The Studio School Winter Newsletter
(Opens in new Window or Tab)
During the lockdown, I was fortunate to be enrolled in a class with Vera Dickerson at the Studio School. Vera held the class online through e-mail. She would demonstrate a painting by providing step by step photos and instructions. We were given insight into her planning, thought process, color choices, etc. Then we could choose to use the same technique for our own painting … or not.
When we completed a painting, we sent a photo of it to Vera for critique. Vera copied our photo and used “markers” on the computer to add little bits of color, making suggestions for ways to make the composition more e ective. It was wonderful! I learned so much from this!!! Vera’s comments were always very positive. She really knows how to make a painting sing! During the seven-week class, Vera critiqued 88 paintings!
At the end of the class, Vera o ered us an extended critique class for four more weeks. So I’m still busy painting!
To Our Students, Supporters, and Art Lovers
During this uncertain period, non-profits are working hard to remain financially viable, while our doors are closed. The Studio School has operated for thirty years and provided art instruction to thousands of students of all ages. Our faculty is comprised of professional, working artists who bring knowledge, skill, and enthusiasm to their students. We love our students and look forward to seeing them in one of the exciting classes we are eager to start, as soon as the coronavirus is behind us.

As many of you are aware, Virginia is a state adhering to the social distancing policies and folks have been asked to shelter in place.
Due to this Jane has been working with Joan to consider a September date for the workshop.
If you have questions, please contact Jane.
Thank you for your support!
