At the end of the class, take home a land or sea scape painting suitable for framing!  This is a Step by Step, watch and repeat format.  Observe the instructor doing and explaining the techniques to be learned.
Then you do it! Your instructor coaches and assists.

"5 out of 5.  Step by step instruction and explanations were very thorough"

"Bob was very thorough with details." "Fun, relaxing time"

"The facility worked well for this class.  Plenty of room."

"Bob was very helpful, I enjoyed learning about the techniques."


In addition to classes, I can conduct Painting Demonstrations for your local club or organization. These lectures can be adjusted to fit a time-frame you are trying to fill; 30 minutes, 60 minutes, etc.  During the event, I will complete an oil painting start to finish, and elaborate my painting background and the actual techniques I am employing during the demo.

Come have Fun, You Can Do It !!
