Cost: $250 for 8 classes

Payment: You can use Zell, Venmo, or cash and pay Susan Dull or give Curney a check made payable to Susan Dull.

What do you bring to class? Easels are provided, or you can bring our own. Bring all your painting supplies and don’t forget drop cloths.

Subject Matter: Please bring any paintings that you have been working on in the last few months and your reference material. Curney will be doing critiques as during the next two classes.

To register, please email Susan Dull @ to be sure that there is room for you in the class. Your check will hold your place in class. Class fee is $300, which includes model fee. No refunds once classes have started.

Future classes will be updated week by week. Will post info on Sundays.
RSVP is required for each session so there can be the correct number of tables and not exceed 12.

Beginners, intermediate and advanced levels are welcome. Classes are primarily focused on oil painting, but Curney welcomes artists who work in acrylic and watercolor. The use of oil paint — from brushes and canvases to palette and technique — is the emphasis in these classes. Curney will demonstrate how the use of a limited palette emphasizes the importance of color, value, intensity, and placement of paint. Composition and the use of photos versus using still-life setups and plein air landscapes will be discussed. Demos and exercises are combined with painting time, or artists have the option to paint on their own with help from Curney throughout the class.



Painting with Robin Caspari

Ongoing Tuesdays. Choose from two class times:

  • Class One: 9:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.
  • Class Two: 12:30 p.m. – 3:30 p.m.

Join Robin for a series of painting classes that focus on creating confident and dynamic work in or out of the studio. Robin spotlights a clear method of painting while focusing on each student’s artistic goals. Painters are taught how to set up and use her color wheel palette as an integral tool in the painting process. She holds large design concepts above all else, encouraging the expression of individual creativity. Value is also a fundamental concept that takes precedence in class. All levels of painters are welcome; we all learn together. Classes are held in a beautiful professional studio environment. Oil and acrylic painters accepted … from abstract to impressionist. The first class of each series is reserved for formal teaching, and Robin gives demonstrations in paint and design. Fee: $185 for six classes.
