Upcoming Workshops in 2019!!

I’m also pleased to announce that I will be offering several workshops in 2019, some here at my studio at the Oakland Cannery, and some in other locations.

Workshops will be most suitable for artists with some experience as we will focus on painting the beautiful natural light in my space, which changes frequently. We will work from life to take full advantage of the subtlety and variety this light offers, and talk about strategies to deal with changing light in the course of developing a painting.

Classes will be small, with a maximum of 6 students, to maximize choice in angles/motifs, and also to ensure each student gets plenty of individual discussion and instruction.

Workshops will generally be one weekend, Friday, Saturday and Sunday, 9 am - 4pm. Each workshop will include a ‘slide’ lecture and discussion, as well as demonstrations, and I always work alongside the students. I will be working in oil, and we will have adequate ventilation, but you are welcome to work in any media you choose. Students provide their own materials. Easels are provided, and if you like tacos, there are GREAT tacos nearby.

Two workshops offered will be: “Painting the Ephemeral”, in which we will focus on painting the interior and still life, $425 per student, and “Painting Presence: The Human Figure”, $550 per student.

Those prices are for the entire 3 day session. A deposit of half the workshop fee holds your place. Students on the wait list will be contacted in first-come, first-served order in the event of cancellations. Dates will be announced soon, first on social media, and then by email and here. To get on the email list, please send me your information using the contact form below.
