Saturday 9AM–3PM
Sunday 1PM-4PM
Tuition: $290
Deposit: $100 with balance due October 1
Supplies: $40.00

Learn how to:

  • Keep your color clean

  • Avoid overworking your paintings

  • Compose when painting from life

  • Add drama with value, color and edges

  • Be free from the anxiety of a blank, white canvas in front of you

  • How to have more fun while painting!

Pamela’s approach to painting will be demonstrated with focus on creating dramatic compositions and encouraging loose, bold brushwork. We will be practicing indoors by painting from live settings. Using demonstrations, presentation and incorporating individual attention into the structure of the workshop, Pamela will help to embolden each artist to push themselves to  experiment with techniques they might never have tried. Pamela hopes each artist will leave her workshop inspired to continue pursuing their personal artistic growth and striving to focus on experiencing joy in the journey.
