INTRO to Color Theory – 1/22/20 6-8:30pm $95

Color theory introduces students to basic color mixing, how to make their own color charts and how to use specific color combinations to create certain visual effects like depth and shadow. This was my favorite and most valuable class in college and is a great building block for all workshops.

INTRO to Landscape – 1/29/20 6-8:30pm $95

The landscape workshop teaches basic skills on how to approach a landscape painting, including easy tips on where to start a landscape, how to scale and how to use color to create depth. I was blown away by the works created by my ‘non artist’ students!

INTRO to Portrait – 2/5/20 6-8:30pm $95

This portrait workshop is a really easy and a fun way to learn portrait in an expressionistic style. It sounds intimidating but I’ll ease you into creating an image that will make you proud. I’m pretty sure students in my portrait workshops laugh more than in any other workshop, its so fun!

INTRO to Abstract and Texture – 2/12/20 6-8:30pm $95

Painting with texture is really hot on 30A right now and students love learning to work with venetian plaster to create unique abstract work. I loved seeing how each student went their own direction in this workshop and they truly amazed themselves and were proud of their work!

Valentine’s Day Portrait Workshop 2/14/20 7-9:30pm $200 for two people- includes champagne, snacks and deluxe bonding
