Art School 99 live online classes are taught via Zoom. Students have the opportunity to interact with the instructor and other participants, watch live demos and receive feedback and instruction. You will have access to a class chat forum where you can share work, comment and ask questions. Once you’ve enrolled, you’ll receive instructions about how to access the class.

To take this class, you need a microphone and camera enabled computer OR an IPad /smart tablet OR a smart phone (android or IOS) and a strong internet connection.


In this classes delve into the lessons of some of the world’s renowned contemporary painting masters, explore their tools and techniques, their ways of looking, translating and notating, and their attitudes toward what makes a painting. Compare one artist to another and learn from their differences. Put work into your own project, build an archive to work from.


We will begin with discussions of the works of many of the great artists of the present and relatively recent past. Participants will look at and analyze their lessons and discover how to apply these lessons to their own artwork. I will share examples  to show how these masters have influenced my personal work through their critical eye, their  thoughts, and their hand.  In addition to making quick transcriptions of the works of these masters, we will do our best to absorb their insights into our own work.
