Classes can be structured like a session with a live model, with quick warm ups and longer poses, to prepare students with the best tools to work from life.
Learn to capture the essentials in a single sitting using a painterly approach working wet-into-wet paint.
Brooke helps simplify complex subjects with step-by-step demonstrations and a clear process that can be followed outside her classroom. Ideal for painting landscapes en plein air or painting from life in short sessions.
