Registration

How do I It get started?

Beginners are welcome but please note the curriculum is intensive and it is less recreational. Students who have the ability to focus, interact well with teachers, and who very much desire the skills to draw realistically are going to enjoy and excel in this studio. I also advise that you take my basic drawing foundations  before painting . I warmly welcome students who deeply desire to see through the artists eye.


I teach the same curriculum to children and adults. This is why I only accept age 12-adult. I do not offer children's classes but do have a wait list for children. This is a professional art studio, not a classroom so adult subject matter is not censored in studio. 


For these reasons

It is not possible to register online at this time. You can download, complete, and return the registration form.


Email info@thesandiegoartloft.com and state the class, date, and times you would like.

Also please state the name, age, and level of the student.

I will follow up via email to answer your questions. You will pay at the time of registration after class.

This way, you will get a feel for the class before committing.


There are no drop ins. If you would like to try a class, I must know ahead of time to reserve your easel. After class you can enroll.
