Workshops


Interested in taking a class or a workshop to learn more about abstract painting?  I am offering two types of classes.  The first format is a one-day, three-hour introduction to abstraction. The second is a three-day workshop for artists interested in pushing themselves further; those who want to work bolder or larger and want to learn to let go of perfectionism. 

There are no dates for these workshops because I can do them anytime... you make the group and I will teach it!

 

YOU MAKE THE GROUP and I WILL TEACH IT!

“Anne has a succinct and embracing teaching style that encourages our own decision making.  She introduced us to the personality of this media and encouraged us to stay loose and not get lost in the details.  Thanks Anne!”

“I learned a lot about composition and mixing color and also gained some confidence to create. 

"Anne helped me to learn about balance, values, and moving the eye around a piece.  I also learned how to mix colors to match the ones I had mixed before.  This class was a perfect mix of demonstrations, discussions, critiques, work time, and one on one attention. Anne is a wonderful teacher!”

“One of the best workshops that I have been to; low key and full of meaningful information.  Anne’s Demonstrations were just right – not too long winded.  She gave the right amount of information – much more and it would have been difficult to synthesize it.  During our individual work time, Anne never hovered but was always around and helpful.”

“Thanks, Anne for a great workshop!  It was the perfect length for gaining the necessary information; a good intro to several ways to approach abstraction.  The demos were good and a good length.  Anne left us plenty of time to work on our own, incorporating a nice combo of demo and critiques.  Anne constantly rotated through the students giving personal feedback while encouraging individual styles.”

“What a pleasure!  The class was well organized.  For me it was a little scary at first, but Anne was so encouraging that I can’t wait to do more at home.  I learned more about painting abstractly and what makes a great piece as well as how to harmonize my colors.  The demonstrations were just right and included a bit of history.  The individual attention was very generous.  Thanks!”
