We wanted to remind everyone that the Surface and Space class, taught by Steve Goodman, is continuing June 2nd and June 9th from 10 AM – 2 PM. If you are planning to take part it you will need to reserve a spot now as it is almost full. Just contact us at 802.860.4972 or email us at Thank you!

This four-week class, designed for novice to intermediate artists, will begin with the basics of representational painting and lead the participant to more advanced techniques. The emphasis will be on studio work, painting still life from direct observation and using photographs as reference material for landscapes.

We will start with an introduction to the fundamentals of representational painting: strong drawing skills, composition, color, value, and edges, and then advance to working in a loose, painterly style, paying special attention to expressive brushwork while maintaining descriptive detail. We’ll also explore the interplay between the surface of a painting and the representational space depicted. The end result will be a deeper understanding of your own visual language within the context of representational painting.

This workshop will consist of demos, short exercises, gentle group critiques, and plenty of free time to paint with personal attention from the instructor.


Dates & time: Mondays, May 12th, May 19th, (No May 26th), June 2 and June 9th from 10 AM – 2 PM (Four – 4 hour days off Memorial Day, May 26th)

Registration fee: $150
