Gift yourself (or someone else!) an informative, fun-filled, two-hour acrylic painting session with Laguna Beach award-winning artist Carole Boller. In each class, Carole will lead you step-by step through the process of creating stunning paintings, which will allow you to become a more successful, knowledgeable, and confident painter. The class is structured so that it can be taken as a ‘one-off’ or as a set of four for a reduced price. The fee includes canvas, paint, professional instruction, excellent brushes and an easel. No experience is necessary, just a desire to learn and have fun!
Week 1 (January 28th) UMBRELLA: Well-begun is half done! In this class you will learn why drawing techniques with your brush are important in conceptualizing the compositional space in painting.
Week 2 (February 4th) EARLY MORNING SEASCAPE: In this session, Carole will focus on color and value, two of the elements of design that are fundamental aspects of any visual design.
Week 3 (March 4th) SEASCAPE: Shape, form and line will be the center of your attention in this class. Placed correctly, these elements of design can offer brilliant paintings.
Week 4 (March 11th) FLOWER: Make it better with a great critique! Constructive criticism and feedback can truly help you grow as an artist. Here you’ll practice some enjoyable self-critiques whilst creating a stunning flower painting!

Meet the Teacher
Transformation is at the heart of Boller’s paintings. Each time she paints she approaches the canvas without baggage. Her concept for the piece begins without a preconceived attachment to what “should be” and lets the work evolve and communicate through shadows and color. Intrigued by light, she relies on the sensitivity of her eye and clarity of her memory to keep the scene alive as she intuitively reaches for opaque pigments that transform into translucent atmosphere when juxtaposed on canvas. When looking at one of her paintings, one partakes in the pleasure she surely felt in achieving her goal, and thus is also transformed by her vision. “Color is my day long obsession and joy. It washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.”
