Workshops are a great way to get motivated and push yourself to the next level. My classes are for beginners through advanced students and include a step by step introduction to painting with a palette knife. I teach using a “hands on approach” and I promise you that my workshops will help enhance and expand your love for painting! In a three-day workshop the students will typically complete four paintings. My workshops are fun and include lots of time to talk about your art ... whether that includes marketing your art or tips to becoming a “daily painter”. My workshops are taught in my Carriage House Workshop Studio in South Pasadena, our beach house in Ventura, Ca. and in other cities in the U.S. My workshops are a forum for artists to discover their true love of painting.

If you are looking to loosen up and paint in a more expressive and spontaneous style then my abstract workshop is for you.

My online classes consist of videotaped instruction from start to finish It starts with the selection of subject matter and continues with setting up the composition on canvas, followed by how I premix my color palette. The videos continue with blocking in the shapes of my painting, matching values and temperatures, adding detail and finishing with highlights.
