SPRING SESSION CLASSES are Beginning

You are encouraged to consider signing up for the Spring, 2011 session of STUDIO SCHOOL classes.   The idea for the school originated when Guinever was teaching an on location course in drawing in Paris in 1992.

The classes are designed to provide education and training in art for adults (ages 16 and up).  It's the school's goal to provide the student with the experience of being an artist by working in a true artist's studio and  sometimes working on site.   Much emphasis is placed on learning various artists' approaches and techniques. Here are a list of Courses:

Please call Guinever at 502-895-0915 or email her at guineverlee@yahoo.com for more information or to make arrangements to participate in the classes.
