NEW!!  COMPOSITION - What to do with each subject          9:30 - 3:30       $175
Feb.24th - 25th,     Held at:  Art Garden Studio, 500 Wanda Place, Nokomis, FL
Often a good painting could be much better if the composition was stronger.  
And in many cases it’s the composition that makes the painting.  So how do
you design a great composition with each subject having different needs?  
This workshop will explain each topic clearly.
What makes this workshop unique from others is that visual references shown
have been gathered from many sources and styles so that you have a broader
understanding of how to design a good composition.  The class size of 10 max.
is purposefully small to give the most attention and instruction.  Each day certain
subjects will be discussed with many images shown as examples.  You will draw
thumbnails as a tool to capture the important points of each composition. The
students will be asked to bring one photograph reference or artwork of each
subject to be discussed.  The group will analyze that reference and apply what
was just learned.   FULL, Please inquire for a 2nd session.
1st day:   Landscape,  Pathways,  Boats,  Flowers,  Still Life
2nd day: Architecture,  Portraiture,  People,  The Wall,  Animal Portraits

Abstracts with Words & Emotions  1-day                9:30 – 4:00        $115
Location:  Art Garden Studio, 500 Wanda Place, Nokomis
Did you want to get your feelings out onto your painting surface with abandonment?
Using words is very powerful, so experience that power and transform it into a
wonderful abstract painting. You will be lead through a series of steps to create
your painting using slower breathing, writing/painting word and finally composing
in color to bring your emotions into a complete artwork.  This is a VERY unique
workshop so the
class size is limited to 4.  
Jan. Feb. March are FULL   
Apr. 6th - 2 spots available.
