"Creating Still Life with Movement and Texture"
March 24-25, 2018
 

In this two-day workshop, students will start with an under-painting using a subtractive method to get the darks and lights along with a solid composition set. For this, we will use a fast dry oil paint. Next, we will learn how to block in while keeping in mind areas that we will draw out more detail and where we will want to have larger more expressive marks for a more abstracted feel. During the workshop, the artist will demonstrate painting techniques, panel prep with oil paint ground, photographing reference material and application of gold leafing. The students will have ample time to paint while the instructor gives individualized instruction.

"The Bigger Picture"
November 3-4, 2018
 

Let’s paint the bigger picture. This two-day intensive workshop combines demos, in-class assignments, and individual instruction to teach students the techniques to create fresh, deliberate marks on a big canvas. Using observational painting as our launching point, we’ll embark each day with energetic painting exercises designed to tap into each participant’s personal voice. The practice of working directly from life results in a heightened awareness and a lasting impression of the moment.
