Brighten up Jan. and Feb. 2018 Studio workshops

Studio workshop Line up for Jan. and Feb. 2018

The PRINCIPLES and FUNDAMENTALS of Drawing and Painting SERIES
(and a lot more)

These workshops are geared for the beginner and for those with experience. A clear understanding of the fundamentals and principles of art is the foundation for creating strong authentic and technically sound art. Reviewing helps to build on your previous knowledge and it is recommended.
The concepts may be the same but my depth of understanding expands as I evolve in my experience as an artist and in life. Change is constant and you too are in a different place as you were before.
