I have taught life painting and landscape painting at the New Orleans Academy of Fine Art (www.noafa.com) since 1994 and teach workshops occasionally.
I am able to schedule private instruction for landscape painting students at other times than when I teach at the academy. Private instruction for one student accompanying me on a painting trip will cost $70 for a three hour session. For multiple students the fee will be $35 per student.
I am interested in starting a class in New Orleans in the style of the Art Student's League of New York where serious art students will work several days each week with me in attendance once per week providing critique and heavy demonstration. This will lend itself well to plein air landscape painting since there is no overhead cost for a studio and no end of beautiful sites to paint in New Orleans. I envision the group of students moving around to different locations in the city, staying two or three weeks at each location, setting up their easels in close proximity to each other. On the day that I attend, all students will follow me from one easel to another so that everyone benefits from the demonstration and critique that I do for each individual. To lower the tuition for all students, one of the more experienced students would be the monitor responsible for coordinating the class and logistics in exchange for free tuition.
If you are interested in instruction like this or have some thoughts on the matter, or are interested in small group private instruction, e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
My most recent workshop was for portrait painting through the St Charles Art Guild, January 13,14, and 15, 2011.
