We will spend about 2-3 sessions on still life, 3-4 sessions on landscape, 2-3 sessions on figure and portrait type of paintings. The last two sessions will be spent working on a project of the students' choosing.

The class will be held on Monday and Thursday mornings from 0900-1200 hours, starting on Monday, July 11, 2016, and ending Thursday, August 11, 2016.

The class will be limited to 8 students to allow for maximum one-on-one time. The cost for the 10-session course will be $250.
