This is an all levels in person class. This workshop will provide an opportunity to work on independent projects in acrylic or oil. The intention of this class is to create a space for artistic learning, showing by example in real time the practice and thought process of being an artist, creating a IRL group space to share and talk about art while offering advice on materials, technique, and subject matter. As an instructor, Cole is here to help students address artist blocks, and model how to create time and space for a nourishing art practice.

Please note: This is not an introductory course, if you are new to painting consider signing up for Introduction to painting. If you have experience with painting in oils or acrylics and would like to join this class without taking an Introduction course? Email Cole at

About the instructor: Cole is a painter and visual artist based in Portland Oregon. Nature is the biggest influence in Cole’s art especially now that natural disasters are ever increasing with climate change. Making observations, interpretations, and communicating the forms of nature that he thinks should be preserved and cherished is his goal. He wants to create excitement about preservation through visual interest by bringing the feelings and emotions associated in nature. Cole studied illustration at the Academy of Art in San Francisco and has a Bachelors of Arts in Art History from Portland State University.
