Learn about our faculty


Botanical Painting Workshop


Learn how to render botanical subjects in a realistic manner. Explore the work of the Dutch masters of still life, Impressionist florals, and contemporary botanical works. Take inspiration from Laguna Gloria’s beautiful grounds as you gain skills in painting with realism. Projects include indirect painting (layers and glazing, old master style) and quick and loose alla prima style.

ONLINE CLASSES: Tap into your creativity right from your home in an online Art School class! We're offering live, online classes in drawing, painting, ceramics, and more, taught by our wonderful Art School faculty in real time. Capacity is limited to ensure small class sizes so you can maximize your time with your instructor and your classmates. You'll learn together in community with your fellow students, with additional opportunities for one-on-one time and individual feedback from your instructor, just like in our in-person classes!
