If you are interested in having me present a workshop for your organization, please email me and leave me your phone number so that I can contact you and discuss the particulars.

I offer five different workshops:

Design  My design workshop covers both the elements and principles of design. I show how these concepts are interrelated in paintings and how to use these principles to better organize and present a painting.

Color The color workshop will bring the student to an understanding of color so that he will know how to keep colors bright and pure, how to avoid letting colors get muddy, how to use color to aid in showing perspective in the paintings, and how to use color to direct the viewer's attention to the focal point of the picture.


Abstraction  In this workshop I teach students how to create abstract paintings. I have a variety of methods that will be covered. We will  create non-objective abstracts, as well as impressionistic pieces that have recognizable subjects that have been abstracted.


Experimental  . This class is designed to discover the many uses of acrylic products and the effects they can make on paintings, both realistic and abstract. We will experiment with molding paste, glass beads, crackling paste, tar gel, rice papers, webbing and many other fun things to add texture to our work. We will use acrylics in this class.

Oil and
Cold Wax
Many oil painters have had to leave their oils behind because of the physical reaction to the cleaning products. This class shows an alternate way to paint with oils. We will use cold wax as our medium and baby oil as our cleaning agent. It is a very old technique that has found favor with artists again. While students can paint realistically with these products, this class will focus on abstracts. Beginners are welcome!
