Painting without guessing means that every artist needs to master four items:
-Color mixing
-Moisture control

In this workshop, students will learn how to mix colors in a simple way, gain an understanding of how colors and values work together, learn the three steps of controlling moisture, and learn how to compose a painting by learning about the negative and positive areas (the principles of composition).

Each student will be given a project to work on, and they will see six or seven small demos each day.  With each demo, students will learn how to start and finish a painting.

This workshop will employ the “quiet room” technique so that every student may put their energy into learning and painting without a lot of noise.
