Alan's Painting Classes

If you would like to try painting with me in my studio or outdoors, with a loose, quick and impressionistic style learning the how-to of composition, value and color. I will help you take the mysterys out of plein air painting and studio painting and bringing your paintings to the next level.  Learn to paint alla prima (in one sitting). VIP members, show off your art work in the studio gallery! Each session will include half hour demonstration in the morning on how to select a subject, use color to display light, and plan and execute a finished piece. During the afternoon, we will break for lunch. In the last hour, I will provide individual help; making sure everyone completes a finished painting.  For outdoor painting sessions, be prepared for the day's weather conditions!  Spring, summer, and fall Plein air sessions check calender for dates and times. ($75.00 fee) We will meet from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm and critiques in the last hour. Light lunch included. (General Area) Upper Peninsula of Michigan and ocational Green Bay and  Door County, WI area depending attendance. Location will be reviled on our  Events Calendar page

All of our classes include instruction, paint, canvas (11"x14"), easel, and brushes.  (If you have your own brushes you can bring them, if not we will provide some for you to use.)   NO experience is necessary!  Once registered, just show up 15 minutes early to get settled, this helps class to start on time.  Be ready to have fun creating your masterpiece!
