Workshops and Classes

Painting Bootcamp (Oil or Acrylic)
Thursday Mornings 9:30-12:30. September 26- November 2, 6 weeks. At the Logan Heights Athenaeum at Bread and Salt (San Diego, CA, USA) Sign up here

We will explore several approaches to direct painting (also called alla prima) and indirect painting (layered painting.) Emphasis will be given to accurately drawing big shapes, composition/design, color, and value. The instructor will demonstrate each method of working. In the first weeks of class, we will work from still life to practice each technical approach. In the last weeks of class, we will apply those techniques to studio work of the student’s choosing, plein air landscape, or instructor-supplied imagery. This course is suitable for beginning and intermediate students. The goal is to introduce the student to a comprehensive skill set to best serve their personal artistic goals and vision.
