PAINTING TIP:  How about taking your art to a new level?

Paintings that pop!  A color explosion!  Selection of color schemes and bringing your paintings to a whole new level.   Whether you are a realist, expressionist or abstract artist, you will learn processes for creating a color explosion of colorful artwork.   

Oil Impressions: 

Water-Mixable Oil Painting Workshops


Oil impressions! Exploring color! Think composition! Expressionistic!

Enjoy becoming a creative, expressive, productive and successful artist while shaping your own painting style!  In these workshops,  students will develop skills and experiment with composition, color, technique, movement, and the joy of creating art.  Water-mixable oils create a “rich and buttery” painting medium and oil painters can achieve a variety of painting effects, with boundless brush selections and techniques.  Students have the option of choosing what they would like to paint.  Returning students may also continue to develop the autonomy to paint with individualism and originality. Basic drawing and painting experience is recommended.

July Workshops

PAINTING TIP:  It’s all about organization!
Organizing the area of value patterns — structures that hold the painting together.  A point of interest doesn’t just appear, it comes from planning the right placement in your painting.  Paint with persuasion and perseverance — while creating patterns and forms with a strong identity.
