One obstacle that many of us experience when starting a new work is getting caught up in the details of our compositions. This two-day workshop is designed with a unique approach that encourages aspiring and experienced artists to simplify in those early stages. Focusing on value and composition, it is a fun and easy way to step into painting for the first time or refine your painting methods.

Using exercises and demos, Janet will present concepts that students will then apply with guidance from the instructor. Working from reference photos, students will create preliminary studies to gain a better understanding of value, composition, and color choices and the impact it has on their work. The class is energetic, highly interactive and individualized to student needs. This is a great jump-start for those pursuing their passion for painting.
