Art Classes




Student work

Painting classes:

Steve has an ability to listen deeply and hear what his students are really asking for. He brings to his teaching 50 years of painting experience and a lifetime fully and deeply lived. Steve has an openness, a courage to be vulnerable, and a sense of constant awe at the deep humanness that people reveal when they create. He respects and fosters the uniqueness of his students’ creative journeys, avoiding being overly directive, and yet being constantly available to assist them whenever they flounder. (The above image is a collage of student work, several of them first paintings.)
