Learn to Paint...
Ann Marie offers Fall, Winter and Spring classes in the Richmond area. You are always welcome to join our class.
Each class is 10 weeks long and enrollment is limited to 10. Students may make up missed classes in the other class when possible. If Chesterfield
or Henrico schools announce closure due to inclement weather we cancel class.
Classes are offered on Tuesdays and Thursdays
Some experience with painting is preferred but we welcome all levels. The basic principles of technique, color, composition, value and perspective
are incorporated into the classes.
Instruction is held on a weekly basis with a combination of informal lecture, on-going demonstration, critique,
guided practice or structure as requested by the group. (Oil is the medium used by Ann, but students may use any media).
Classes are small, informal, and designed to accommodate individual preferences. Some student’s work independently with attention as needed. Others
decide four themes for paintings for the session. These might include a choice of still life, seascape, landscape, flowers, something architectural,
or a figure or portrait. Students work at their own pace and may or may not choose to finish all four of the suggested subjects.
The objective for all classes is to foster a pleasant creative work environment, to introduce and guide painting technique and to provide positive
constructive criticism. Student individual needs will always be addressed.
The cost of the class is $175.00. Because space is limited, to ensure your place, payment must be made by the first day of class.
Upon registering, new students will receive a materials list and directions to the studio, which is off River Road in the Far West End.
