Event details

“If you are interested in an oil painting class where you can learn as a beginner or be pushed to the next level as a seasoned artist, Francesco’s class is for you. You will see progress from the first lesson on. Mix colors like a pro or make your compositions better. It’s like a college level class only more fun.”

Francesco taught painting at University and College level before the many Art Centers, his painting class is designed for beginners to advanced students. Beginners will learn how to handle the medium and how to mix color effectively. Intermediate students will copy old masters, matching colors and brushstrokes. Advanced students will be helped integrating art history and contemporary art concepts in their personal work.
Francesco’s one on one assistance and feedback ensures beginning student’s understanding and keeps intermediate students engaged and challenged.
