Art Classes Austin / Art Retreats

My Art Workshops/Art Retreats Austin

In my painting and/or drawing workshops and our retreats, I stroll from student to student, giving feedback, answering questions, guiding you all the way with enthusiasm and support!

Would you like to try a variety of subject matter or just the one of your choice? It’s up to you with my workshops! Explore abstraction with expert guidance on “what makes for quality and interest in the work of Modern Masters?” Or venture into the most sumptuous still life you never knew you could produce!

An expressive portrait of a loved one? – Do you know how to do this? I can teach you at whatever level you are, or what you’d choose to achieve! We’ll cover the basics thoroughly, if you haven’t had them; or pick up where you left off with individual growth in whatever medium you choose. You will be able to visit art museums with a deeper understanding of what is involved in “making good art!”

For painting beginners: Color theory and all the other formal elements of good design and expression, if you haven’t had them; or in Drawing we will explore shading, line, contour, perspective, techniques, proportion, and the many styles of drawing with a variety of tools and mediums (charcoal, pencil, pastels, ink, etc.)!

The Studio Environment

At my Studio, students may choose to paint or draw outdoors, along the spring-fed creek, around the pool, resting comfortably along the sprawling porches, in the shade of large trees, along the creek or Colorado River. Or in the winter, there’s an outdoor fireplace to warm by! Or in warmer weather, I’ll guide each student in my spacious studio, with individual attention to your levels of expertise and what you’d most like to learn, explore and perfect!
