New Studio, New Classes and Workshops

As many of you know, I currently work in a very tiny studio, which I affectionately call my "art pod". While it's an ideal workspace for still life, it's a bit tight for students or models, so I have known that eventually I would need to upgrade.

Well, I am excited to finally announce that after months of searching, I have found my new space: a gorgeous 500 square foot studio with north light in the heart of the Mission neighborhood of San Francisco.

It's in a wonderful old warehouse with hardwood floors, enormous windows, and one of those fabulous old-fashioned radiators. I am currently setting it up for ideal classical study, with a dark neutral wall color and thick draperies to control the light.

Beginning in January I will be offering Classical Realism drawing and painting classes and workshops in the new studio. Please visit my updated Teaching page for more information and to register!

Congratulations! A proper studio at last! And new classes out the wazoo! That is so wonderful.

And one of the many fun parts is picking out background fabrics and furniture/props for the models to use.

Thanks Spatula!!!! I have started a little file of pictures of 19th century studios and there's a lot of neat ideas....

So exciting!! Having been in your pod, I know this will be a HUGE difference. Best of luck getting it all set up!
