This class is unique in that you are guided through meditation  on how to paint the story your soul wants to. Everybody’s soul has  something different to say. This class is unusual in that your painting  will not look like everybody else’s because this is not a paint by  number or step 1 step 2 kind of class. Art is the path to the unknown.  You will observe and watch your painting occur. Your painting will  actually be original. A yoga environment can Inspire you on how to  Compose, Paint, and Create the meaning you want, like a real Artist,  with a real Artist, in an easy going relaxed yoga atmosphere.

"one class" is 55$.

"practice" in painting is $150 (3 classes).

you may also purchase the "practice" ticket for 3 people.

All materials for oil painting are provided!  Please wear  comfortable clothes. Feel free to bring items for comfort. Water,  blankets and bolsters are available in the studio. The space is open to  move or be still.

Meet your Greater Self and Greet others.

I like to start with a demo. ½ of learning how to paint is learning how to see.

For those who haven’t painted before can learn how to in a snap! yes snap!

During this time, for those who do know how to paint and are  enjoying the model/ still life/ atmosphere, can start, or continue to  watch.

3:45-4:00

Meditation. 

Check your palette, easel, canvas, brushes, turpentine, and floor seating (provided)

4:00-4:45

It’s your turn to paint. I am mostly walking around to see if  you would like guidance, or if you would rather do your soul searching  on your own. This is your painting, so I will not tell you what to  paint, but if you ask questions on how, I will try to answer those  questions. I am prolific at Figure, Landscape, and Still-Life, as a Fine  Art Impressionistic Expressionistic and Abstract painter. I am able to  advise on any subject and any style.

you may take as many breaks as you like. The whole point of  painting on the floor is to train our bodies to sit, be still, stretch,  and breathe.

4:45-5:00

Yoga.

5:00

Adios.

Each class is meant as a series. or as a one hit wonder. you will  master your technique with practice and patience coming again and again.  I offer a sense of knowledge to paintings. It's like yoga. the  beginners class and masters class is the same, how much knowledge you  have is the difference. The only difference between myself and a  traditional art school is that I am drawn to drink, food, friends,  movement, and music while painting. Other than that, this is a classical  approach to Oil painting which I have been teaching for the last 25  years at several Universities Internationally and Nationally.

There is no such thing as an advanced Artist in my humble  opinion. We learn each time we paint. Being an Artist means you are  looking and finding ways to tell the world and you what you see that  sometimes isn't seen by yourself or another, or what you or another  wants to, or will, or have seen. Be open to receive . I work with  everyone from everywhere. This is an Adult class, I also teach "kid  plein air, painting with Instructor Preet Srivastava"

This is a series of 3 classes. You are welcome to work on the same  painting from class before, or work on your painting during the week  (like homework). Or just start a new painting each class. or go with the  flow, and decide as it happens. I am intending to work on the same  painting all 3 classes, but you never know and you always know.

some paintings are one lucky shot. some take decades...

I instruct different painting classes every week.

“Christmas does not happen only once a year, but it is a reminder  that beyond all of your personal needs and immediate difficulties, you  have a greater mission. And as in the life of Jesus, you must come to  find this. You must feel it and allow it to emerge. You must recognize  that alone you cannot fulfill it because it is not for you alone. You  will wander in the desert, you will experience the temptations of the  world, and you will feel the conflict between this greater emerging part  of yourself and your personal wishes, preferences and fears. For, like  Jesus, you must allow this greater power and greater purpose to eclipse  your life, to envelop your life and to reorganize and redirect your  life. This is Christmas.” Marshall Vian Summers.

make it happen !
