Hello,

I have finally gotten around, years later, to putting a SHOP back on my webite. It's been all about healing my hands so I can be on the computer more, but not too much. And teaching has been my main focus and joy for years now. My students and their blossoming talent continue to inspire me.

So thank you for visiting, and hope you enjoy the many art tips in my BLOG, and paintings in my SHOP and just feel blessed while you hang around awhile.

MAY THEME: Shapes, Shadows & Silverware

Thursday, April 28, 2022

This should be fun...oh yeah.

We will start with some drawing.....silverware -------- surprisingly tricky and alluring and addictive! 

I will teach a few photography ideas to make some really unusual shapes, shadows and reflections.

Then we will do some value paintings to get a good LOOK at all those fascinating reflective shapes and place them where they belong.

And of course Color and Composition will play a big role, don't they always?

This painting was created years ago and sits atop my spice shelf. See that wonky iced tea spoon? 
Sorry for glare. 



I am imagining that by weeks 3 & 4 we will be creating some interesting Still Lifes that will have a spoon, fork or knife of some sort sneaking into the storyline. 

Use whatever medium you are most into at moment and mixing it up is always welcome.....the only thing required in these classes is that you free yourself up to experiment, and NOT compare yourself with any other artist -- the focus has to be Painting Like YOU!  Who else could you paint like, right?

Enjoying and admiring others artwork is fine, but always come back to painting Like YOU. That's what I continually encourage.




Our 4 weeks of classes this month are as follows, then we will take off week of Memorial Day weekend. But remember, the recordings are always there even if you have to miss a non-vacation week. No worries!



Care to join us for a month of classes and try us out? More info.

I have been taking art classes from Joanie Springer for at least 5 years now.  She creates a safe and fun space for teaching art.  She is a self taught artist with tons of knowledge.  She constantly shares new and different ideas on how to paint and plays with all different mediums with great enthusiasm and delight.  She is very knowledgeable about techy "stuff" and is always willing to help us folks who are new at the tech world.  I really can't say enough good things about Joanie.  She is a willing, fun and creative teacher who clearly loves what she does.  She's a gem! ~ Denise B






Be Creative. It's Good for the Soul!
