We will be focusing on a variety of techniques, materials and topics, including:

  • painting from imagination vs. painting from life

  • developing an individual approach to color

  • how to mix media/materials for best results

  • composition

  • monochrome schemes

  • scanning, photography, recording & sharing

This workshop is open to all levels - from beginners to seasoned artists.
