Class Instruction in Alamosa, Colorado

Coni teaches year around adult Painting classes through the Alamosa Family Recreation Center. 

Classes are offered in 8 week Sessions, beginning in January. 

Class meetings always address foundational painting skills such as design and composition, color mixing, and brush work,  - and lessons get us painting landscape, portrait, animals, and still life.

Classes are not consecutive but continuous in nature; students at all levels work together, and beginners are encouraged.  Advanced painters improve while new students jump in with out missing out on basics.

In the Summer and Fall, all classes go out to paint en plein air in and around Alamosa.

Classes meet Tuesday Evenings from 6:30 - 9:30 pm and
