Learn from Lynne

Rewarding and Accessible Classes for All Levels

Have you ever wanted to paint, but felt that something was holding you back? Have you been meaning to get back into painting after a long hiatus? Are you an artist stuck in a rut, or experiencing a block?

No Experience Necessary!



My classes are perfect for beginners, intermediates and professional artists alike. Creating a very supportive environment, I take you through a painting step-by-step. I have a unique method of teaching color theory; you’ll be able to match any color you see in the world. I also do painting demonstrations along the way, explaining visually how to solve problems or create different effects.



Every child can benefit in their development from exposure to art, which provides a healthy expressive outlet. In this session we will use the subject of landscape as an excuse to learn color theory, brushwork, and helpful techniques to create beautiful paintings with ease! During the 6 weeks we will work on several projects, both together and individual, building visual and technical skills along the way.

Class size is limited to allow for individual attention.

This summer I am offering 3 separate weekend-long workshops. You can sign up for 1, 2, or all 3!!! The class will run for 6 hours each day which will include time for discussions, critiques, lunch at the pond, and coffee breaks.

Let loose and have fun!!! In these workshops we will explore contemporary approaches to landscape painting using a variety of techniques and tools for mark-making and applying paint. The class will start out with exercises designed to teach methods and skills. As the class progresses participants will be able to apply these techniques to build paintings. We will work in small formats allowing for a lot of experimenting. The final painting on Sunday will be similar to the image shown here for each workshop. You can also bring your own reference photos to work from.

Class size is limited to allow for individual attention.


Workshop 1-Paint a Barn

Dates: June 24-25
Class Times: 10am-4pm

In this workshop we will learn architectural one-point perspective and apply it to painting a barn nestled into the landscape.

Tuition: $295
Price does not include materials; I will give you a supply list upon registration.

Workshop 2-Contemporary Trees

Dates: July 22-23
Class Times: 10am-4pm

Learn mixed media techniques using many materials at the same time. There are so many new products on the market it can be confusing and overwhelming. We will discuss how to use them and which materials can be used together. Then learn to apply paint using tools other than brushes (palette knife, squeegees, rollers, etc.)

Tuition: $295
Price does not include materials; I will give you a supply list upon registration.

Workshop 3-Paint a Wolf Kahn (FULL)

Dates: August 26-27
Class Times: 10am-4pm

Wolf Kahn (1927-2020) was a famous American Painter, who fused abstraction and representation. He was known for paintings of rural Vermont landscapes with his signature inventive use of color and composition.

I had a special opportunity to study with him. After many years of absorbing what he taught me, I am now ready to pass along some of his ideas and methods.

The beginning of the workshop will be a lecture and demonstration, in which we will observe several of his paintings. We will then practice these techniques with some quick exercises and finish the workshop with a longer painting.

Tuition: $295
Price does not include materials; I will give you a supply list upon registration.

  • Lynne Adams, with her calm compassionate manner, breaks down the painting experience into a joyful process–clear, simple, and rewarding.

    Barbara J. Accomplished Artist
  • I have always maintained that I cannot draw and therefore never attempted to paint. However, using this method, I was astonished that I painted a landscape scene from one of my vacation photos within two hours and everyone that has seen it loves it.

  • This is my third session with Lynne on the adventure of discovering the exciting world of painting. I have learned so much from her about painting landscapes. She has a very clear way of explaining color theory, mixing colors, interpreting the landscape and how to transfer it to the canvas. I have completed several good (in my opinion) paintings that people seem to enjoy. She creates a light, happy atmosphere and encourages conversation about each others interpretation of the common subject. She answers questions about her much admired paintings. Thus we learn how to accomplish a desired effect. She brings a lot of energy along with her extensive knowledge to the class. People will learn much from her along with having a very enjoyabe and memorable experience.

    Pat R. Artist, 2nd Year of taking Art Classes
  • This class sounded really fascinating, but as the time approached I began to feel really anxious. I knew that I could draw fairly well, but the idea of painting always seemed out of my realm of possibilities. But within minutes after the class began, my confidence began to grow exponentially and I came away with a painting I could hardly believe was mine, after only two hours! Lynne is a wonderful teacher--gentle, encouraging, competent. I’m inspired now to continue painting!
