I love to teach painting. Most of my students are beginning to intermediate painters. I teach oil and acrylic painting. The workshops are held in various places in North San Diego County, usually in the evenings (except for plein air workshops) and sometimes on weekends. Most of my workshops are what I call “Introduction to Landscape Painting”. This is an easy format where I select photographs as reference for the students - photos that have been taken by me and proven to guide the artist to a solid and thoughtful composition. The classes are generally no more than 8 or 9 people (often smaller). Our Plein Air workshops are held in spots in North SD County, scenes I have often painted- places that are easy to get to, although “off the beaten path”, where we won’t be inundated with on-lookers. In these tranquil settings we work on “painting from life”, how to SEE the landscape and create from it an inspired sketch. The emphasis is on COMPOSITION, COLOR and VALUES. The current schedule is on our website in the “News and Events” section. Shoot us an email or call us if you have any questions.
