TAKING YOUR WORK TO THE NEXT LEVEL

NOVEMBER 3-5, 2022 /  $550 /  ON TRACK STUDIOS  / FRANKLIN, TN

Artists who are interested in improving their work often get stalled in their progress and just need a kick-start to get back on the path for excellence. This workshop is a chance to take a good honest look at your current work and consider what exactly needs improvement. The class will be divided Into three parts: identification of the one area that most needs improvement, individualized exercises to address the problem, studio painting to put new ideas in to practice. Six weeks of online mentoring is included with the class to maximize the class work. Class size is limited to 12 to maximize individual help.

STUDIO LANDSCAPE

MAY 11-13, 2022 / $500 / BATON ROUGE , LA

The landscape can be represented by so many different painting styles and approaches.  I am most interested in helping each student discover their personal take on landscape painting. The class is designed to build skill to create a landscape in the studio that has the same validity as a plein air sketch.  The reference used can either be a photograph or a plein air sketch.  Discover how best to show your voice as a landscape painter. 

 Instruction will be through demonstration, lecture, and individual easel side help. The class number is limited to allow for a lot of individual attention.  A booklet of notes is provided to help refresh your memory of the concepts presented during class.  In this workshop, you will start two or three landscapes and have the option to complete them with online help from me after class.
