Studio and Landscape Classesstudio236-view

What’s going on in my studio here in the River Arts District?

Classes and workshops range from regular ongoing weekly instruction, open studio, to occasional workshops geared to special topics and techniques. Periodically students will gather for demos and we display a showcase of work between exhibitions. Students may also have work on display.
