Upcoming Fine Art Classes
Fine Art Department
Instructor: Maeve Croghan
Students will be guided by Maeve to keenly observe nature as she demonstrates and instructs how to paint from your observations to create an expressive and meaningful painting.
Focusing on specific subjects in Nature, students will learn how to observe and paint these subjects and their surroundings, enriching each student’s understanding of Nature.
We then continue outdoors to our painting spot, which will offer a variety of painting subjects. Maeve will paint a demonstration painting, talking about the various elements in the Landscape and how to approach each element in your own painting.
Students then set up for the day, beginning one to two paintings per day. Maeve circulates around throughout the day, guiding and enabling each student to produce a nearly finished painting of their nature subject.
Class is open to all levels. Maeve’s helpful demeanor and many years of teaching experience is enriching for advanced to beginner students.
