Let’s paint “Happy Trees” and various types of water as we learn more techniques about painting "light"! This art course is specifically designed to combine the style of the “Wet-on-Wet” oil painting techniques with that of "the painting of light." It will not only enhance skills but also bring out imagination and self-confidence in your skills.

This course is designed for the beginner novice and the continuing oil painting student. Each student will progress at his or her own pace.

Here you will study a “wet-on-wet” technique using a variety of brushes and palette knife in order to create your works of art! Those students returning will also learn a more in depth study of light, perspective and technique as it applies to creating a more dramatic effect in your composition.


This course covers basic painting techniques with an emphasis on contemporary applications of the oil paint medium and solvents. The objective of this course is to provide students with the skills necessary to create paintings by using knowledge of pictorial composition and knowledge of materials, tools and techniques used in these styles of oil painting.

Because each student moves at his or her own pace, this course is great for the beginner novice and the continuing student of oil painting.

This 8 week course, 16 classes in total (8 painting instruction and 8 FREE practice sessions) provides the basics through an engaging introduction and continuation to oil painting. Topics include the use of composition, the proper use of a color palette, texture, form and value, perspective plains and the dramatic use of light through landscape painting as well as understanding various paint brushes, their uses and proper care. By the end of the course, new students will have a basic understanding of these concepts and some of the basic tools used to accomplish their painting goals. Continuing students will have a more in depth understanding and practice of these concepts on an intermediate to advanced level.

Maxie Makay Method

Stage I:  My No Fear Zone

In this stage, you will learn and practice a variety of basic techniques. When you learned how to read and write, you had to start with the alphabet, right? Painting is no different.

Stage II:  I Think I Can!

In this stage, you will continue to practice the basic techniques previously learned while beginning to learn how to “See beyond your fingertips and beyond the paint.” In this stage it’s hard to contain your excitement as you learn techniques for converting your emotions and feelings into your very own personal masterpiece.

Stage III:  I’ve Got It Now!

In this stage, your personal style begins to emerge as the paint you apply to the canvas becomes your very own personal partner. Given your previous practice and knowledge, you will learn how to interpret your paints color and stroke techniques to see into the future. At this stage you will learn techniques to teach you how to let the paint you have previously applied to the canvas alter your own painting to create a personal story all your own! As you become one with your paint, you and your partner create your very own destiny. All of your masterpieces become unique to you. It is here you truly begin to develop your own personal style.
