Skill Level



Since students will be working in a variety of mediums, please come prepared to work for three days with enough paint, canvas or paper and brushes. If you have questions about supplies you may email Frances directly at

This workshop will provide an opportunity to focus on imagery derived from observation or photographs. Landscape, botanical illustration, the figure or interiors, we will reexamine this imagery through the lens of imagination.

Working with the elements of color, scale, form and composition students will continue to develop their personal visual vocabulary. There will be a PowerPoint presentation the first meeting and students will be asked to bring one or two sketches or paintings to jumpstart the conversation with the instructor. Oil, watercolor or acrylic are all suitable mediums for this workshop.
