We will go beyond putting down lines and filling colors, working towards creating depth and color harmony in two 3-day workshops:


August 13-15

The different effects of various underpainting approaches

Three dye thickeners and the advantages of each

Dye dispersion formulas

Layering of imagery and palimpsest


August 17-19

Color theory and practice: creating accents and harmony

How to add depth to your composition

Use of stencils (purchased or hand-made) 

Option to make your own stencils

Each 3-day class is $450. 

Both 3-day classes are $750 


There will be studio access on our free day, August 16.


A Materials List of what to bring will be provided upon registration.

Materials Fee: $15. To be collected in class for additional products.


Each one’s uniqueness is the point of these exploratory sessions; to honor and encourage each person to move towards their own best work.

A student scholarship for a young Mendocino or Fort Bragg artist between the ages of 20-45 is available.
