JJ is excited to offer this new, rather experimental, class with you - bringing his years of experience as an artist and instructor to you - offering flexible, targeted guidance and help to each individual. JJ looks forward to sharing his wisdom and insights stemming from his eastern cultural background and his deep knowledge of western art. Please note: this class is focused on those artists working in the realm of representational art in its varying forms.

JJ's hope for each artist is that you will:

  • Find inspiration - within yourself and from each other

  • Get energized 

  • Learn and grow personally

  • Set some goals

  • Develop healthy habits

  • Experience encouraging camaraderie

You will work at your own pace & level in your chosen medium, on your own project(s)

Simply bring your materials, your work, your own unique style and your desire to grow.

In his open and welcoming studio in downtown Cary, JJ invites you to take a 6 week journey as an independent study, exploring your creative process in a safe and stimulating environment with other artists under his  personalized guidance and instruction. With his patient, encouraging yet straightforward mentoring, JJ will help you expand your vision of your art, see more clearly, and simplify your approach to your work. 


As he works with you, respectful of your goals and unique style, JJ will offer advice and insights that deepen and challenge your thinking.  JJ will give you personalized critiques on your work during each session not only to help you strengthen your skills and techniques, but also to help you grow in confidence as an artist - his main goal. 


Participants may gather at the beginning of each session for a brief discussion or Q&A with JJ before diving into individual painting time while JJ circulates. Participants will be encouraged to circulate and collaborate with each  other - learning from each other and offering inspiration.  Artists bring their own reference images and materials.  As a session closes, JJ may choose to offer a group critique if he sees it as beneficial.


While JJ adheres to fundamental principles throughout instruction, all else is fluid.
