The primary focus in this class is on the individual student. Bob will tend away from teaching to the class as a whole but, rather, concentrate his efforts on discovering where each student would like to go and then helping him/her proceed in that direction. Thus, Bob's classes are generally filled with rank beginners through members who would be consider professionals.

Students may work in the medium of their choice. They may work from their imaginations, bring in favorite photos to paint from or set up still life objects – it’s their choice.

All aspects of painting – from materials to theory – are delved into. Questions are answered and mini-demos are given to illustrate techniques, drawing, color mixing and so on.

There is a limit of 10 students maximum so be sure to sign up right away before the class closes!  Email
