Summer Critique 2024

Each month, a prompt based on concepts learned from the Composition Bootcamp class will be assigned.  Students will choose their own subjects and media to use in completing the prompt. 

By limiting these sessions to no more than 5 students, we have the luxury of time to explore the work completed each month.  Offered in a 3 month block, each student has the opportunity to take in and act upon gentle suggestions to show growth and development in their work over time. As with all my classes, recordings will be available for later review. 

Summer 2024 -Wednesday June 26, Thursday July 25,  Thursday August 22; from 3pm to 4pm Pacific Time.

Gouache Redux Private Class

Critique sessions: Sundays time TBD


Course description:

This private class (limited only to our critique group members) will explore beginning as well as advanced techniques in gouache handling.  It’s definitely a different wet media…it has unique properties that differ from watercolor and in many ways is more similar to oil painting, but without the fuss of clean up with terpenoids.  Based on our understandings of composition (all those Master classes you took) we will also play with going further in exploring development of content and design.   We will have additional Sunday critique sessions to hammer out issues, celebrate successes and discuss strategies to further our work.
