Teaching artists keep the arts alive! Teaching artists are practicing, professional artists who have dual careers as educators. They come from every artistic field and work in many settings. The teaching artists play an integral role in the fabric of the BAI, the community, provide high-quality, creative, lifelong learning experiences to people of all ages and abilities. Our mission is to connect artists with opportunities to engage the community in making art. In doing so, the BAI is always looking for the right fit and to keep it affordable for the students. With your class fee, we create an open art space for the community and support our working artists. If you are interested in teaching an art class and would like to join us, please email our programs manager, Glenna Smith at Glenna.Smith@borregoartinstitute.org. 

Our calendar for classes and workshops is still under development with more coming up in October!

    Watercolor Sketching Balboa, Newport Beach with Kristen Olson Stone


    Class is OFF-SITE on Balboa Island in Newport Beach, CA


    Watercolor sketching is great fun! It allows you to immerse yourself in your environment while you create lasting memories in your sketchbooks.  I'll demonstrate, step by step, a relaxed, easy-to-learn method of sketching with a pen followed by color mixing and brush techniques.  This class will help turn anyone into an enthusiastic watercolor sketcher with no experience needed at all.  


    The supplies are small and lightweight making it the perfect medium for anyone who wants to pack a set of paints to take along on trips or for people who are short on space and want to paint at home.  It’s also ideal for artists working in other mediums such as oil and acrylic as it helps with the practice of design, composition, and color balance. The sketches can be used in the making of larger artworks.


    Each small group, 1-day class is from 9:30am-2:00pm on October 21, 2022


    Supplies are included if you need them.


    Pack a lunch and take a break whenever you feel like it. I’ll begin the class with a morning demonstration, then for the rest of the day you will sketch and paint with my help. I’ll go from person to person offering guidance at your individual level. This is a fun, casual class, the paintings you create are for YOU : )


    Balboa Island is one of the loveliest places in California. It is a set of 2, small islands off the coast of Newport Beach accessible by bridges and a car ferry. There are restaurants, shops, vacation homes and a paved walking path that encircles both islands. There is so much to paint including boats, docks, lovely houses and buildings, flowers, people, and other colorful things.
