Instructor Dave Jones with equal passions for jazz and modern art. He plays the saxophone and is an accomplished composer. He has been drawing and painting since he was 12.  “I love abstract art because when it’s good it can put the viewer in touch with who they are, beyond language, culture, psychology, history or personality.”  Infuenced by Jasper Johns, Robert Rauschenberg, Willem de Kooning, Mark Rothko, Cy Twombly and Richard Gayton (his drawing teacher at The California

College of Arts and Crafts), Dave says “My drive is for new and dynamic color interaction; an active, energetic composition; and some compelling quality that  keeps the painting alive and engaging even after many years”

In addition to creating and selling his art, Dave teaches traditional drawing, painting and color theory for young and old, both in his studio and in public venues. He’s

taught at risk youth and public school teachers. Complete course curriculum and current offerings are on his website:
