What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I offer 2 types of classes.  Beginners often like a 2 hour introductory class to follow and paint a pre-planned subject.  The class is $30, and supplies are included to complete a 16 x 20 canvas.  Minimum of 6 students per class.  Classes are in Bonner Springs, Kansas.

 The second option is for the serious artist.  I offer 4 week sessions of 90 minutes.  We go through art basics such as perspective, color, shading, composition.  Each artist chooses a subject photograph to paint from, and works on the painting as we study.  This class is for those who are interested in a more complete study of painting.

The cost is $100 per student for 4 classes, and supplies are required. Minimum of 6 students per class.

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I studied with art basics with illustrator, J. Leland Jones for 3 years.  My experience includes co-owner operator of a gallery for 14 years, and I am currently a full time artist with my own company.  I also serve as VP with Bonner Springs Arts Alliance, and direct the Gallery.
