What we're about

West Coast Plein Air & Workshops Meetup is for all artists, beginner to advanced, who wish to learn about painting, drawing, and/or sculpting. My strength is in portrait and figurative work, but I teach all subjects well (horses, still life, & plein air). I have been a professional portrait painter and teaching for over 31 years! This means that I can help everyone is their own style of learning.

Do you just want to experience it, to see if it is something that you will enjoy? Have you been painting for a long time and just want to learn more about techniques? I can teach just about everyone! I am great at articulating the small stuff and making everything seem easier.

Being a great artist takes time ... but, we all start somewhere; it is something that can be learned with the right teacher. As we become better, the bar rises!

I can help you to raise your level of knowledge and skills!

Weekly one hour lecture on specific attributes to people, figure, or animals. Every week is a different type of lecture. We work through your paintings as well as any and all subjects relating to painting portraits. I am a very good teacher because of my specific ability to teach with clear concise ideas.
I am a founding member of The Portrait Society of America, and a past member of ASOPA. I have made a living at being a portrait artist, since 1982. My education came from the master portrait painters in the USA and studying renaissance artists.

$125 per calendar month or $40 per individual class. That’s 4-5 classes per calendar month. If you can't come at the specific time, you can download the week's lecture to catch up. Videos of classes are free to those who are enrolled in the class.

Watercolor painting class ONLINE! Watercolor, Pastel, & Acrylic

Online event

$125.00

Thursday 10:00-1:00 -

This class offers the opportunity to study Watercolor, simple ideas, and basic ideas for other mediums as well. We often mix mediums by adding pastels or inks to our watercolors. We experiment in this class. Many acrylic painters enjoy this class as well.

Beginners are welcome! Experimenters are expected.

Class formats: Every week there is a different 1 hour lecture /demonstration, then we talk about the painting that each person is working on individually while working together in our own spaces but not feeling alone. I help as needed while we enjoy the company of others. I don’t expect anyone to paint what I paint, unless that is a goal.

You can work in any medium you want during any of the classes. The lectures are limited to the mediums that I have written after the class times. Each week on Monday, I send an email out with the class links that describe the lectures for each class.

You will receive the video link for the classes you attend. We cover so many subjects and work through so many problems in these classes. I verbalize it in a very precise way to make it easier for all. It truly is worth every penny.

I also offer a few private lessons at $95 per hour. These are limited to a few students and can be scheduled in advance according to my time availability.
