6 week session:

Students will work individually at their own pace over the course of 6 weeks. The focus will be on an expressive style of painting while applying some basic principles of art: composition, value, and color. Allison will do several short demos during the 6 weeks.

Please email Allison ( with questions and images of your work (if you have any). This will help her tailor the class to your level.

Allison typically teaches painting with the use of either oil or acrylic paints. Please bring some pencils and a small notebook for thumbnail sketches. Bring what you have to the first class and she can recommend other supplies.
