What to expect in my classes & workshops
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.
