studying under the masters online class

It's pretty rare to find me copying art- part of my creative practice is typically keeping my blinders on and not looking at other artists- but I'm teaching for Jeanne Oliver's online class Studying Under the Masters- a 6 week course where 6 talented instructors are sharing the life, history, techniques and work of their favorite artists. I'm teaching all about Jean-Michel Basquiat. I will be talking about how discovering the work of Basquiat when I was a 21 year old art major changed my life forever. I will be teaching and painting in his style, even replicating one of his paintings and sharing how I've applied his inspiration to my own work!

So if you are interesting in learning about neo-expressionism and early postmodern painting or are looking for a really unique class, you can follow the link below to sign up!


There is a lost art of studying the works of others to find your own style. All of the "masters" were first apprentices. The apprentice sat beside the "masters", listening to their process, paintbrush in hand, mixing paint, creating strokes that told a story, and stirred their creative spirit.

Have you ever taken an online course, gone to a retreat, purchased an art technique book and were taught an artist's techniques and mediums?  Have you ever been worried about what is your style and what is "their" style?  Have you ever been afraid to create art that was inspired by another artist?  This course is for you!

Join six artists as we become the “apprentice”. Through discussion and technique videos, each artist will share their week with a “master”. You’ll learn who their “master” artist studied under, who influenced their work and what techniques and mediums they used.

An integral part of the artistic process was to “copy” the master artist.  In this course, you will watch as these artists practice using the works of another artist. They will share what techniques they learned and what they learned about their own creative process.  You will then learn as they create art in their own style incorporating the techniques and/or medium of their chosen artist.
