PAINTING WORKSHOPS

Moving Water: This workshop will focus on waves and how to paint them realistically.

Local Landscapes: Wade will take you through the fundamentals of landscape painting from photos of popular North San Diego scenes.

Tropical Wavescapes: Wade will take you through fundamentals of painting tropical scenes in his familiar style of dreamscapes.

Plein Air: Painting outdoors ("plein air") is a challenging and rewarding method of painting. There is no better way for you to see your subject than to physically stand before it! Participants must have a French Easel or other plein air painting easel. You will also want to bring a way to transport your wet painting from the location. Acrylic or oil are both acceptable. Other than an easel, the same supply list for studio workshops applies.

STANDARD WORKSHOPS: $55

PRIVATE OR SEMI-PRIVATE LESSONS: $150

MAXIMIZE YOUR PROGRESS WITH A 3-WORKSHOP DEAL: $145

Please get in touch!

Supply List and address will be emailed to you. You can use either acrylic or oils. See supply list for colors. Bring brushes, canvas, and a water container for acrylics. Easels will be supplied.

The goal of each workshop is to leave with a completed painting. If you are not comfortable painting wet into wet with oils, we recommend using acrylic.

(If you’d like us to provide supplies it is an additional $30 per class.)
