About the instructor
Kris Finch was born and raised in San Diego's East County. At an early age Kris' artistic talents were noticed by his friends, family, and teachers, all of which encouraged him to keep drawing. Kris has studied at the prestigious Watts Atelier of the Arts in Encinitas, California under the great figurative artists Jeff Watts and Ron Lemen and at San Diego Art Department (SDAD). In just four years after he began his career as a teacher, Kris was teaching more sold out courses than any other instructor at the institution.
Kris firmly believes that anyone can learn how to paint with proper technique, knowledge and patience. His student's often attribute their ease of learning to his upbeat personality, positive attitude, and strong knowledge of classical painting and drawing skills. Kris is a member of the Oil Painters of America.
MESSAGE FROM KRIS:
If you are reading this, great! I look forward to meeting you, this is a really fun class. I am a strong believer in the importance of drawing skills—this is how we begin to really see the world around us. It's also the best ground work for any artist who wants to paint as well. Grab your sketchbook and join me on Friday mornings as let’s take a new look at some of the iconic locations in San Diego.
