Exploring Creativity at CESG

Providing classes for people who want to explore their creative side is a joy!

Sharing all I can of what I have learned about fine art painting with students of all levels of experience is a rewarding time.  Hopefully for all involved!  The learning experience never ends and there is no better place than spending time in your own creative mind.

Oil Painting Workshops Can Be Very Rewarding

A good fine art instructor can provide just the right information and stimulation to inspire new ways to look at the world and new ways to create fine works of art. 

A periodic workshop of a day or several days is suggested at all stages of an artist's development.

Sadowski Workshop, January 2015 is a good example of a challenging and rewarding experience.

Learning to paint flowers in the manner of the Old Masters. Working from life is best to capture the essence of the subject.

2015 CESG Classes Will Begin Soon!

January 2015 and Oil Painting Classes will begin soon!

Before they do, I'm taking some easel time to create a palette knife painting of one of Florida's beautiful wading birds, a roseate spoonbill.

This painting was a commission, now hanging in a beautiful Florida home.
