After 30 years in corporate and consulting life, I finally got to do what Ive always wanted to do - become an artist. I have been taking oil painting classes here for the past 4 years and have loved every minute of it.There is a class for everyone at every level - beginner to professional. Ive focused on plein air painting but have added studio painting to my list in order to better see color. Painting is like golf - very frustrating at times but also very rewarding if one sticks with it and has patience. BSSS is unique in offering professional instruction for those of us who want to learn quickly and efficiently. I highly recommend this school to anyone who wants to start or resume their art.
