COVID Update: The church I am using has lifted the mask mandate per CT government directives.  If you are fully vaccinated, you do not need to wear a mask during class, but it is up to you.  Of course if you're not fully vaccinated, CDC still requires you to wear it.  Honor system here, I won't be monitoring.  

Classes are held on Saturdays.  ​ Usually from 10 am - 2 pm.  Times may vary, will be confirmed prior to classes.  Call  or email if you need another day or time for a class.

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

"Bob was very thorough with details."

"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.
