CONTEMPORARY PAINTING – PERSONAL COACHING –
PAINT IN OIL OR ACRYLIC
1 hour individualized coaching and critique sessions.
$45 per session, minimum 4 sessions, $180 total.
Coaching sessions in Aaron’s studio in the Scott’s Addition area of Richmond.

Learn basic techniques about seeing, breaking down a scene into manageable elements, and make a successful painting using what you learn about light, composition, color selection and mixing, and mark making.

Then go farther…learn more about how to delve deep into yourself to come up with personal, original ideas, and develop those ideas into a complete visual statement, using a logical process, in these personalized tutoring sessions.

All levels welcome: beginners to advanced painters.

Each artist is at a different point in their development. Therefore, any coaching or advice needs to take into account the experiences and background of the individual artist. Some people need or want to focus on technique, others want to learn more about ideas and personal motifs. And everyone needs individual, custom feedback that promotes growth and progress within the framework of a “safe space”, where the only criteria is a positive learning experience.

Students may focus on representational or more abstract painting.
