I am available for one-day or multi-day workshops in drawing, painting, and mindfulness. Advance your technical skills in composition, color, drawing, painting in oil or watercolor, or combine yoga with meditative drawing practices.
I have worked with many local clubs, guilds, and other organizations to provide:
I will select the award winners and write a brief and enthusiastic critique about what I loved in the winning artworks.
Invite me to "teach" a skills lesson to your members. This will take about one hour or less. Among the topics I can address are; Depth of Space, Compositional Tools, Tonal Value, The Loomis Method, Creating an Artist Statement.
A Workshop can be several hours or several days. My signature programs are;
"Freedom Flowers" A watercolor workshop on understanding how to employ light and tonal value to create watercolors with more dimension and impact. (3 Days)
"What's Your Story?"; How to create an effective and targeted artist statement. (1 Day)
"Drawing then Painting Watercolor Portraits"; How to quickly and easily draw the human head from any angle using a system created by Andrew Loomis, then quickly layering rich colors which capture the beauty of your subject. (4 Days)
"Planning to Improvise"; How to make most of your important decisions before you go to your final paper or canvas. Includes many shortcuts to reduce your struggles later on. (2 Days)
"Color Theory" An exploration through study and application which simplifies this difficult subject making it easy to understand and apply. ( 3 Days)
"Depth of Space" A review of the cues for making believable three-dimensional space appear inside a two-dimensional format. These can add depth to Abstracts as well as landscapes from observation. (1 Day or 3 Days)
"Artistic Voice": Inquiry and practice will guide participants in discovering their unique gifts, interests, and history in a way that opens them up to new possibilities for their artistic practice,
I will provide positive and encouraging feedback that helps your members to break through whatever is blocking them with a particular artwork. This is informative and illuminating not only for the person who created the artwork but for everyone listening.
I can create a permanent video or Powerpoint tutorial for your organization giving step-by-step instruction in your choice of a particular art skill or technique.
Please reach out to me to discuss possible dates and fees.
