In this Spring workshop, we will focus on painting landscapes. Participation is limited, ensuring each participant receives good instruction throughout. Each student will work at their own pace with individual attention during the painting process.



Through the course of the 5 classes, you will be developing various skills and techniques of seeing and painting. Class participants will also receive a bonus: an invitation for a group plein air session with me on the Santa Cruz Coast in late May or June. – mh

This 2022 Class Series is completed.

This class is intended to expand your knowledge base for creating a strong landscape painting.

Prerequisite: Prior painting experience in any medium.
You will be contacted by Michele soon after your registration is received.

Learning to see is one of the primary skills an artist develops over time. Participants will work on grouping masses into major values within the composition. Value is the light and dark tones that exist because of sunlight. Michele will also address the various light sources found in nature and how these change the temperature of objects. Learning how to interpret this light in paint is also a skill we will work on in the workshop.

How you arrange major objects on your canvas defines your composition. Michele will discuss major compositional designs. Artists do not have to be slaves to their photographic images, and have the freedom to move objects to create an interesting design. Participants will have time to explore different design possibilities of their favorite image in both its format and the arrangement of major shapes.

We will meet each Thursday morning at my Soquel studio, where the classes will be held. You will need all your painting supplies on the first day – including easel, paints, brushes, cleanup supplies, etc. A full materials list will be sent as soon as you are registered. You will be given access to my Scholar Pages once you register. These pages will include various class notes as we go along and reference materials prepared for my students.
