Classes are set up by subject matter: still life, landscape or portrait painting. Anyone at any level is welcome to join the class. I keep class sizes small (less than 8 people) so each person gets a lot of one-on-one attention. Each class set is 10 – 12 hours of instruction time, whether it be a weekend workshop style, or regular classes, and has specific goals to learn.

I teach weekly out of my studio in Kelowna, BC with my studio-mate Riker, a very enthusiastic Boston Terrier. Occasionally I will offer weekend workshops around Kelowna.

If you would like a current listing of classes or would like to join classes please email Shelley at blueapplestudio@shaw.ca. To find out a bit more about my portrait classes check out this video here.
