I've been drawing forever, but have always wanted to try my hand at painting – I just don't know anything about techniques and wanted a space to explore and learn the basics. This class is just what I was looking for! It has a relaxed, not-too-structured vibe because the class is quite small (I've taken it twice now and have been one of 3 students both times). If you're looking for something super rigorous this may not be it, but if you're looking to work on your skills in a low-pressure environment with a teacher who will personalize assignments to you, you won't be disappointed :) Zach is a wonderful artist and encouraging teacher with an encyclopedic knowledge of both art history and the more contemporary scene.

Eric was a really great instructor. Really enjoyed the workshop. Eric was extremely knowledgeable, but also laid back and very friendly- a nice combination for a teacher. I think the class should be no more than 6 people or there should be a larger area to work in. Wish there were a workshop to work on a little larger format as an intermediate step.
