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 and how to build a painting in a fun and effective way. I also do painting demonstrations throughout the process for the group and each individual, explaining visually how to solve problems or create different effects.


The workshops run for 5 weeks, each session is 2.5 hours. You can chose either the morning or the evening class, both are held on Tuesdays.  ALL LEVELS WELCOME!

Landscape Painting with Focus on Composition

Learn how to use composition to create dynamic and powerful paintings.

In this workshop students will bring in 3-5 reference photos of landscapes. First we will talk about the “dos” and “don’ts” of good composition in painting. We will then analyze the photos and figure out the best way to organize the elements in your image to make a cohesive and balanced design. Finally, it’s time to build a painting, step-by-step!

Class size limited for individual attention.

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

  • 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.

  • 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!
