I'm happy to announce that I will be offering my Painting by Heart class once again in Studio CRESCENDOh this April! This is a one-day class offered on April 26th and 28th (EDIT! The classes will be April 27th and 28th) ... once on a weekend and once on a weekday. Enrollment is NOW open here.

Some answers to questions that I've been getting about this class:

Q: I've taken Painting by Heart before. Can I take it again?
A: Yes. There are several people who have taken it again and been able to digest and relearn important lessons.

Q: Can I sign up for both days?
A: For sure. It will be the same material but again, you are welcome to take it both days to better digest all of the information and just get quicker into your groove and to do more back-and-forth feedback with me as you desire.

Q: Seems like every time, the content slightly changes. Is that correct?
A: Inevitably so. I try to keep the same skeletal structure but as I continue to grow and evolve and discover, I do bring in new knowledge into class. :)

Q: Will you offer it again this year?
A: I plan on offering this class in Studio CRESCENDOh no less than 4 times a year.

Q: Will you ever offer this as a 2-day class and cover more info?
A: Maybe.

Q: Will you ever offer this as an online class?
A: Probably. But it won't be for a long while.

ALSO ...

There are a few opportunities that are now open for those who would like to paint in the company of other painters in The Painting Studio ... a great way to learn and share with like-minded painters. :) Enrollment for The Painting Studio is NOW open here.
