Setting up a Pastel Palette and Learning to Mix Colors 
$80 (click)for all four sessions

Online is an affordable alternative to traveling miles and paying for lodging and food. Workshops vary by topic throughout the year. Most meet 1-3 p.m, EST on each Thursday for 4 weeks. Mixing colors with pastels is very different from other mediums. We will discuss four mixing methods as well as various ways to set up a pastel palette. After a short discussion of the topic illustrated with famous examples of art, I do a demo of that week's assignment. Students submit work for critique 

Online $80 for all 4 sessions

Value Painting Techniques

Coming soon in 2024....This workshop will explore values and help students learn to think and see in terms of value rather than color. Learn how to control the range of value rather than color hue to create dramatic paintings and take your art to the next level. Online, 4 sessions, 2-3 hours sessions each Thursday, includes a demo, discussion of concepts, and critiques of student work for those wishing to submit their work for review.
