My rates are pretty straightforward….$35. an hour, with a three hour minimum.
I have traveled to the homes of students for monthly or weekly lessons and some students have preferred to come to my studio on Pine Lake (exit 30 off i 185). Either way, I usually begin by viewing some of the student’s drawings or paintings, answering any questions they may have, listening to the student talk about their experience and their goals.Usually, the goal is to produce original paintings.
Most one day workshops are fun and you learn a lot about mixing color and techniques. However, if your goal is to create your own original art some day, these classes won’t take you all the way. No matter how good you are at copying another artist’s work, it isn’t yours. To make the leap from copyist to artist you will need to learn about composition If being a watercolor artist is your goal, work on your drawing skills, learn the right way to use photographic references, learn how to take an idea for a painting through the rigors of compositional decisions based on sound design principles. It is tremendously satisfying to produce an “original” painting. An image created by you. One of a kind; original. How ultimately exciting!
