LEARN Jacksonville "The courses at UNFCE, of which I took Painting in Acrylics I, II, and III, Painting in Oils, and Painting in Watercolor I, gave me the knowledge and ability to re-engage as an artist after a 45-year hiatus and two successful careers. Keith Doles, who teaches the acrylics and oil courses, was an inspiring and capable instructor who provided me with much needed mentorship."
