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:

Working Together: Expressive Drawing and Abstract Figurative Painting

A collaboration with Sefla Joseph and Evelyn Markasky



This workshop will be at Nancy Telfer’s Studio, #106 at the Tannery Art Studios, 1050 River St, Santa Cruz, CA 95060

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

We are sharing this workshop to experience interpreting the figure back to the source. As a study in abstract figurative painting, we are exploring and expanding the sources of your creativity and personal vision. 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 you up with lines and images using a live model. 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 paint free and strong!
