Mon. 10am - 1pm (Resume Soon)
Mono-Prints are one-of-a-kind paintings that are made on a plate or piece of plexi-glass, that is transferred to paper, via a press. We use oil based inks which give you a beautiful, rich saturation of color which you can layer with multiple runs for maximum effect. The workshops are small 4 to 6 people max to ensure maximum press time. If you want instant gratification then this is the medium for you! If you have attention deficit, then this is the medium for you! And, if you want to explore and extend an existing body of work, then I cannot say enough about mono-printing. Just bring your ideas and a few personal items and be prepared to have a great art making experience!

Scott Yeskel was raised in the suburbs of Orange County, California after his parents moved from New Jersey when he was a child. The mild weather and suburban sprawl fueled Scott’s interest in the landscape. After graduating from high school, he moved to San Francisco to pursue an education in the arts. Yeskel graduated from the Academy of Art College in 2002 where he won first place in the Landscape category at the Academy’s Annual Spring Show. He was quickly picked up by galleries in Philadelphia, Laguna Beach and San Francisco. Since that time, Scott has been the subject of over a dozen solo shows, countless group exhibitions and has been featured in over 20 magazine and newspaper editorials. His work speaks to those who identify with the California lifestyle – often romantic but sometimes plagued with fustration. His love/hate relationship with Los Angeles’ freeways, boxy apartments and urban sprawl feed Yeskel’s desire to paint his environment as he sees – a jumble of mixed emotions. Recently, Scott’s work was purchased by prestigious corporate collections including Microsoft and NBC/ Universal.
Abstract Painting Student
I have been a student at the Kline Academy for about 4 months now and it has been a great experience. I came to the Abstract Painting class with absolutely zero training – and after 2 classes I was actually painting! Now I’m totally hooked, making really great progress and enjoying every minute. The teachers and staff at Kline Academy are fantastic. It’s a no stress, creative and very supportive environment, for people of all ages. I highly recommend!
