We love to promote Portland artists and art teachers. We discovered that Portland artist, Scott Conary has been teaching an ongoing painting class online since April 2020, making it especially relevant during COVID-19. It's a combination of live video demos, discussions and even art critiques if you so desire. He feels that his style of teaching suits hermits and introverts because you get to paint and get instruction all from the comfort of your own home studio.
If you should need any painting supplies, please don't hesitate to make an art supply order with us at this link.
He emphasizes teaching the formal elements of art such as light, shade, tone, and he does so with humor and a reverence for finding what works best for each individual artist. Here's what he says you'll learn from him:
Heather Reed is the Assistant Manager/Buyer and office rockstar at IBF. She writes all of our emails, blog posts and and manages all of our social media sites. Heather is also an artist and has experience in lots of various mediums. You will usually find her researching new products, finding the best bargains, writing, painting, enjoying nature, all while chasing around her two vivacious little boys.
