Painting Workshops and Local Classes

National/International and LaPorte, CO Studio

The workshops welcome all levels of students. The demonstrations and instruction are for oils but those well versed in pastel and acrylic are welcome to join us. The painting instruction will benefit the experienced students wanting to enhance their skills as well as the novice oil painters looking for more confidence and a solid background in the basics.

Both plein air and studio workshops are offered. The focus is not only on painting but on solid composition, creating atmospheric perspective, understanding color temperatures and values. The students will develop their individual   abilities while enhancing their own creative styles. The workshop emphasis will be on oils but artists familiar with other mediums are welcome.

Make your studio paintings look as spontaneous as your plein air paintings done on location.

This studio class will help you loosen up and become more spontaneous with your painting. Often we paint ‘plein air’ with a sense of bravado and then tighten up when we work from a photo. During the class we will use photo references while learning how to treat them as if painting the scene on location. Emphasis will be on choosing good composition, an inviting design, correct values and colors that sing. The instruction and demos will be for oils but those well versed in other mediums are welcome. The class is available to all levels of painters.
