PAINTING CLASSES

​​Painting classes with artist Jeff Stanley are for kids and adults age 10 and up, and are currently happening every Tuesday at:


 WESTHAVEN CENTER FOR THE ARTS


10:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.

or

5:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.


(Does 3 hours seem like a long class?  It's okay if you want or need to leave early.  Each student is working on their own painting and at their own pace.)



*New Students - Plan on arriving one hour early for your first class.  Please call to sign up!  


 ​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.   


You will get as much help as you want.  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.   


Cost is $100 for 4 classes and is due at first class.  The fee includes materials for your first painting only.  After your first painting, either bring your own materials, or find out how much it will cost to use materials provided by instructor.


*Remember to bring a snack, tea bag, etc.   There is a refrigerator, stove, and oven available for use.   


  • To sign up, or to ask  any questions, please call Jeff at (707) 497-8003.
