Group Art Instruction for your Organization

I enjoy the dynamics of group art instruction with a class size up to 20 students. This allows me to give everyone individual attention during the workshop, whether we meet in person or on Zoom*.

With more than 30 years of design experience and extensive knowledge in painting, I aim to deliver a relaxed and humorous teaching style, emphasizing on simple and clear explanations. My sessions guarantee that everyone will learn something and some may even exceed their expectations. :)

Contact me directly for my current rate. It is best to plan two or three months in advance but it is still worth contacting me regarding my schedule if you want to book something sooner.

The majority of my workshops run two days but I am interested in longer three or five-day workshop schedules as well.

I customize each workshop based on your group’s preferences. I consistently include teachings on design & composition, shape, value, temperature, and edges. All with an emphasis on how you can incorporate these concepts into your artwork, regardless of your personal style.

There are daily demos, handouts and one-on-one critiques.

Michael has been providing instruction to the members of our club since 2012. We have always been able to rely on him to come teach at least one group of 10 session classes every year for up to 18 participant artists.

He is qualified to teach in either oils or acrylics, whatever the group requests. Knowledgeable, entertaining and enjoyable, Michael totally engages all of us each week in whatever adventure he decides to take us. He is always positive in his approach and takes time to work with each participant individually during each class time, sensitive to all levels of ability and self-confidence.

I can say without hesitation that we all truly look forward to each time he is coming to teach.
