June 6, 10 am-1 pm]
Experience the pleasure of painting, of self-expression, and of seeing the world in a new way as you meet at various locations and scenic parks around Cincinnati to learn to sketch and to paint with oils. Drawing on the ideas of impressionism, you will practice the techniques needed to complete painted sketches, including basic composition, value, pattern, color spotting, and covering the canvas. Then, building on those skills, you will complete a larger fully realized landscape painting that will capture the impression of light and color of the Cincinnati landscape. In case of rain, we will arrange to meet indoors or in parks with overhead cover. Details and directions to the various locations will be given in class. No experience necessary.
Sat., 10 am-1 pm; April 18-June 6; 8 wks; $175 (no discounts); supplies are the student’s responsibility.
A list will be sent with your enrollment confirmation or see; #3715-01
Location: First class meets at artist’s studio in Eden Park; then at various parks thereafter
