Fun and Skill-Building for All Levels and Abilities
“Teaching is a thrill: seeing students enjoy creativity and acquire skills they previously thought were impossible. Everyone is fully capable of being artistic. By teaching with openness and a sense of adventure, the magic of it all is for everyone to enjoy.”
All classes are for all levels: first-time beginners and those with experience to improve skills, with individual attention to advance at your own pace.
“Drawing/Painting at North County lagoons” Contact Linda for more dates.
Draw/paint with any media with individual attention for beginners and those with experience will improve skills. Linda is expert in highlights, shading, depth, and much needed perspective. Learn to create subject matter that is dimensional, well-grounded and in proper proportion. Realistic, expressive, abstract. The lagoons are lovely, full of egrets, foliage, and waterways. Enjoy a relaxing and fun morning. Bring lunch if you wish to stay longer.
REGISTER IN ADVANCE: Must RSVP–class dates may change, so confirm with me and register in advance. What to bring? I will send an email to you with suggestions. RSVP asap.
