Where can you take ART CLASSES in the Myrtle Beach area?
Read on for a list of local Art Organizations and links to their websites...
My teaching studio is a great place to come and play in the paint. I currently offer All Media Monday Sessions and Watercolor Wednesdays. Classes are small and there is lots of individual attention.

Travel and art are my favorite things to do! This year I had the privilege to lead a group on a Tour of Tuscany, Italy. There we stayed at a fabulously restored Italian Monastery. Touring daily, we would come home to our beautiful home where our personal chef cooked for us and gave us cooking lessons. I offered art lessons to the group as another of our optional activities. In the evenings we played guitar and made music. It was the best of times and we plan a repeat in October of 2015... You should join us!
Watercolor Wednesdays: 12:30-3:30
This class is about wild and wonderful WATERCOLOR! I believe watercolor has an unmerited bad reputation among would-be artists. Watercolor is about technique, and exploring those techniques is a passion of mine. I love the random and marvelous colors which can be obtained by letting water be the vehicle for applying your paint. If you're interested in learning some tips and tricks to success, then this may be the perfect class for you.
All Media Mondays- 1-4PM
This class is open to all media...drawing, painting, glass mosaic. If you're into it, I probably have the materials and the space to do it. In this environment, we gather and create in many various ways, but we all bond in the process. Art principles cross the boundaries of mediums and I offer both suggestions, demonstrations, and critique to each student on an individual basis.
New for Novemember 2015- Saturday Sessions 1-4 PM
This November I will be teaching only on Saturdays. All media will be welcome and class will be similar to All Media Mondays. Instruction will be available in Watercolor, Acrylic, Oil, Drawing, Abstract, Collage, or Glass Mosaic.
Contact me if you'd like to study with me in any of these ways. My schedule is always changing and the calendar here on my website can let you know what's current.
Here are some of my past classes. I would be willing to teach these topics again or cover these materials in any of my "All Media" style classes:
Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain - YES YOU CAN LEARN TO DRAW! This is a drawing class which explores ways of improving drawing skills as outlined by the 2012 new and definitive REVISED book of the same name. It's a great drawing foundation, which has been time tested and it works! Teaching some of the drawing fundamentals which are not intuitive. It's a wonderful way for adult artists to "back up" and learn some of the fundamentals they may have skipped over on their way to painting pretty pictures.
Re!ease Your Inner Artist (a class which is bound to take you places you haven't been before exploring techniques of Drawing, Watercolor, Mixed Media, and Acrylic). This class is student driven and we try to incorporate areas of interest which appeal to regular class members. We range in subject matter from drawing, to painting, to image transfers, to color theory, and the list goes on...

Exp!ore Water Media: This class varies and is designed to allow the students to explore Watercolor and Acrylic in a variety of ways. Learning about new materials and experimenting with crossing boundaries is what we do. Class ideas and techniques will be taught, instruction will be given, but students may always bring in their own work for assistance to any of my classes.
|Martha Sledge created this cool piece in Exp!ore Watermedia Class|
Exp!ore Design and Paint an Abstract: This class is based on a method taught by John Salminen AWS. We cover design fundamentals and make very interesting and beautiful abstract paintings in Watercolor, Acrylic and collage. At least 1 award winning painting has emerged from this class and most students are rewarded with paintings they love.
Arty Party Painting Parties: Paint on Wine Glasses, Mugs or Canvas
Schedule an Arty Party and choose from a selection of paintings or paint an image of your choosing during a fun 2 hr painting party with me as your teacher. We provide the supplies, you provide your own refreshments BYOB. It's a great way to have fun painting and create a memorable event with your group or family.
Exp!ore Glass on Glass Mosaic: This 4 week class exp!ores a new technique using stained glass in a modern way. It's much simpler than stained glass, and very light and luminous in it's results. You can see an example of this technique below. The class is fun and very playful...and the results are incredible!
