All levels of artists welcome!
Too often we become obsessed with learning a painting technique. In doing so, we forget the creative side of painting. This workshop will focus on organizing visual information around the basics--line, shape, value, light and color. Emphasis will be placed on pushing these visual elements that are found in the landscape to suggest reality rather than strictly defining it. Come with an open mind and take your paintings to the next level!

Due to popular interest, we are now offering two separate sessions of the same workshop. When calling to sign up, please specify which week you'd like to join. If the session is full, we will place you on a waiting list.
