This program is intended for Artists of ANY level who are looking for intensive study and directed exchange with a professional artist in an encouraging environment. Students will be invited to share with the instructor their intentions, hopes, and expectations for guidance in the making of their own work. During this exchange, the student determines what most interests and inspires them.

This tutorial-based learning will consist early on of conversations leading to both parties better understanding the student’s goals for their unique artistic practice and viewpoint. Sessions will be devoted to reviewing and critiquing, analyzing various possibilities going forward, and assignments that will assist the student’s rapid development. There will also be demonstrations and hands-on exercises.

This class will be conducted live on Zoom. Participants will receive an email from Peters Valley at least 48 hours prior that includes a link and a password. Only registered participants will be admitted.
