Portland studio $250 for 3 days
Come and paint for the first time or brush up on your skills in my backyard studio or Manzanita.
Small classes allow for individualized attention. I meet you where you're at in your skill level and interests. Focusing on color, light and composition- you will learn color mixing, the value of value and most importantly, the joy of painting. My goal is for you to leave with improved oil painting skills, a better sense of color and an enhanced appreciation for light and shadow.
My background: I have worked with color both as a fine artist and as a professional color designer for an eco-paint company. After founding YOLO Colorhouse, I am back to painting and teaching workshops. An MFA graduate from the School of Visual Arts and former instructor at Marylhurst University and PNCA summer program, I approach teaching with optimism and encouragement. Painting can be intimidating, I want students to find the joy I have found in color and light.
painting Workshops - manzanita, ORegon
September 20 - 23 and October 18 - 21
$300 - 3 days
Come and paint at the beautiful Oregon coast! We have remodeled the garage behind our Manzanita cabin into a painting studio with gorgeous light. We will start each morning with a walk on the beach, then settle into the studio for a morning painting session. After a lunch break, we'll head back into the studio for a few more hours and the rest of the day is yours to explore the area - hike, surf, kayak, go crabbing, or hang out and paint.
Our "Mountain Cabin at the Coast" is in front of the studio and sleeps 6 people. Get a group of friends together, share with other students or rent the whole cabin for yourself - first come, first serve. Or stay in one of many rentals in Manzanita (I can help you with accommodations).
