Art Class Description

Small group classes meet at a variety of unique locations on Balboa Island in Newport Beach from 9:00am-1:00pm.

Free parking is available on the adjacent side streets.  I will email you the exact meeting location via email. Please email me at to connect.

I will give a 1 hour morning demonstration on design, drawing and painting.  

I'll emphasize division of space, lines, the importance of values, color mixing and edge-work.

After my morning demonstration, I'll spend the afternoon helping each of you with your artwork at your own level.

This class is perfect for beginners through advanced artists as well as artists working in all mediums.

Payment in full is required to save your space in the class.  All class fees are non-refundable once paid unless class is cancelled.

What students say...

Kristen, thank you for the great workshop! Everyone agreed we have never had anyone give such an informative presentation. 

Right now I have to paint a large canvas for my granddaughter-to-be. My daughter wants cactus and succulents, with flowers.  I am glad I took notes and really paid attention to YOU. Hoping to get a chance to paint in one of your future workshops again soon......Debbie H

"I have taken a number of workshops, mentoring sessions and online classes and Kristen is hands-down my favorite instructor. She is not only an extremely talented artist, but an effective teacher. It is truly a gift to be able to provide valuable and meaningful advice and guidance in a positive and inspirational way. Kristen is so encouraging and can explain difficult concepts clearly and put them in the context of your individual skills as an artist. I highly recommend Kristen’s online classes and if you have the opportunity to work with her in person, don’t miss it!"......Marie

Kristen is not only a fabulous painter, but a very a highly skilled instructor. I have taken several watercolor courses from her and always am blown away by how much I didn’t know!! Her instruction has really impacted my work. She answers questions well and is very motivated to help students at all levels of experience. I appreciate her kindness and vast level of knowledge. Highly recommended! .......Jana
