Teaching is an important part of my studio practice. As a realist painter, I believe it is my duty to pass my knowledge and skill to others. It is how we will collectively bring back another grand era of realism. I teach students starting at 8 years through adult, from beginner to intermediate.

I am currently teaching the following classes & workshops:

Come learn the foundations of Oil Painting from life with artist Suzanne Lago Arthur. This workshop is geared towards the beginner painter or those at a more intermediate skill level who want to enhance their technical skills. We will focus on three pillars of technique: Shape, Value & Color to paint beautiful pumpkin paintings from life. You will walk away with one or two lovely paintings and the knowledge to be able to continue your own studio practice at home.
