Schedule a Workshop for Your Group

Painting workshops focus on oil painting skills and techniques. While workshops are mainly geared to oil painting, acrylic painters are welcome as well, as my approach is very similar to both. All level of students are welcome – beginners as well as seasoned pros. I teach in the studio or en plein air, outside, weather permitting, and I can tailor the content of the workshop to fit your group. You provide the location and students, and I’ll be there to lead the group. I have a supply list for your artists so they know what to bring, although experienced artists are welcome to use the supplies they’re used to.

Workshops help artists loosen up, connect with their personal style, and stay motivated. I offer technical instruction, class discussion, and gentle critique. I focus on ways to create stronger composition, how to use color successfully, and work quickly without getting stuck.

I am also honored to be a Gamblin Dedicated Workshop Instructor. Over the years, I have used many different oil paints from many different companies, but I keep coming back to Gamblin paints and mediums, which I use and love. As a dedicated workshop instructor, I’ll bring free samples to my students as well as in-depth information about paints, solvents, and mediums.
