Course Description

Fine Art is visual art (painting and sculpture) created for aesthetic reasons and judged primarily for its beauty. This is your opportunity to learn and grow with St. Petersburg's own, nationally known artist, painter Robert J. Simone. Robert teaches the things you need to know to create quality work and become more artistically independent. And you will learn how to bring more polished beauty to your paintings.

This course explores how to consistently bring beauty to your paintings. Emphasis will be placed on the “how to” processes of painting as well as the fundamental aspects of brushwork, beauty and design. Additional emphasis will be placed on the effective use of photo references. Representational subjects such as landscapes, seascapes, urban scenery and portrait will be explored. Oil, water soluble oil, acrylics and open acrylics are welcome.

Class meets on Mondays, beginning January 3rd, 2022 from 10AM to 2:30PM. Expect brand new easels and tables for your use. Bring your own supplies. Please bring a reference or subject to paint. Classes will feature weekly lessons/exercises, instructor demonstrations, personal instruction at your easel and more personal painting time than any other class in the Tampa Bay region.

Fees are $75 for individual classes or enjoy a bulk rate when you purchase a punch card of 4 classes for $287 (these are WADA member rates). The 4-class punch card allows you to reserve a seat in the class while retaining your tuition on days you have to miss. No other local class offers this benefit.

Adults only 18+. Serious beginners, intermediates and advanced. Oils, water soluble oils, acrylics and open acrylics welcome.

Supply list becomes available after registration.


Members: $75
