April 17-19 Austin, TX contact
Spring in Austin is beautiful and we will be holding the workshop at the spacious gallery in the Ampersand facility in Buda, just outside of Austin. I love teaching in Austin because we have a wonderful group that returns every year. I hope you can join us. The Ampersand folks have generously offered their facility for this inaugural workshop. We will have lots of room to create and boy do I have a lot of fun treats for you all. Ampersand is even providing panels. I am calling this workshop the Painters Dance because it is all about the interaction between the paint and the surface. We will work with 3 different surfaces and lots of acrylic mediums. Sign up soon. $425.

We had such a great class in 2014 and I am looking forward to seeing some familiar faces along with some new ones in 2015. I will be bringing new techniques, mediums and surfaces. This class is going to take you to the next level, yet beginners are always welcome. We will layer different transparent transfers between clear layers of acrylic. I will show you the amazing attributes of panel painting and I will be bringing different surfaces to work on, including cast acrylic. I am also going to be pushing you to loosen up and work spontaneously and large. We will have some great group exercise to follow.

June 9-12 Santa Fe, NM Studio
This is my annual June Retreat. I have some new ideas planned for this 4 day workshop. This class is limited to the first 8 artists and we will have time to develop some larger paintings. We will take time to work with the layers and create acrylic "wax" look. We will also work with plaster and real wax. Experience both. I think this class will be a hit. I have taught this as two different one day sold out classes and the extra time will allow us to work more in depth. $650 includes all your supplies! Register
