Watercolor and Oil Painting Classes in Boise Idaho

Boise Painting Classes and Art Classes. Students will learn basic techniques such as using color and value to create depth. Additionally, we learn how to see with an artist’s eye and capture what we see on the canvas. I teach anyone who has the desire to learn the art of painting. Classes are kept small to ensure individualized attention and instruction. My classes are “skills-oriented” and not “project-oriented” so my methods are particularly well suited for students who want an arts curriculum that goes beyond crafts. My classes are best for students age 14 to adult; however, accommodations may be made for gifted and/or mature students.
