As of today, Tuesday,  August 18, I am on my summer break.  I had hip replacement surgery in mid-July, and I am taking the month of August off to recover and manage a daily routine of walking my dogs, painting, and swimming.  LIFE IS GOOD!! I am also preparing a few paintings for entry in the MAA Kensington Labor Day weekend art show.  The following is my current planned schedule of classes for the Fall of 2015.


This Fall 2015, I will be teaching a number of different classes for Holiday Park Senior Center (HPSC), Montgomery College Workforce Development Continuing Education (MC WDCE), and the Montgomery County Public Libraries (MCPL). I will no longer be teaching classes for the Rossmore Art Guild (RAG) at Leisure World.  The following are the classes that I am teaching.

  • Advanced Watercolor for HPSC, Tuesday mornings (10am to 12:30pm) at the Holiday Park Senior Center (HPSC), starting September 8th and ending December 15th  (fourteen sessions skipping Nov. 24th). Call HPSC 240-777-4999 to register.

  • I will likely be teaching Basic Drawing and Watercolor Techniques 1 for the Montgomery County Public Libraries seniors programs.  At the moment we have discussed setting up four different classes at four different libraries, with specific locations and dates still TBD.  I will update this page once these times and places are finalized.  Both classes offered are basic classes for beginners with all drawing or painting supplies provided… just show up!  For more information or to register, call (240-773-9460); or visit the specific library; or visit the MCPL website.
