Lux Art Institute is redefining the museum experience to make art more accessible and personally meaningful. At Lux, you don’t just see finished works of art; you see the artistic process firsthand, observing internationally recognized artists in a working studio environment.
Lux Art Institute is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
Thursday and Friday: 1:00pm–5:00pm
Monday through Friday: 9:00am–5:00pm
Representing the world we see is the very reason oil paint was invented and it’s the first thing we wish to understand when we are learning to paint. Visiting artist and teacher Alex Schaefer will teach the process of painting step by step from start to finish. To complement a technical foundation, lessons in art history and color theory will demonstrate ways of seeing while building a sense of personal style and expression. This is the ideal course for the beginning painter and an enlightening experience for the advanced artist as well! Open Studio included. Limited to 10 students.
The instructor will provide a materials list on day one. Materials are not provided for this course.

This class is an exciting opportunity for young artists to engage deeply with Lux's residency program. Class size is small (capped at 10 students) to ensure deep engagement with the material. Inspired by the work of our Artist-in-Residence, our Kids-in-Residence are guided in creating a range of art projects in dialogue with the body of work on exhibition. Painting, drawing, and sculpture will be practiced.
September 4, 11, 18, 25, October 2, 9.
Artist-in-Resident: Lia Halloran
Instructor: Hilary Soderling
