Please note.. Once a class has begun there is no refunds. We have held your station from the moment of your payment but we will make every effort to accommodate your needs. If the class has filled we do take wait lists and pro-rate the students coming in later, or unexpected circumstances for students that have to leave if we have replacements for their station.
We maintain a warm, friendly atmosphere and offer encouragement when artist frustrations set in. The group works together to find solutions and to help each other achieve their goals. The RRA reserves the right to ask a student to leave if he/she becomes disruptive to the other students or teachers. No-refund will be given in this situation so please don't come if you do not get along with others. Our priority lies with our students to help every student to achieve success and to enjoy their experience.
"To achieve success in painting it is necessary to thoroughly understand the craft, to be absolute master of the material, to draw correctly and with facility. It is well worth advocating the study of still life painting for the serious student, to prove its value in the search for beauty in arrangement, color, light, atmosphere and values. The simplest and most thorough way of acquiring all the knowledge of the craft of painting and drawing, the studying of inanimate objects, still life painting, the surest road to absolute mastery over all technical difficulties."
Emil Carlsen, Instructor at the National Academy of Design "On Still-Life Painting" from Palette & Bench (pg. 6-8) Oct. 1908
What students are saying...
" My introduction to the art world was inspired by Linda Schroeter. I first met her at my children's elementary school where she was volunteering endless hours of her time to enhance the art classes and start a program so the children from kindergarten through Eighth grade could experience real art methods and history. I then became interested in learning to paint and have taken classes from Linda and the Russian River Atelier. Linda is a brilliant artist with amazing skill and artistic insight, her work has a very passionate undertone and meaning. That being said I think her greatest gift is her ability to teach, there are millions of artists in this world but few great art teachers. Linda's knowledge, gentle demeanor and patience has given me the confidence to learn to paint." Danya Richter-Nicastro
"Linda is a highly trained and very knowledgeable artist, has wonderful personality and huge impact on students. I study with Linda only for a few months and already can see a big improvement in my painting techniques. She has created a wonderful and friendly atmosphere in her studio which is very important to all of us. I love coming to the studio." Luba Stolper
