Intermediate and Advanced Painting Class with Robert Richert


Learn from one of the best!The Chuck Jones Center for Creativity is now hosting Intermediate and Advanced painting classes for adults previously experienced in acrylic or oil painting. Students will work with our talented Teaching Artist Robert A. Richert, who is a realist painter. Robert earned a BA degree in illustration and biomedical art at Cal-State, Long Beach. He has been a professional artist for 33 years and his paintings hang in fine art galleries around the country. During his early career Robert specialized in wildlife subjects. In 1982 he won the California Duck Stamp contest and in 2002 he was awarded the Connecticut Duck Stamp.  Today Robert specializes in acrylic paintings of California seascapes and landscapes, and several have sold for over five figures.

For the first class, please bring 3-5 pieces of your artwork or images from your portfolio. The actual artwork is preferred. The process will begin with a 30 minute consultation. Robert will evaluate your skill level and understanding about the fundamentals of painting. Fundamentals include: color theory, composition, perspective, light and form, structure and space, drawing skills, brush strokes, and more. This will allow Robert to teach around your established skill set and provide you with constructive, positive feedback. During classes students are allowed the option to begin a brand new piece or bring a painting in progress.

Take advantage of the opportunity to further hone your paintings skills and build greater confidence in your abilities under the tutelage of a professional!
