Weekly Painting Classes

Also known as Botticelli Classes!

Adult Botticelli classes are for beginner to advanced students. Botticelli classes provide the opportunity for professional art instruction to adult students who are serious about learning and studying art while advancing their skills through continuing education. Classes are for anyone who has always wanted to pursue painting and now has the time to sign up to begin the wonderful experience of creating art.


The Botticelli classes are held Wednesday and Thursday mornings, every week September-May. The course is designed for beginners-advanced and will be structured to focus on new techniques and subjects monthly. Early registration for this class is important because class size is limited in order to give students needed individualized attention.

Dear Fellow Artist, Art Lover, Beginning Painter,
I love to teach. Helping another person to have that “aha” moment and inspiring them to do their art on a regular basis is my goal. Doing art, making art, comprises many facets. Do we want to paint still life, intimate landscape or portrait? Depending on which, how do we start, how do we keep colors lively, how do we use our brush as an extension of us? And then, after we have been painting for awhile, the other questions which begin to surface…how to stay excited, how to grow in our work, how to photograph art work, what about selling…lots to explore! The one ingredient that will be present in each of my classes is my passion to excite, motivate, and inspire others to find true joy in expressing life through painting!
