Adult Oil Painting
These classes are open for beginning and experienced painters who are at least 14 years old.  Beginners will learn basic color mixing, brush strokes, color values, etc. while experienced students will improve their painting skills.  In these classes Trina will do the same painting along with you, and you will be able to watch her brush strokes on large monitors at the front of the room.  Trina circulates through the room frequently making sure everyone understands the techniques and no one gets left behind.  You will learn to paint while having a relaxing, fun time in our "stress free zone" known by most as the art room.

Advanced Children's Oil Painting

These classes are designed for children who have become skilled in the various techniques taught by Trina. Generally this occurs after they complete approximately six paintings, but is dependent upon several factors such as their age and their ability to focus and comprehend instructions. Trina will inform the children who are currently in the beginning oil painting class when they are ready to move up to the advanced class. Students who have studied with other instructors may qualify for for the advanced classes, but only after discussion with Trina abut their past instruction and/or showing Trina samples of their previous work.  Please call her to discuss your child's history if you are not sure which class is appropriate for them.

In these classes the students will build on the beginning class information related to brush strokes, etc. They will learn new brush strokes and refine ones they have previously learned. The paintings are more involved and the details on the paintings for the advanced students are more complex. Trina works to keep them challenged and motivated to continue painting. Students from these classes regularly win awards with paintings they submit to local home school art shows.

No classes currently scheduled.  Please contact Trina if you are interested in these classes for your child.
