Independent Study - Virtual Program
The course is designed for students who would like to develop body of paintings and their own style with help of a professional artist. The instructor is there as a guide to discuss your intentions and to push you gently to help you proceed in your own unique artistic journey.
There will be a critique each class to discuss what has been accomplished that day. In the end of course students will be able to develop a personal artistic direction.
*This program requires a minimum of seven (7) registered participants.

Registration for Schwartz/Reisman Centre programs closes one week before the start date of a course. For some classes we accept registrations until the program has reached 50% of its classes.
We recommend registering as early as possible, as many programs have limited space, and other programs depend upon a certain enrollment number to ensure they will run. Your place in a program can only be guaranteed when accompanied by payment.
