You can RSVP now for my upcoming Ridgewood Art Institute workshop at:
I had a great time at the Ridgewood Art Institute yesterday for the reception of the 2017 Instructors' Show! I took photos of my pieces to share, but check out the exhibition if you're in northern NJ.
My class at the Ridgewood Art Institute meets every Wednesday from 3:30PM to 5:30PM. It's an oil painting class for young people (ages 8-17) and focuses on figure painting, portraits, pet portraits and animals. Anyone interested in attending can stop by the class or contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org More information about the class can be found HERE!
Day 5 on this painting and I'm nearing completion! I'll work on it for one or two more sessions then I'll sign it and let it dry.
Also, tomorrow is my first class at the Ridgewood Art Institute! I'm really excited to start teaching oil painting full time for young people. I'm also very honored to be teaching at the school where I first started oil painting. Anyone interested in more information about my class can find it HERE.
Just put the finishing touches on my portrait and signed it! I'll be varnishing it after it dries fully and then photographing it. I said previously that I photograph my work before I varnish it, but I've switched methods so now I photograph it after I varnish it.
On another note, my classes at the Ridgewood Art Institute start in 8 days and I'm very excited. I'm also proud to announce that I'm going to be a TA for a class in NYC at the Institute of Classical Architecture & Art. The ICAA class is titled, "Observational Drawing Skills For Architects & Designers and will be taught by John Woodrow Kelley.
