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 home studio is also really a great place to come and play in the paint. I offer Open Studio Sessions and occasionally more structured classes that are tailored to individual projects. Sometimes my students who study with me elsewhere will come to my personal studio for extra time. Everyone who joins me is dedicated to expressing their creativity and learning a bit more about art. I have 2 governing rules in my classes: "Don't be scaird!" and "What happens in art class STAYS in art class!" We have fun while learning and exploring.

In addition to the 2 locations I just mentioned, I also teach for OLLI (Osher Lifelong Learning Institute) here in Myrtle Beach and I have taught classes for local groups in their clubhouses or facilities.
Here are some of the classes I offer:
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.

Exp!ore Design and 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: I have recently developed this 4 week class to teach about 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!
I am planning future classes for this spring in Watercolor, and Painting on the Fly- Painting Outdoors or While you Travel.
Look at my previous blog post for a description of a future traveling art class I will offer in TUSCANY! The dates are Sept 27-Oct 4, 2014.
Contact me if you'd like to study with me in any of these ways...I have a number of ongoing classes and teach at various locations...one may be near you!
