“Painting Momentum”

Surround yourself with ideas, ambient light, and your painting tools! Whether you’re a beginner or hold an MFA, we take a fresh look together at fundamentals. My style is to offer you constant support at your easels, where you are painting what you love.

Are you a brand-new artist? Are you embarking on a new painting or revisiting a piece? Whether abstract or representational, work your individual style in oils or acrylics. Try fresh ideas. Skirt common pitfalls in this convivial class.

I intend to help you develop a path with good sequencing in the painting process. I like to simplify new and age-old painting concepts with short demonstrations and handouts and a bit of levity. Typically I offer information on form, light, composition, values, atmospheric perspective, color mixing, media, etc. I am happy to oblige when painters request a special focus or demo.

Connect the dots of composition, color partnering, and technique that fit your style. Paint using sources you choose, preferably photographic, and benefit from sharing your process with others. We all help each other.

Having been a full-time artist for decades with a history of successful custom paintings for clients, I enjoy sharing what I love. Being a fine arts instructor for more than eleven years right here, I feel proud of my students’ growth. Our Tuesday studio is a warm place—we have fun and we uplift each other. All celebrate in the final class with a group showing of finished work and pieces in progress.

I’ve exhibited in the U.S. and Italy, galleries, museum shows, etc. I show both abstract and representational art, and I paint on silk. See my pieces in Gateway and Creekside and at annageorgeartist.com and at annageorgeonline.com. Ask about news on an upcoming show of my work nearby.
