Treat yourself to instruction in watercolor ~ something you know you've always wanted to do. Gene's brand new students, without exception, amaze themselves with their artistic creations. Normal charge is $30 per month. For NEW students only the tuition will be $25 for your first month of instruction. Thereafter tuition will be $30 per month.
Classes meet once a week at the Host House at the Josephine County Fairgrounds, which is located behind the Flower Building, near the Fairgrounds entrance. We love this charming old house. It lends a comfortable touch to our very enjoyable classes. There is plenty of parking and finally NO LONG STAIRWAY, which has been a hindrance to many students in the past. Efficient heating and air conditioning keep the room comfortable all year long. Feel free to stop by during class times to say hello.
Classes are taught by Gene Drake - world renowned sculptor, and watercolor artist. Unbelievably low price?? Yes!! Gene teaches solely for the love of art and to share his gift with students who appreciate true talent. Wide variety of subjects, including wildlife, local landscapes, seascapes, pets, portraits, florals, old barns, seasonal subjects, etc.
Gene welcomes all levels, from brand new beginner to seasoned advanced student. Friendly relaxed encouraging atmosphere - snacks, and fresh baked goods nearly every week. Well lit room with big roomy tables. . Gene encourages his students to enter local and outlying competitions, and they win far more than their share of ribbons and recognition! Gene's students won 19 (nineteen) ribbons in the Fine Arts division at the 2019 Josephine County Fair this summer, for their watercolor paintings. Gene's students have won both Best of Show and Best of Class in recent years.
