Classes and Workshops
Art Classes are designed for students ages 14 through adult, beginner through advanced. Using a step by step process, students learn the fundamentals of drawing, painting, design/composition, perspective, working with color and more. Students also learn how to add depth, contrast, dimension and power to their work.
Please look at the student gallery found on this site to see a collection of works by students past and present.
Lessons are both fun and informative. They are tailored to meet the needs of the individual student according to their level of knowledge and experience.
Younger students and beginners are encouraged to try their hand at several mediums.
I offer instruction in Pencil. Charcoal. Colored Pencil, Pastel, Oils, Acrylics, Scratchboard, Pyrography, Pen and Ink, Water Color and mixed media.
Subject matter is based on each students area of interest including, but not limited to landscape, wildlife, still life, abstract, portraits and floral. Each year students taking classes at the Black Mountain Center for the Arts are given the unique opportunity to show their work in an Emerging Artists showcase.

Workshops are designed for adults, beginner through advanced and are held periodically throughout the year at various locations. These workshops include 1, 2 and 4 day classes of intensive study focusing on the basics of preparing a painting surface, creating an image and painting techniques used to add depth and dimension to your work. The image is selected for the student and the classes are conducted as a paint along with the instructor. Students are required to bring their own supplies.
Workshops are offered in landscape (both studio and plein air), portrait, wildlife, pet portraits and still life. Workshops are limited to 8 students per class allowing for more one on one time with each student. Check back on this site for updated listings for on going classes and workshop schedules.
