Drawing & Painting with Doug: Openings Now- Year round
School-Aged, Preteens, Teens, Young Adults, Adults
Art Class Description
My approach to teaching artists is to build confidence through weekly practice with an emphasis on the seemingly infinite forms of self expression. Students spend the majority of class time drawing and painting. In the course of five weeks, we touch on subjects such as perspective, composition, color theory, and realism.
Students range in age from 7 to 18 years with all skill levels. Adults are welcome too.
I provide basic art supplies for in-class work. In addition, I would suggest buying a personal Pentel brush pen and Windsor Newton watercolors. Classes take place on Sunday mornings from 10:30 a.m. to 11:45 a.m. classes run throughout the year. A series of five consecutive classes costs $125.00, payable on the first class with cash or check. If a student misses a class, a make-up class can be arranged.
Enrollment is limited. Please contact me as soon as possible so that I can develop a class list. Sliding scale options are available upon request. Masks will be worn indoors. If you have any questions, please give me a call. Phone: (510) 548-7119
Studio Address: 1715 Ward St., Berkeley, CA 94703 (Go through the gray gate all the way to the back of the building. It is a duplex, so please pass the first door and continue walking until you see the blue door.)
Classes available all year 10:30 a.m. to 11:45 a.m. Sundays
I am a Bay Area artist who has specialized in poster design for over 40 years.

I have taught at UC Davis, California College of the Arts, and New College of California. I have also worked with children and young adults in the Richmond, Oakland, and Berkeley public schools.
