Workshop Description: There are many useful analogies to making a painting that I find helpful.I would like you to consider how a house is built! First, we have to plot where we want to place the house on the property.(What are the best views etc.?) Next, we need a good layout and design for the house.Then we will need sound foundation and construction.We want quality workmanship.Lastly, we can pay attention to detail and decoration.If we approach it the other way around,we can’t be sure the foundation will hold up over time.In this class, we will develop the skills to be able to accurately see and implement the concepts that will go a long way towards allowing you to communicate your vision in paint.

Workshop Description:
No matter how long one has been painting, there is always something new to learn! Every morning, I will demonstrate and lecture for about an hour and explain the day’s lesson, it will then be your turn to explore the many exciting subjects and compositions to be painted. 
Students will have individual attention at their own easel and a positive critique to give you some food for thought at the end of the day of painting.
This will be a fun and memorable painting holiday for all!
I really look forward to meeting and
painting with all of you!

Workshop Description: During the 10 day celebration of the Arts and the Tuscan Autumn Colors. We will focus on capturing: the best compositions; the Tuscan palette of colors; and the unique Tuscan architecture and countryside. We will be painting the subjects around the vineyards as well as taking excursions to nearby valleys and hill towns. The renowned museums in Florence and Sienna are sure to be highlights of this fabulous adventure. Late afternoons and evenings will be spent with positive critiques and the chance to relax and enjoy optional Opera Appreciation lectures with video performances and other special seasonal events. To top it all off, at the end of the trip we will have an exhibition of the group’s paintings.
