Fine Art Portrait Artist

Classes & Workshops

Michelangelo (1475-1564) said, " A man paints with his brains and not with his hands."

In Europe Art is taught as part of the curriculum. The desire to draw and paint is the first step to achieving a goal. 
You don't have to be 'gifted', you just have to have a mind ready to learn.  Teaching people to 'think like an artist' is my specialty.
I enjoy seeing how each person learns and helping them to translate the techniques in their minds.

SATURDAY: We will greet the morning (sunrise) with a painting (or two) outdoors paintings in Ashland. 
At 1:00 we will drive to Brookings on the Oregon coast, where we will spend the night.  Sunset will be near 8:30 and we will meet to go to dinner together.
SUNDAY: We will again greet the  morning sunrise with a painting location outdoors and finish by 10:30.  At this time, we will have a critique for those who want it and then closure to our fun adventure by noon. 
Please take this the rest of Sunday to visit this area.  It is so BEAUTIFUL!  Fresh air, the elevation is only about 1400 ft. in the Applegate Valley.  The fall will be cool and wonderful. 
MONDAY:  If you wish to caravan or carpool, Enjoy your day.  Leave at your leisure or caravan/carpool with other students. 

I will give you a short lecture Friday afternoon about the basic overview of the concepts of painting from life and doing landscapes with depth.  
We will be specifically looking at the wonderful outdoor scenery of the wooded countryside, the towns from above, and the coastal beaches, and natural habitat. It's all very gorgeous.
Capturing the Fall landscape will be a beautiful and fairly easy subject with all of its unique qualities. 
I have a pop up awning for cover if it rains! 
Enjoy the fresh air, beautiful landscape, and great company of other like minded artists!  
I will lead you in painting 3-6 paintings over the course of the three days.
We will paint 2-4 on Saturday and another 1-2 the next morning before we head home. 

Do bring lots of layers as well as sweaters or light jackets for the coast.
If you are interested in seeing a show while there, my understanding is that it's very hard to get tickets.  Please do share information if you find a way to get tickets! Shows are fun and Sunday night would be prime for a show in Ashland.

Friday: Arrive by 4 PM -  After settling in we will meet and get acquainted with each other.  We will meet for dinner and a short lecture/demo to get things started.
SATURDAY:  We traditionally get up for a sunrise painting.  Due to the temperatures in Tahoe, we may choose to paint indoors from a window - but that is up to the group choice.  This will be an option throughout the weekend if it is stormy outdoors; we can adapt to painting indoor subjects or through the windows if the weather is bad.  Lunch will be up to you as yesterday.  We will find a great spot to paint for the afternoon by 1:30.   And then have dinner together. 
SUNDAY: We will again greet the morning with a painting location outdoors and finish by 9:30.  At this time, we will have a critique for those who want it and then closure to our fun adventure.  Check out time is 11AM.

We will be specifically looking at the wonderful outdoor scenery of the lake, mountainous hills, majestic trees, and natural habitat. 
Capturing the winter landscape will be a beautiful and fairly easy subject with all of its unique qualities. 
Hopefully we will have good weather.
Enjoy the fresh air, beautiful landscape, and great company of other like minded artists!
