Mike Rooney gives students a succinct four-session course in visual art’s most essential skill. Painters, sculptors, and problem-solvers are invited to start from scratch on a new skill, or to brush up their existing technique with a solid review of fundamentals.

A perfect start for beginners, a solid refresher for advanced students.

Mike Rooney is recognized as one of the East Coast’s top plein air (outdoor) painters and instructors, and he has traveled from Maine to the Florida Keys, Italy, Cuba and Puerto Rico teaching at major art centers, judging art shows, and painting for his galleries there.

He has been on the cover of the Art Issue of Cape Cod Magazine and is collected both privately and by corporations such as Royal Canadian Bank.

He also makes teaching videos for Jerry’s Artarama, a nationwide art supply store.
