Art Classes – Fall 2013

Red Daylilies

Fall Schedule 2013

Dear Continuing or Prospective Student:

[twocol_one]

Had a great response and a wonderful time teaching the two Albany Spring/Summer Classes, Painting/ Drawing – Acrylics and Painting/Drawing – Watercolor.   Thanks to all who were able to participate! I plan to continue these two classes for the Fall with new material for any continuing students.

As usual, anyone who is a returning student gets or who recruits a student to a class gets a free gift.  Advanced students or students who have taken previous classes with me can work independently in their choice of media in any class with individual help. note: you do not have to be a “senior” to sign up for these classes.

If you are interested in one of these upcoming classes, please register as soon as you can since classes must meet minimum enrollment in order to be held.  Registration is  sometimes possible at the class but only if enough students have  registered before class start date.

Listed below are course descriptions for the Fall  classes I am scheduled to teach and the class schedules in the following locations: City of Albany – Recreation and Community Services Department Pleasant Hill Education Center – Mt. Diablo Adult Education Program.
