What to expect in my classes & workshops

Above all, you’ll experience a class that is both fun and informative. It is my earnest desire to help every student to grow and learn quickly.

All of my classes & workshops combine demonstrations, one-on-one instruction and objective advice in a way that allows students at all ability levels to make great progress in a very short time.

My approach focuses on providing information and insights to each individual – meeting them where they are and helping them get to where they want to go.

My firm belief is that fundamental skills are important, particularly for a tricky medium like watercolor. So every class and workshop has a strong focus on the fundamentals, presented in a way that makes them simple and understandable.

Powerful and expressive paintings result from purposeful design and good technique – both subjects are covered in my classes.

…an artist’s dreamscape…

Tuscany has been described as an artist’s dream-scape.

For many of us, it will be a new landscape with a new look.  Our workshop will focus on getting to know a new and unfamiliar scene using exploratory sketches and new techniques.  New subjects and scenery may inspire you find new ways to create compositions, try new colors and color combinations, and expand your technical range. All of which may lead to your own artistic “renaissance”.

Additional Activities: Our daily painting will be combined with other adventures:  Day trip to Medieval Siena to sketch, take photos, explore and shop; Excursions to the nearby hill towns Chianti winery tour and tasting; Discussions of Tuscan cuisine with our chef

Each day will end with a return to our lodgings for a glass of wine and an informal critique of the day’s work. Followed by an authentic, home-made Tuscan meal.
