I've been honored to teach workshops and jury art exhibitions for art groups around the country. To discuss a three- to five-day watercolor portrait and figure workshop in your area, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or 412.951.9144.
Most of the workshops are appropriate for beginner to advanced levels, although the material will be challenging for students who have never worked in watercolor. The lessons are taught through demos, lecture, presentation, one-on-one instruction, and group critiques. The workshop can be tailored to your group's experience level and interest.

MAY 14-18 / NIAGARA FRONTIER WATERCOLOR SOCIETY / EDEN, NY
"GOING BEYOND A LIKENESS"
Watercolor workshop for all levels
Students go beyond mere portraiture and the goal of achieving a likeness. We will delve into the design and planning that are integral in telling a story or communicating an idea. The workshop progresses through the stages of a painting, from initial inspiration and reference material to value and color studies to final painting of a figure or figures. Although students may complete one or several paintings during the course of the workshop, the ultimate goal is not to create a masterpiece, but to experiment with new ideas and techniques and to make plenty of mistakes.
