Students bring a variety of setups to this outdoor class

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!

About

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.
