Have you longed to take a workshop with an instructor but either couldn't clear your calendar for travel or couldn't pull the budget to make it work?

 

Do you really love working in your own space but are seeking some new perspectives on your painting practice? 

 

 I have so been there in both regards which is why I was passionate that in 2018 I wanted to offer some online options for specific groups of artists and skill sets. 


For the first half of this year I will be offering three types of online classes, a year long creativity class (which filled), 5-6 week online classes for beginners or seasoned artists wishing to dive in to specific skill sets with live instruction, and self-study classes which are skill based but stand alone. 

 

Free lessons and Self-Study courses will be coming in January as well as FB live chats around all things creativity, painting, and skill building!

DISTORTION

This 6 week online class is designed for the painter who wishes to learn specific techniques of how to distort, alter, bend, segment, and fracture the line, plane, and face using acrylics and mixed media. It is meant for those who wish to push the ordinary well past their comfort zone and move from rendering an image to manipulating an image for expression and message.  We will work on paper or canvas, push contrast and unexpected outcomes, and bend our grey cells around what it means to technically distort the act of painting.

 

The course includes live lessons through FB Live, 6 groups of downloadable video content, an instructional Ebook, a private FB classroom to engage and ask questions, and critique and feedback. Optional one on one instruction can be accessed as well through a consultation. 

 

You will need a FB account and to friend me on FB so that I can add you to our classroom!

February 12-March 30th, 2018! This class is $150

Registration is now closed (see below for session two)

ABSTRACTION

 

This 6 week online class is designed to teach the beginner to intermediate painter how to strengthen their understanding of composition, contrast, visual interest, and color while working within the practice of abstraction. We will use ordinary objects to study form, abstract their shapes, and design paintings with unique structure and details using acrylics and mixed media. 

 

The course includes live lessons through FB Live, 6 groups of downloadable video content, and instructional Ebook, a private FB classroom to engage and ask questions, and critique and feedback. Optional one on one instruction can be accessed as well through a consultation.

This 6 week online class is a dual class designed for those who have been through session one AND those who are new to Distortion.

We will explore specific techniques of how to distort, alter, bend, segment, and fracture the line, plane, and face or figure using acrylics and mixed media. It is meant for those who wish to push the ordinary well past their comfort zone and move from rendering an image to manipulating an image for expression and message.  We will work on paper or canvas, push contrast and unexpected outcomes, and bend our grey cells around what it means to technically distort the act of painting connected to exaggeration and message.

For those painters who have gone through Session One, you will have a separate curriculum with 6 new distortion techniques to further advance your distortion study. For those new to Distortion, you will focus on the basics and the first 6 techniques.

The course includes live lessons through FB Live, 6 groups of downloadable video content, an instructional Ebook, a private FB classroom to engage and ask questions, and critique and feedback. Optional one on one instruction can be accessed as well through a consultation.
