Intermediate / Advanced Art on Wednesdays in June at River House

with Jenny Keyser



only 1 seat left

This class is for students with prior knowledge of composition and art (for example, anyone who has taken Jenny’s Acrylic Landscape Painting class should consider this next step!). In this class, a variety of techniques and media will be introduced that can serve to add to the students’ current repertoire and consequently deepen the artist’s practice and individual voice. The use of mixed media, mono-printing, layering, scraping, papermaking, an exploration of earth art and the incorporation of words/poetry are all possible classes. Jenny will schedule the materials for each class based on interest. Her goal is to further develop your style all within an art historical framework. Please bring a project you are working on to continue your practice between groups of demonstrations / experimentations. It is the “fabric of the individual voice” that Jenny will try to help cultivate by working with each student.


Bring to class the materials you enjoy using in your practice along with a current project. Don’t worry, if you are “stuck”, we can discuss. For example: a variety of acrylic paints, brushes, watercolor paints, papers, inventive mark-makers, colored pencils, graphite, fine markers, a palette (paper plates work well!), inspirational writings, sketchbook thoughts, a rag for clean-up, a cup for water, a pencil and eraser, sketchbook paper, a plastic bag to transport your piece etc… (I also invite water soluble oil paints as well, but these may be harder to transport while wet).

Jenny is an award-winning, independent, St. Augustine area artist and has shown her work internationally in galleries and museums.  Her formal education includes a BS from Vanderbilt University, a certificate in Museum Studies from Northwestern University and an MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.

Class sessions will be held on Wednesdays, June 7, 14, 21, 28 from 2:00-4:00 pm at River House (179 Marine Street, St. Augustine 32084).

Classes are for ages 18 and up.
