Charles Browning Zoom Art Workshops April/May 2021     NEW 2 month series

Spur your creativity! The best time to make art is NOW!

Art lifts our spirits and clears away stress and worry. I can work with you regardless of your experience or skill level.

I hold a BFA in Drawing and Illustration from the California College of the Arts and an MFA in Studio Art (Painting) from New York University. I have shown in solo and group shows in galleries nationally. For the last 14+ years I’ve taught at the University of the Arts, Philadelphia.

Workshops will run with two or more students with a cap at ten.

All workshops are 8 class series for $200 except as noted. Payment by check or PayPal. Students supply their own materials. A suggested materials list will be sent prior to the workshop. If you’ve never painted at home, I’ll meet with you for free in advance to help with material choices and set-up.

Private individually designed Zoom sessions are also available for $50/hour.
