Classes and Workshops

Through Art for The Journey, a Richmond based nonprofit, I provide adult (15 years old and up) studio classes and intensive workshops, including day-long plein air experiences in and around Richmond, VA and in Swan Quarter, NC. As adjunct faculty at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts Studio School I provide workshops in Impressionism at the Studio School. You can visit the VMFA Studio School and browse its catalogue here.

Studio classes are scheduled in six week sessions and cost $240, which includes all materials. The day long workshops cost $75, including materials. Once you purchase a six week session those weeks are yours until you use them. If there is a break in your attendance you simply pick up where you left off when you come again. You can start at any time.

In order to make the wonderful experience of painting available to as many people as possible, We offer to provide all the materials, including French Easels, paint, palettes, canvas and even paper towels. All you need do is show up ready to enjoy the experience.
