Workshops & Classes
Have Fun with Fundamentals
Jennifer’s lessons teach traditional painting concepts such as composition, focal areas, and design, with a primary emphasis on values as a path to a successful painting, regardless of the student’s level of experience. These concepts are applied equally to both realistic and abstract paintings. Her teaching blends structured techniques with a looser, more intuitive approach to painting.
Classes are tailored to the individual student’s needs, goals, and experience level. Both beginners and established artists have a great time in Jennifer’s classes and leave with a great painting, and lots of new tips and techniques. Two-day workshops give students the opportunity to immerse themselves in a specific subject matter.
For the remainder of 2019, there will be three 5 to 6-Week Sessions:
Session 1: 6 weeks: Tuesday 8/20 - Thursday 9/26
Session 2: 5 weeks: Tuesday 10/1 - Thursday 10/31
