"Earth Alchemy: Create Amazing Depth & Texture with Unusual Materials"
June 25-28, 2019

I love texture and ancient organic ones are the best. Think of metals with gorgeous patinas like copper, rusted metals, crackled surfaces with gloss and grit too. Now we will learn how to apply them to any surface. We’ll put them on fabric, paper, plastic and panels. We will explore materials that are sourced from unusual places such as the home improvement store, the fabric store, the kitchen and the office supply store. I will share how to use acrylic gels, pastes and mediums to expand your texture vocabulary while saving tons of money on paints. I will also give you the three best tips for creating vibrant colors. Join us for some creative fun!

"Bigger, Faster, Fresher, Looser Abstract Painting"
September 9-12, 2019

Have you ever wondered how to Loosen-Up your painting style? Paint with more Freedom? Be more Spontaneous? Be more Expressive? If the answer to any of these questions is yes, then my Bigger, Faster, Fresher, Looser Abstract Painting Workshop is for you! I will teach you how to do each of these realizing there should also be a firm foundation of structure for your paintings using shape, value, color, edges and center of interest. This workshop is also about learning to loosen-up and paint more freely. All who attend will be able to apply the lessons learned to their own style of painting. This workshop is non media specific. All who utilize watercolor, acrylic, and oil are welcome.
