    Build your confidence and move onto the next level with your paintings in this studio painting class with Anita Louise West occurring over four Wednesday’s.  By working with Ms. West, a lifetime of painting experience is available to you to help you advance your paintings on three major  levels: Content, design and techniques.  Each class will have a short demo and individual help at the easel.  We will explore how to paint in pastel, water media and oil as well as materials old and new.

    During each class, you will learn how to maximize your use of the elements of art: shape, value, line, texture, and color. Each of these will be explained as well as demonstrated at every class session.  Using the principles of design to increase your painting’s impact will be explained and so much more.   

    Bring your materials (paints, brushes, palette, surface and photos or sketches to work from) easels are supplied.  This class is open to students working in all media and all levels are welcome.

    Artist Statement:

    Ms. Anita Louise West has had a passion for painting from an early age. She graduated with a BA in Art from Missouri University. Ms. West went on to study at the Kansas City Art Institute on scholarship and earned a teaching certificate at the graduate level at UMKC. Teaching in public schools in Kansas, California and Texas, she continued to study and paint using oil, watercolor, acrylic and pastel. 

    Landscape painting on location helped to simplify the subject matter and paint without hesitation, and study the changing conditions of weather and light outdoors. 

    Anita’s fluency in all mediums and subject matter helps facilitate her students’ growth.

    Having been a professional painter and business owner since 1989, Anita moved to Santa Fe, NM in 1993 where she was introduced to the national art world. She painted and taught workshops throughout the United States as well as Spain, France and Canada. 

    Returning to her childhood dream of painting in New York in 2007, Anita studied at the Art Students League with Mary Beth Mackenzie, Daniel Greene, Nelson Shanks and Richard Schmid. This experience in the studio helped her appreciate figure and portrait work as well as Plein Air painting. Co-author of Painting the Landscape in Pastel, Ms. West is capable of explaining and simplifying the materials and methods of painting in all mediums. To register,  please visit:

    For Immediate Release

    Open Studio and Gallery Re-opening

    Albuquerque, April 28, 2021:  Starting May 1st Carla Forrest Fine Art Studio & Gallery will host open studio on Fridays and Saturdays from 1 to 4 pm and Second Sundays noon to 4 pm. Private studio visits and lessons can be arranged by appointment. Studio visitors can enter a raffle to win an original oil painting!

    Workshops and Instruction

    Carla is planning an advanced oil painting workshop focusing on impasto techniques, hopefully to be held this summer, as well as mentor paint-alongs and artists' ateliers covering targeted topics, such as "The Art of the Commission". Currently she is looking for a venue since several locations are no longer available. The next atelier will be held on Saturday May 29, 9 am to Noon. This 3-hour paint-along in oil, acrylic, or gouache will take a collaborative approach in discovering one’s artistic voice. Proteges will follow Carla’s demonstration of painting an outdoor scene or still life set-up for a few steps at a time. She will provide individual mentorship to encourage your artistic growth. Attendees are responsible for bringing their own artist materials and refreshments. Sessions meet at her studio in Old Town Albuquerque, unless other local arrangements are made, compliant with New Mexico health orders. Additional sessions for up to 6 people will be scheduled in 2021 on Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday mornings either outdoors or indoors. Contact Carla at if you are interested or visit her website for more information..

    Nationally recognized for her contemporary paintings with vibrant color, Carla studied art and design at State University of New York and Rochester Institute of Technology, and currently is represented by Weyrich Gallery in Albuquerque’s Northeast Heights.
