Classes & Workshops

My abstract figurative classes and workshops are all about getting loose and experiencing the joy of painting. The process involves exploration and discovery. We will work with layering, texture, values, and loose rapid spontaneous brushwork, while searching for the inner life of our figures.

Workshops:

Expressive Drawing & Abstract Figurative Painting Workshop

A collaboration with Sefla Joseph and Evelyn Markasky



This workshop will be at #106 at the Tannery Art Studios, 1050 River St, Santa Cruz, CA 95060

Saturday and Sunday, February 8 & 9, 10 am to 3 pm.

It’s all about getting loose and experiencing the joy of painting. We will start off with drawing exercises to connect you with the non-verbal part of your brain, we will loosen up with lines, marks, and scribbles. We will then move into working with layering, texture, values, and loose, rapid, spontaneous brushwork, while searching for the inner life of our figures.

Be ready to surprise yourself!
