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.
