Spring Classes at Chatfield College

I will be teaching two classes at Chatfield College starting in January in the Spring Semester. I find it odd that the Spring semester starts in January- especially since I agreed to teach a Landscape class.
(read the following in a grumpy old man voice) "Back in my day, the school year was broken up into quarters, and they were named appropriately!"

 Below is a painting I did at the college after my afternoon class. They have some lovely grounds on which to paint, though we will probably not be going outside until the weather cooperates.

Thought I would post this in case anyone in the Ohio counties of Brown, Clermont, Clinton, Highland or Warren have been dying to take one of my classes. The college is in St. Martin, Ohio conveniently located betwixt  those five counties.
If you are wondering about the experience of taking one of my classes, one of the students wrote an essay about the class which you can read here: Extra Credit

"Spring" Semester Landscape Painting Class
 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. No experience necessary.

The second class is an intermediate painting class.

"Spring" Semester Intermediate Painting Class
  Probably more appropriately titled Beginning Painting II. I will probably teach this class very much like the beginning class. I am sure anyone that took the class before would agree, going over the basics again is a great idea.
This class is basically a still life painting class. We will set up a collection of items and paint from that week to week. There will be a few drawing and painting exercises in there as well.
