Winter Workshops

I'm super excited to be kicking off 2018 with a couple of local workshops as well as several at Art and Soul in Portland, OR. I hope that you can join me.


January and the Round Hill Arts Center
In January, I'll be teaching two local workshops at the Round Hill Arts Center in Round Hill, VA.

This Friday, January 12th, I'll be teaching an Intuitive Painting class from 6:30pm - 9:30pm. In this take on the popular paint night, we'll explore intuitive mark making, line, and color mixing as we mix and blend, play and explore with paint.

On Sunday, January 28, I'll be teaching Artful Layers from 1pm - 4pm. This mixed-media class is all about building rich layers with simple materials, like watercolor, ink, and collage. We'll explore several working methods for creating layers of meaning.


February and Art and Soul
I'll be heading to Portland, OR in February to teach at Art and Soul again. I'll be offering two new classes, plus a repeat of a class from last year.

On Monday, February 12, from 6:30pm - 9:30pm, I'll teach Stencil Savvy. I taught this popular class at last year's Art and Soul in Portland and Virginia Beach, so I thought I'd do it again. This class is all about learning the basics to hand cut stencils using a heavy duty stencil film.

Tuesday, February 13, brings Monster Maker Workshop from 6:30pm - 9:30 pm. I've been joyfully creating monsters over the past few years, and I've taught this as a kids class. But I'm very excited to bring my monsters to an adult audience. We'll be focusing on drawing, painting, and collaging monsters in this evening workshop.

Finally, on Wednesday, February 14, I'll be teaching the all-day workshop Luminous Liquid Layers from 9am - 4:30pm. This class was a hit at several workshops in VA and NC last spring, and now I'm bringing it to Art and Soul. This class is all about using liquid acrylic paint to build layers using a wide variety of non-traditional techniques like rolling, scraping, stamping, and much more.

I hope that you can join me for one of these awesome workshops. If not, there's still plenty more to come. Check out the JFJ Events and Workshops page for an updated listings of all the workshops for 2018.
