I teach on-going painting classes and 8-week workshops in Color Theory and Composition at The Art Student’s League of Denver. 

The content for my painting classes, Luminous Color with Underpainting and Glazing is much the same as for my workshop of the same title. 

Luminous Color with Underpainting and Glazing is for anyone who is interested in learning to use underpainting and glazing techniques. Students set up their own simple still lifes with materials that I provide, and then I photograph them.  The students then work from those photos and their own drawings to create paintings that use underpainting and glazing techniques. 

Color Theory I: How not to be a color victim is an 8-week workshop that covers most of the material described for my Color Confidence workshop. 

Color Theory 2:  Controlling the Expressive Qualities of Your Colors is also an 8-week workshop that builds upon the skills learned in my Color Theory 1 class and delves deeper into the expressive qualities of color and the control that you have with a limited palette. 

Composition 1: The Elements of Design is an 8-week workshop that explores elements of design.  The principles and elements of design are the tools artists use to create images that are expressive and cohesive.  In this class we will consider the elements only: line, shape, edges, space, light, texture and color.  These are the building blocks for creating images.  You will learn about the elements through slide presentations and projects, so that you can see how the elements of design can work for you in your images.  

Composition 2:  The Principles of Design is an 8-week workshop that explores the principles of design.  The principles of design consider how the elements are put together to build a unified and compelling image.  Working with the elements and principles is like juggling, but it can be fun, and very rewarding when you know how to use them.  There will be slide presentations and projects for you to do so that you can learn how to use the principles in meaningful and exciting ways in your images. 

You can find out the schedule for these classes by visiting the website for The Art Student’s League of Denver, www.asld.org.  The easiest way to find the classes that I teach is to use the link to faculty, then find my name and click on it.
