Art Lessons


If you have painting experience

or have never tried acrylics 

but want to learn this is the time.

 Jim is able to teach his unique painting techniques to all artists regardless of their experience. 

Upon your first lesson you will discuss where you are as an artist. Bring a few examples of your

work and Jim will adjust

his lessons to suit your skill level.

You will follow all the beginners requirements but proceed at a more rapid rate.

You can have one lesson


as many as

you like.


Any student that considers themselves a beginner should

have a working knowledge of

basic drawing, composition, perspective light, shadow

and mixing of colors.

Jim achieves realistic renderings

by using photographs of

his subject matter.  All students should come to the first class

with a clear, well composed

photo of the subject

they wish to paint.

Private Art Lessons

"For the student that is serious about painting"

Jim paints on masonite using acrylic paints.  Students will be shown how to choose masonite boards and prepare their own using gesso


If you are an accomplished artist

but need to refine your painting skills or are in need of instruction

to evoke a certain feeling through your painting, Jim can help you achieve that goal.  

Call and speak with Jim to

determine what you need.

It might only take one or two

lessons to achieve your goal.  

He will be glad to help

you succeed.
