Open Session Art Classes with Ana

Open Session art classes accomodate any style, any medium, any age and any ability level. Classes are $20 for a drop-in session and $15 each if you sign up for three classes in a month. Students get to use all the latest art materials - the cost is included in the class fee.

Art classes at the Red Bluff Art Gallery are taught by Anastasia Nelson, University of California at Davis graduate in Studio Art, with the assistance of Phil Dynan (formerly an instructor at the Roseville Art Center and the Davis Art Center). The classes are a unique mixed multi-disciplinary open studio session where lots of great ideas flow between instructor and students of all ages and backgrounds in a gallery setting.

Open studio classes are for beginners to advanced artists of all ages. Come in and learn to bring your stick figure to life, or come in and take your advanced training to a new place. Perhaps you have heard of the water-mixable oils and want to switch to a new paint but aren't sure what paints are the best for you. In class you can try them out, included in the class fee, and if you like them get a discount when you check out. And perhaps your art will reach new heights of enjoyment in the gallery surrounded by art and artist, in a warm and inviting atmosphere of relaxed positive group instruction.

If you have never drawn or painted before and are afraid to try before, now is your time, we all can enjoy creating and sharing our creations with others. Some days we all create mud puddles and giggle as we splish-splash watercolors, other days are simply masterpieces. To quote Wayne Thiebaud, "Even Dega had his C days" and we all know how great his work is from his A days. A plus-plus. These classes are a win-win, from 3 years olds to 90+ year olds, they all come to class and enjoy expanding their art comfort zone, enriching their lives for years. Make new friends, grow new skills, come in and check it out. Art all around, historic building, across from Wells Fargo Bank and Bob's Tires in the sage green building on the corner that says ART. Come in and you will find a fun group of artists to join in making a unique artistic enrichment to the world. And enjoy local and international art to inspire you to create.
