Classes and Workshops

Fall 2018- Winter 2019

Private and Semi-Private (Group of 2-4) Lessons/Mentoring

Come by yourself or with friends. Private or small-group lessons give you the benefit of personalized classes that let you learn at your own pace and explore new techniques as they align with your growth as an artist. 


Both beginner and experienced pastelists welcome. Note: Pastel classes have a maximum number of three students, not four.

Specialty classes focused on topics such as: creating homemade painting surfaces, wet underpainting techniques, working outdoors in plein air*, can also be scheduled.

Classes For Artists Working In Any Medium: 

Drawing: Improve your sketching and drawing with various techniques.

Plein Air*/ Still Life Sketching: Discover the strategies for finding and accurately sketching a composition when working outside or with a still life.

Sizes and Ratios: In just one class, learn how to match the size of your paper/canvas to both a photo reference or scenes from life. Working in the correct ratio will give you more accurate drawings and compositions.

iPhone Photography, Take Great Reference Photos: In two or four classes learn techniques for taking and editing better reference photos with your iphone.

Feedback and Critique: Gentle, honest, focused feedback is important to any artist's growth. Critiques can take place either in my studio or by email. Private sessions only.

Each class lasts 2.5 hours. Contact Meg to discuss scheduling.
* Plein Air classes are September thru October weather permitting.
