Learning to Paint

We are all learners at different levels. Some are just starting on the road to develop artistic competence and others are developing their talent. We draw and paint in all mediums, and experiment with different techniques. You will find the style with which you are comfortable.

Learning from others

Alternate weeks we watch art films and films about artists. This allows us to "get into" the minds of artists and artistic presentation.

We kindly assess each others work to learn and to encourage.

The desire to Paint

It is a common perception that artists have a talent that other people don't have. You may think that you don't have any special talent or that you were not born with the ability to paint, but you may have the desire to paint. Non painters don't realizes how much endeavor artists put into studying their craft.
