Online Painting Studio
with Andrew Cheddie Sookrah

November 17 to December 22

3 to 6 pm (EST)

I … really liked watching the demo by Andrew. I felt quite engaged—in some ways even more so than in face-to-face classes as I felt I could see “up close” what Andrew was doing in terms of paint mixing and brush strokes Online Participant

Andrew Sookrah is that rare combination of an accomplished artist who is also a gifted teacher. He clearly explains and demonstrates his process, while also giving ample individual attention to each student in the class. Andrew always strikes the right balance between making class challenging and making it fun.  – Peter Fairweather
