I took a beginner's drawing class last term and it was a great experience. I am in my mid fifties and never took an art class before this. My teacher, Ray Mendieta, was very clear in his instruction and took us step by step through the basics. He impressed upon us that anyone can learn to draw. It just takes practice and strict adherence to some of the rules of the craft. I bought myself an easel, sketch pad, charcoal pencils, and I am looking forward to the next class. i hope to advance and learn to paint with oils. I've met really nice people in the class and found everyone very supportive and friendly. I love my little routine: drop the kids off at school, drive to downtown Palo Alto, stop by Paris Bagette for a cafe au lait and croissant, park underground on Hamilton, and head to class.

As a Senior who was not able to progress in developing my passion for artistic expression until I moved to the Bay Area at the age of 75, I was delighted to discover the quality of basic instruction in drawing and painting skills that I had sought unsuccessfully for years in other Bay areas, including the famed art center, Carmel, CA. The range of classes, from the vital basics to the esoteric are here and thriving at the Pacific Art League of Palo Alto! I've found the instructors at PAL to be exceptionally well trained and delightfully engaged in supporting the development of the artistic process in each of their individual students. As an educator, I understand that many gifted artists are simply not gifted teachers. The instructors at PAL are not only talented in their chosen medium, but also possess the gift of translating and communicating technique in a positive supportive manner to each of the students in their class, regardless of the student's level at that point in time. My joy and gratitude for this amazing nonprofit is beyond my capacity to express. I look forward to living to be 100+ to catch up with the many artistic discoveries before me! Thank you, PAL and your talented instructors!
