I am starting a still-life oil painting class. I plan to begin in January (possibly Feb, depends). Looking for 4-5 students max to cram into small space. The class will be on a monthly tuition basis: $250 a month. Mondays and Wednesdays 9am-noon. No oil painting experience required, but some drawing skills would be good. Located in Palo Alto, California. Just off of El Camino Real. If interested, please email: david.cheifetz@gmail.com
Thanks!
