NOTE: This is an In-Person Art Class.

Painting is sumptuous, exciting, and one of the most popular mediums used by  artists throughout the world. Oil painting is an inspiring way for artists to express themselves through color, texture, imagination and more. In this painting class for all levels, including beginners as well as students who have taken art classes previously,  every participant will receive individualized, tailor-made instruction from an expert professional NYC artist and educator in each class, while also learning a variety of techniques, styles and genres of oil painting (or acrylic painting, each student may choose their favorite!). From texture, composition and glazing to color relationships, brushstroke and building dimension, each and every painting class will introduce learners to new fundamental painting techniques that will help you to create paintings to feel proud of. In this engaging and relaxing art class in NYC, you will: 

• Learn and practice fundamental painting techniques to both explore and incorporate into your paintings
• Master artistic techniques that will deepen your painting experience
• Relax, de-stress, and feel inspired while you express your unique voice through your paintings
• Explore both foundational and advanced techniques, such as: color mixing, color value, composition, glazing, brushwork, paint application, texture, and more
• Paint from both provided and personally chosen subject matter, such as: still life, landscape, abstraction, portraiture, and more
• Receive nurturing, customized one-on-one expert art instruction based on your personal needs and goals
• Create multiple paintings that you will be proud to hang in your home!
• Engage with your peers in a supportive, non-judgmental art community and receive the health and wellness benefits that art classes are known for, including stress relief, boosted self-esteem, and a strong sense of accomplishment!
