Fall 2016 Art Classes

Fall 2016 Art Classes

Announcing my Fall 2016 Art Classes beginning in August. A semester includes twelve, three-hour studio style classes where beginner to advanced artists may work in oil or soft pastel. Both a morning  class and an afternoon class are being offered. The morning class will study “Getting the Right Perspective”, where we will copy a master painting and tackle topics such as aerial and linear perspective to improve our depictions of the landscape. The afternoon class will have an open format where artists will bring in their current projects and receive on-going critiques aimed at improving their skills on the subjects they have chosen.

For more information on these classes follow the links below:

Morning Class (9am – NOON) – Getting the Right Perspective

2-Day Portrait Workshop in June

2-Day Portrait Workshop in June

I am so pleased to be giving a portrait workshop in conjunction with the Women Painting Women – Texas Exhibition at the Georgetown Art Center in Georgetown, TX. This is just 28 miles north of Austin, TX. The title of the workshop is Perfecting a Likeness: The Commissioned Portrait in Soft Pastel or Oil and will take place June 26 & 27, 2015 (Friday/Saturday). In these two days we will study from the model and learn to recognize and produce correct anatomy of the face, neck and shoulders. We will also discuss classical proportions of the head and common mistakes made in their construction. Go to my Short Courses & Demos page and click on this workshop to learn more and to register.
