Red Truck - Mike Rooney's Art Class - SOLD

This weekend I took an art class with Mike Rooney in Atlanta.  It was a Plein Air class and we met at the Goat Farm in Atlanta where there were interesting buildings, old trucks, chickens and yes, goats.
The class consisted of nine wonderful artists, it was offered by Binders Art Supply and took place  Friday - Sunday.  Mike is a wonderful, inspiring instructor. and his presentation on values and color mixing was one of the best I have  ever heard.  His teaching style is full of humor, personable and loaded with information.  At the end of every painting sesssion Mike offers a critique of every student's work.  These critiques provided a great opportunity for learning along with suggestions to assist each of us with  improving our paintings.  Because Mike is a spokesperson for Jerry's ArtArama, you can find several instructional videos by him on youtube.  One is found here    The videos are very short,  informative and easy to follow.  Check them out and his wonderful work at :     I cannot recommend his class more highly!
