Live Online learning during Covid19

We are committed to helping our students continue learning during this trying time. We will offer live group and private classes through the Zoom. Visit Zoom.us/join to find and download the app. Just like an in-person class, students will be able to follow along any demonstrations or tutorials, ask questions and get feedback from others and the instructor.

I am donating to The Art Studio families impacted by the recent shutdown. If you and/or a friend are facing financial hardship and our online art class can help, please call the number below. We can get through this together, contact Denise at 714-787-8020.

Plein Air Painting – Outdoor class

Let’s go outdoors and practice social distance painting! I’ve been plein air painting for years and invite students to come out and paint. If you want to learn, I will demonstrate from afar, how to pick a spot, find a motif, what to look for, how to simplify, how to set up and from there it’s all magic.

My favorite spots are Central Park, Bolsa Chica Bluffs, Dog Beach but I can venture to other places.
Times | Wednesday and Friday, 9-11 am
Tuition | $35
