All levels of ability and experience are welcome.

Each class consists of a video lesson and 3 reference images (a landscape, portrait and still life) that are emailed before the class at Morro Bay Art Center. The student can choose to paint one or all of the reference images or work from their own reference. Class time is spent painting with direction and feedback from Jason. Following the class another video will be delivered, Friday Feedback where we look at a students work and see how the lesson might be applied to make the painting even more beautiful. Each lesson/block ends with Monday Morning Inspiration (video emailed) where a master painting is examined and broken down to give the artist ideas of how the lesson was used to create that masterpiece.

The reference images are the same images for both lessons/blocks in that month. This allows the artist time to develop a painting. We ask for students to please sign up ahead of time so that the reference images and video lesson may be sent out before class time.
