Robert Crawford conducts classes and workshops in his studio at 550 Main St. Bethlehem. Please email me with any questions.

 

Even though the emphasis is on acrylics the very basics of painting will be covered like drawing, composition, color, and how and where to get inspiration. Oil painters are definitely  welcome and encouraged! 

 

We have easels at the studio or tables for use. 

Subject matter will be the choice of the student. I will be happy to help if the student needs help to choose.
