Evening Paint [Stills, Landscapes & Portraits]

October 7 - November 18


Weekly Classes on Wednesdays 6:30-9:30pm  |  6 Online Sessions via Zoom
[No class November 4th]

The evening course will focus on the fundamentals of oil painting with two sessions devoted to still life, two to landscapes (from your photo references) and two to portrait/clothed figure from a live model.

(Those not wanting to paint from the model may work from their own still life setup.)

Model and still life material fees are extra and will be paid directly to the instructor. (Model fees will be split between all students regardless of whether they choose to paint the model.)

All levels are welcome and instruction will be tailored to your needs.

Want to learn something in specific? Email me at: jill@jillbanks.com and I will work that into the instruction.
