The students will be encouraged to maximize their time.
"When someone is talking next to you, they are taking your energy and focus from the painting." Everyone likes this policy because it allows each student to feel like they can concentrate and can get their work done.
This is what goes in my mind before I paint,
1. Do I want to create a soft mood or dramatic.
2. What do I want to say with my colors, values?
3. Where is my energy going? Movement?
4. Where is my "focal point" and much more.
There is more to painting than just " technique"
Please take notice!
When you come to the workshop you will notice that this is a place for:
Being respected as an Artist,
Being prepared for NON-STOP work,
Watching lots of demos,
Asking hundreds of questions, and
Lots of hands on sessions. ALSO, there are no male or female artists in my workshops......just CREATIVE PEOPLE that come to learn something NEW!
If you like a workshop were there is a lot of people working and not talking, this is for you!
The students will be given projects to work on. These projects are designed to bring the students to a higher level in a short time. There will be a variety of subject matter ....A people painting one day and something else the next day. The students will watch 5-6 small demos everyday and every demo will have problem solving goal.
My goal is for you to paint without guessing.
