I have been teaching oil painting for over 15 years. This has been a journey in itself, as I have brought my students along with me as I have grown in my own work. I have taken workshops with some of the best oil painters of our time and share every bit with my students. Perhaps I'm too humbled by the great artist's I've been honored to be around, but I think I may be a better instructor than painter!

Art Critiques: Critique - $40.00
Send me a jpg image with any questions you have, and I will give you a written critique or discuss over the phone. Add $20 for each additional painting. I will provide a positive and constructive initial review of the painting and will make suggestions on possible improvements.
Positive reinforcement and solid knowledge of design, shape, color, value and edges.
Having served on the board of two national art societies, I have quite the eye for what will stand out in a national show jury process. I would be happy to help you select work for a submission!
Ages Taught: Adults
Skill Levels Taught: Beginner, Intermediate
Location of Lessons: In studio, Online
Lesson Details & Fees: Cooper Atelîer's representational impressionistic oil painting, runs on Tuesdays from September to June - day class and evening class option.
Strong importance is placed on a good foundation of painting principals such as shape, color, value and edges, while still allowing a certain energy or personality of your work to flourish.
Much positive individual attention is given to each student, and some classes are in follow-me format. The subjects will travel from landscape to still-life, floral, and occasionally portrait and figure. We will also have special series of study on value, color, and certain techniques that are great reviews for all!
My instruction method is well liked because I give a lot of time to each student and always balance critique and instruction with positive notes of accomplishments!
