  • About

    Spend the weekend painting "like an artist". (limited to only 10 students) learn to work on an easel and large format canvases. Using GOLDEN paints, build a basic working knowledge of color, layering, blending, experiment with tools, textures and shape to create the artwork you have always wanted to create, but were afraid how and where to start. in this small setting you will be given one on one attention, with the comfort of asking questions and being guided when you need that extra artistic push. i will create along side you throughout the weekend sharing first hand working knowledge of techniques and tips as well as demonstrating them in application. No drawing or painting skills required. students should bring an apron.
