      Classes

      I am not currently offering classes but plan to do some in the near future.  I have some of my past class descriptions here to give you a sense of how I teach and perhaps to whet your appetite for future offerings.  Please email or call me if you'd like to be contacted about future classes and workshops. Thanks!  Johnny (857-389-6632)

      Past Students Say:

      "Johnny is one of the most empathetic people I know and his art classes are the best art classes I've ever taken.  Johnny provides a safe place where I have been able to express myself, surprise myself, get to know myself.  He has helped me grow as an artist and as a human being.  There was so much energy in the room.  I am so happy to see that he is offering classes and workshops again.  Run, don't walk!"  --Billie Jo Joy

      "Johnny is an amazing teacher/guide for a creative journey of self discovery and self expression.  His extraordinary combination of artistic training & talent, teaching experience, and intuitive connection come together to make an ideal space for students to explore and create.  Not only is his class practical in terms of figuring out how to render your ideas in a visual medium, but it can also be profoundly transformative if you choose to creatively explore feelings and memories that reside more deeply in your psyche.  Whether you choose to participate with a light touch or a deep dive, you will have a wonderful, productive and worthwhile time."  --Former Art Class Participant

      Acting Improvisation

      There are myriad characters and stories waiting to burst out of each one of us.  Using acting improv structures from a variety of disciplines and especially drawing from the work of master actor and director Daena Giardella, we will learn to say yes to each moment while creating edgy scenes of dramatic consequence from thin air and from the rich blood of common humanity alive in every one of us. All Levels.

      ColorMania

      Why do some colors turn us on?  We will use multiple painting and collage explorations to discover and develop personal color palettes that rock our visual world.  Your final 2-D or 3-D project will create something to bring home that will let your palette live in your everyday life. (Most materials provided.)

      Powerful Portraits

      This intense class will guide you and assist you in creating a symbolically meaningful and spiritually charged portrait of yourself, someone else, or some combination of beings--human or animal.  Inspired by Frida Kahlo, we will use guided visualization, personal experience, visual reference, and intuitive knowing to create a powerful portrait whose imagery and intent will have meaning and consequence for our ongoing journey.  (All Levels. Most materials provided)

      Drawing Out Our Sexualities

      How does sex live in the dance of your life? How can we make intimate art about our erotic and sexual lives from the inside out?  In a small confidential class group we will explore our own unique ways to illustrate the specific longings, the pains, the mysteries and the pleasures we may experience that will push away all the imagery telling us how to (and how not to) feel.  To honor and express our deep experience of sexuality - trans, bi, poly, queer, straight, or omni - we will use whatever artistic means necessary (drawing, painting, sculpture, video, photo, collage, etc.) to render personally charged erotic imagery with passion, sensuality, and grace. (All Levels. A small group with lots of attention to respect and openness. Many art materials provided.)
