About Adult Classes

Rosemarie’s mission is to guide and inspire her students to be the best artist they can by learning to draw and paint using the methods of  traditional academic realism. From there, the student is empowered and encouraged to develop their own style.

Join our fun group of artists who are improving their drawing and oil painting skills while enjoying the camaraderie of creating fabulous works of art together. Whether you are the beginner student looking for a creative distraction, or the serious artist seeking to establish painting as a profession, your art lesson will be individualized to challenge your level of ability as you learn to render a better landscape, still life or portrait. You will learn methods for seeing and correcting shapes, values, form, proportions and edges; understand and learn to see mid-tone values for shadows and lights; develop rendering and application techniques for the finished drawing and painting; and understand color theory for mixing paint as seen in nature. In the spring, all students participate to showcase their best works at The Annual Student Exhibition. During late spring, summer and early fall, additional plein air classes will be offered to students currently enrolled who are interested in landscape painting in nature’s light.

Students may work from life or photo images of landscapes, street scenes, still life, portrait, or animals — whatever is of interest as you build skills and confidence to take on more ambitious projects, or if you prefer, continue to draw and paint at a fun and relaxed pace. All students receive individual instruction tailored to their personal goals and speed.

Rosemarie Morelli Art Studio & School also instructs artists seeking a career as a professional and exhibiting artist. Those students may enjoy a more traditional, rigorous academic training in impressionism and classical realism.
