2015 art workshops

After a busy year of teaching art in my home studio, I am continuing by offering a series of art workshops in 2015 which has something for everyone from beginners to experienced artists.  I have learned as much as students do by teaching and workshops are tweaked to provide the best experience for participants based on feedback and working in the classroom. The need for learning traditional techniques in a variety of mediums is always present and my workshops emphasize classical methods of drawing and painting, providing a strong grounding to help build good art. 

I am offering five workshops types with available dates throughout the year, from March to December.2015 workshops range from 4 hour intensives to 3 day master classes
  • Colour Theory - 4 hours
  • Introduction to Classical Drawing - 2 four hour sessions
  • Introduction to Palette Knife Painting - 4 hours
  • Drawing Pet Portraits - 2 days
  • Palette Knife Painting - Boats and Water - 3 days
I incorporated a new software package for registration which provides all the workshop information and registration details in one place as well as providing less work for me to create and monitor registration. You can search for available dates and workshops throughout the year, download supply lists and other required documentation all from the registration site.

Registration for 2015 workshops opens on December 15th, but if you're on my mailing list, you already have access to the workshop  link and can pre-register.  You can join my mailing list and receive monthly mailings of Studio News by clicking on the link on the right side of this page.

You can view the full listing of workshops on my website and the link to open registration will be posted here as well as on my website, Facebook and Twitter pages on the 15th.
