Workshop Schedule Update

Among the Birch Trees, pastel, 12x9 

I've just finalized details on some upcoming workshops I'm teaching. Following directly below are my  pastel workshops. The workshops listed at the bottom focus on composition and are not medium specific. 

Pastel Workshops:

"Interpreting the Landscape in Pastel" - Move out of the copying mode and into the interpretive mode! Workshop exercises will address selecting a color palette, developing a strong composition and simplifying busy subject matter. Each day begins with a demonstration and then plenty of individual help at the easel for the remainder of the day.

Other Workshops:

"Composition Boot Camp" -  Push yourself beyond the "typical" composition. Bring your own landscape photos that you normally work from and we'll put them through an intensive composition workout. Through numerous quick studies, you'll move, stretch, crop and basically push the limits of basic landscape subject matter and get that "wow" factor into your compositions. Oil/acrylic painters and pastel artists who work in a representational style and are already familiar with their medium are welcome.
