Ongoing Portrait Painting Instruction & Demonstrations Every Wednesdays from 2:30 to 5:00 PM $100 per month University Art Sacramento (26th & J street) This class is designed for the student who wants to excel at portraiture. To register write to [masked] This class is filled with many lectures and demonstrations on becoming a fine art portrait artist, including and not limited to: eyes, noses, mouths, ears, skin color, bone structure, hair, hands, limbs, torsos, clothing, backgrounds, plus technique, drawing, composition, color theory, glazing, and marketing. I work individually with all students on the level they are, as well as working with the group on areas that I see needed for everyone. It is a great class for whoever you are at whatever level you are at. I openly share my 34 years of professional portrait painting experience every week with students all over the Sacramento region. To see more of my work, please go to I have been a member of the American Society of Portrait Artists and the Portrait Society of America since 1996. I have been blessed to have studied with some of the highest paid portrait artists in the US and from around the world.

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!
