If your paintings have ever gotten muddy, lacked clarity, or just didn’t have any punch, then let’s talk about making confident brushstrokes with bold colors! In this class, we’ll cover why brushwork and color are vital to the success of a painting. We’ll also go over topics like drawing, values, color theory and many other painting fundamentals.

Day 1 of the workshop will begin with a 30 minute lecture to discuss the core concepts of painting. This will be followed by a 2 hour painting demonstration by Marc. Students are encouraged to ask questions throughout the lecture and demonstration.

The class will have a 1 hour lunch break.

Afterwards, students will begin work on their own paintings while Marc goes around to each student giving individualized instruction. Class will end at 4pm.

Day 2 will begin with a short discussion of the previous day’s work followed by a 3 hour demo. After a 1 hour lunch, students will again be let loose to tackle their own paintings while Marc gives individual instruction.

We will end the workshop with a group critique and review everything we’ve learned, had issues with, and what the next step will be in each of our artistic journey.
