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?

IN-PERSON CLASSES ARE BACK!

____________________________

This summer I am offering 3 separate weekend-long workshops. You can sign up for 1, 2, or all 3!!! Each weekend will be a different theme.The class will run for 6 hours each day which will include time for discussions, critiques, lunch and coffee breaks. The first two workshops will be traditional/representational painting. The third one will be a more abstract approach to landscape painting. ALL LEVELS WELCOME!

My studio is big enough to accommodate 8 people, socially distanced. Also, there are 5 large windows for very good circulation.

***VACCINATION PROOF IS REQUIRED!

And very exciting news-The Guild Art store has moved into my building! Materials/class packets can be bought directly through the store and picked up the 1st day of class. Information will be provided upon registration.

Mixed Media in Contemporary Landscape Painting

Play, experiment, loosen up, have FUN, then make sense of it all, pulling composition together to make a statement.

Explore the mixed media world using many different tools and materials to give you unlimited creativity and freedom of expression. In this class, we will do exercises to learn how to create various effects of texture, depth, transparency, and mark-making. There will be discussion about ways to “abstract” the landscape, bringing it into the contemporary realm. The last 1/4 of the workshop will be spent on a final project with more focus.

  • 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.

    George S. 1st Time Painter
  • 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!

    Carolee S. 1st Time Painter
