Adult East Bay residents who have never taken a class or workshop with me are invited! No previous painting knowledge is necessary. Bring your own media or try mine, and have fun learning how to paint a still life. Enjoy a relaxed, nurturing atmosphere and meet other art lovers. Registration is limited to 15 adults. One spot per household, please. Friends need to register too. My studio is wheelchair accessible and I am Spanish bilingual.
Are there ID, age or other requirements to register for the event?
The workshop is for people 18 or older, although I am open to accepting a parent accompanied by a teen 16 or older. It is open to East Bay residents who have not taken a class with me before.
What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?
There is street parking on Arlington Blvd. The closest BART station is El Cerrito Del Norte, but it is not within walking distance of my studio.
What can I bring into the workshop?
You can bring an apron and your own brushes, pastels, watercolors, acrylics or oils if you have them. But you don’t need to have materials because I can supply what you need.
One weekend only! Visit my Richmond studio and take advantage of the lowest prices during this traditional event. I will have an even wider array of gicleé art prints for sale, as well as smaller paintings at affordable prices. Please scroll down to check the map for directions.
This year, beginning on June 2nd, one of my new portraits will be on display at the Old Oakland Train Station at the corner of Wood and 16th Street.
Dust off that acrylic or oil set you received last christmas. Act on your resolution to spend more time on your own development. or finally embark on an activity that brings the satisfaction of learning something new. Learn how to paint the sights you love with as much or as little feedback as you desire. Use the media of your choice. I can help you with acrylic, oil, watercolor, gouache or pastel. We’ll spend two weeks at each painting location so that students can either begin a new painting or complete the one begun in the previous session.
I am excited to announce that will be teaching this popular class again this summer, but this time I will be offering plein air in a different way. Students will be able to buy a package of six Friday afternoon classes and take them in June, July or the beginning of August. The fee is $200. Learn more here!
Rebeca grew up in a suburb of San Juan, Puerto Rico as part of a family of immigrants and sugar cane workers. She went to a public school of the arts and discovered painting through a scholarship from the Art Students’ League of San Juan. At the University of Puerto Rico, she completed a BFA in printmaking and moved to San Francisco immediately after. Rebeca has always been interested in the urban landscape and in the figure. She enjoys painting outdoors and the opportunity to interact with the communities she paints.
