2 Day in person Workshop: Max class size: 15 

October 12 & 13, 9 am to 4 pm 

$325 per student 


This workshop is only for two days and so we will focus on the general process that I and many other successful Artists use. We will go over the principles of Design and how they will make out paintings better if we apply them.
After teaching for over 60 years, I am convinced that most paintings are ruined at the start, as we just don't give enough thought or consideration to working out our concept and design with small value and color studies. I will have a presentation and a couple of demo's that explain this process of doing value and color studies and how important they can be. 

Students should feel free to ask any questions at any time and I will do my best to give a reasonable answer

So, for the best quality the judges can look at, you still need to have as close to the resolution of 1920 pixels @ 72dpi on the LONGEST side. At the VERY LEAST, your image should be at least 800 pixels on the longest side. 

Your image files must be jpg and under 4 mb.
