For some that may mean inspiring conversation on topics that relate to your work. For others it may mean tips or demos on materials and tools that fine-tune your technique or improve a specific piece. Dan will regularly give demonstrations, share references from his personal library of over 500 books, lead critiques, and give museum tours when the need arises.

Building a Better Landscape

Date/Time: 4 Tuesdays, May 1 – 22, 6:30 PM – 9:00 PM

Landscape painting can be tough, because there is so much to put into each painting! This class will focus on a 3-step approach to watercolor painting that provides a process for problem solving, no matter what the subject. You will learn how to simplify your subject so that you put in only what is necessary to tell your story. The class will focus on concepts of value, intensity and color temperature along with some basic landscape composition. Color solutions will be explored using structured color schemes that help keep color fresh and vibrant. This process will help to loosen up your technique, while at the same time teaching important painting concepts that apply across all media.
