Workshops


This colorful bouquet of tulips is warmed by a soft ray of early morning sunshine.  There is a lovely glow that illumines the left side and casts intriguing shadows over the right.  Join me in a one-day Zoom workshop June 25, and I’ll show you how to create each texture in this composition.  We’ll work on those lustrous petals, the terracotta pitcher and wood bowl, and the grainy table surface to bring these elements to life.  Students will be provided with material downloads that include the supply list, line drawing, an illustrated step-by-step instructional booklet, class demo directions, and the photo reference.  Learn how to transform a colored pencil drawing into a painting with a variety of tips and techniques taught during this class.  ALL SKILL LEVELS will feel comfortable, and we will progress at a moderate pace which will include lunch and a brief break.  Artworks will be critiqued privately via email, and a video recording of the entire workshop will be sent to each student within a few days of workshop completion.
