To kick off the new year strong, The Distortion of Eyes and Noses is an intensive 4 week course with a focus on the face and a special emphasis on eyes and noses. We begin by first getting a solid understanding of how to draw and form those two features, then push our fundamental understanding with expression using line, color, and values. There will be two live teaching sessions each week through FB Live in our secret classroom and downloadable video content as well. If 3-D noses or expressive eyes are a struggle for you, or just capturing strong emotion and expression in the face, this course will be beneficial to you! Our mediums will be charcoal, watercolor, fluid acrylics and a bit of mixed media. The course is $150 and you can register below!

This 4-Week intensive online course introduces us to the observation of line in our daily lives, how to identify and create lines of expression, and how to move from predictable, forced, and controlled lines to outrageous lines of energy, feeling, and confidence. Combining my Push Past Ordinary course with the daily practice of creativity, this course helps painters and thinkers alike approach line in an unexpected way with new lenses for experiencing them as creative tools of the trade. Two FB Live teaching sessions per week in our secret classroom, a dive into using our art journals for focused practice, and a sensible approach to brushwork give this course the best of both worlds for creatives and painters. If you can block of four weeks to devote to deep diving into line exploration and expression, the course will be transformative for you.

One of the most influential mediums of my career was watercolor. I began with it 15 years ago and this summer I am coming full circle to offer a 4 week intensive online course focusing on aqua media and portraits. Using watercolors, acrylic fluids, and water soluble marking tools, we will gather and explore the structure of the face, tilt of the head, features of the face, and dramatic techniques using flow, contrast, and expressive mark making. You can work in either watercolor, acrylic fluids, or both and we will work on watercolor paper as our substrate. This course combines an intensive study of painting a portrait with the freedom and flow of watermedia.

Course comes with downloadable videos, 8 live teaching sessions, and printable PDF manual. (FB is required for Secret Classroom Enrollment)

Aquamedia for Abstracts is a dynamic online course with an emphasis on using watercolor and fluid acrylics in unorthodox ways to create abstract works on paper. We will approach the mediums as water pigments, pushing the edges of transparency with line, luminosity, and values. There will be a strong focus on composition as well as the impact of what we are hoping to express using our marks, pigments, and color. If you are a portrait artist who combines abstraction with figurative work this course will serve you well as you build your skill set on water media techniques and how to.

We will cover a ton during the month along with the use and layering of water soluble tools, textural work, and color design within the range of floating colors on to paper and in to fluids. If you have a month to commit to practice and engagement this course might be exactly what you are looking for in regard to pushing your non-representational abstract practice further.

You will have access to the course for one year to take it at your own pace. It comes with downloadable videos, 8 live teaching sessions that you can view at any time, and a weekly printable PDF manual. (FB is required for Secret Classroom Enrollment)
