My workshops are packed with information that is presented in a clear, concise, understandable way. It is my desire that each participant leave with a deeper understanding of what it takes to create a great painting, and to that end, I help each individual at their point of need.

Each workshop begins with an explanation of painting basics: concept, composition, drawing, value, color, technique, and presentation…but, workshop emphasis will be on value and color.

I make every effort to create a warm, friendly environment so that no one feels intimidated or left behind. I ask each student to come with humility, a willingness to learn, and a generous and helpful attitude toward their fellow classmates.

Instruction is not only verbal but actually demonstrated. There may also be times when I feel it necessary to work directly on a student’s painting.

Basically, I instruct, then demonstrate what I’ve taught, followed by each student applying what they just learned.

All instruction will be based on my recently produced, best selling book and videos. Previewing these prior to attending a workshop will be of great help to you.

Hope you’ll join us for one of the workshops. It would be a good idea to make your interest known early, for they tend to fill quickly.
