Mark making workshop for artists that want to loosen up their painting style...

This is no ordinary afternoon soap opera. This is a workshop to embrace the fear of the bold, be dazzled by the beautiful and doing it all with a big brush. Piddly, little, scratchy brush marks be gone!

Learn how to use the dexterity of your hands and the bristles in your brush. One brush can be more expressive then a whole arsenal of your teeny-weenies.

Learn when to add mediums and to layer your paint with juicy brush marks.

Bring confidence into your work because you have the knowledge of how to use your tools of your trade…. Your Brushes!

Oil and Acrylic Painters Welcome!
