Painting classes at the Westhaven Center for the Arts with artist Jeff Stanley are currently POSTPONED, but........
1. We can discuss your paintings by meeting at an outdoors location, or by emailing them to email@example.com and scheduling a phone appointment.
Please call after you email your painting. (707) 497-8003.
2. We might be able to arrange a socially distanced outdoors class either in your yard, or out on location. Please call to talk about it.
These painting classes are useful for those who have never picked up a paintbrush (total beginners), or experienced artists who want to improve.
*New Students - Plan on arriving one hour early for your first class.
**You need to call to sign up! (707) 497-8003
***Classes are Fragrance Free - Please save your perfumes, colognes, scented hair sprays, lotions, etc. for another occasion!
Paintings are done with acrylic paint on canvas. Acrylic paint is a water-based paint. Easy to use and easy to clean up.
You can paint whatever you want in the class. If you want, you can bring in photographs of things you might like to paint. Get your photos printed out!! Your photos might get marked on or folded. Or you can look through the reference photos available in the class. You are also welcome to experiment with the brushes and paint without painting something specific.
Also, feel free to bring in any paintings you have worked on in the past. Maybe you thought they were finished, but wonder what you could do to improve them.
Some students prefer to work on their own and only ask questions every once in a while, while others ask questions every step of the way. Either way or anywhere in between is fine.
*Remember to bring a snack, tea bag, etc. There is a refrigerator, stove, and oven available for use.
