Classes and Workshops


I teach small private classes at my studio/home. Class subjects include Beginning Drawing,  Portraiture, Persepctive, as well as Watercolor Painting. Starting the first week of October I will teach Portrait Drawing on Wednesday  mornings from 10 to noon and a Beginning Watercolor class that will meet every other Tuesday afternoon beginning October 9.  Use the contact page to find out more about classes for Winter 2019.


I also teach drawing classes through Bainbridge Island Parks.  Sketchbook Journaling a how-to-draw class, will be Tuesday mornings from 10 am to noon.  Perspective Drawing will explain how to get all those tricky angles just right; it takes place Monday mornings from 10 to noon.  Both classes begin the first week of October for six sessions.  The next Parks classes will begin mid February.  You can sign up after the first of the year here.
