General Info

​I ​am happy to hear you are interested in my​ classes in the DFW area at the Haltom City Rec Center and Thomas Place Community Center We have a lot of fun on our artistic journey together and​ I​ would love to have you join us!

Current workshops conducted include;
    • 2hr Sessions in Drawing – We will do various exercises and drawings to help you learn how to draw what you see. This is a class for all skill levels, even those of you that feel you have little talent and doubt that you could ever learn. I wholeheartedly believe that everyone can learn how to draw and I have seen it happen!
    • 2hr Sessions in PastelD​iscover the unique joys of this powdery ​medium. It is considered both a drawing and a painting medium and is extremely versatile​.​ I can’t tell you how many times I have heard someone say “I have a box of pastels, but I don’t know how to use them”! Take this class and that will change 🙂
    • 2hr Sessions Flow Painting – Pouring, puddling, dripping, swiping… these classes will explore the exciting possibilities in the technique often called Pour Acrylics! At its simplest it is pouring paint across a canvas instead of applying it with a brush. But why stop there? They make gorgeous paintings as is or as a unique background for your next painting and there are ample pour techniques and color combinations to indulge our creative whimsy indefinitely!
      Be prepared to bring your painting home quite wet  – it will continue to develop and dry for at least 24hours.
      Add $10  to the regular price and I will provide all of your supplies!
    • 2&1/2hr  & 4hr Sessions in AcrylicAcrylics are another incredibly versatile and forgiving medium. There are endless techniques to explore and I hope to share as many as I can with you along with color theory and principals of design that thread through all of the classes.
    • ​2 & 4hr  Open StudioSessions – Your Project – Your Passion! Have a project you need help with? Whether acrylic, oil, watercolor, pastels, drawing, mixed media, sculpture ​or more – let me use my many years of experience in the arts to help guide you in your creations. This would also be a great time to enhance a Flow painting or perhaps pour another!​
    • 4hr Sessions in Mixed Media – We will expand on the inherent versatility of acrylics by adding other mediums, specialty papers, 3D embellishments and what ever else suits our fancy! Look for special segments on how to use specific mediums to enhance your creations, especially in the Mixed Media Art journaling classes. Your imagination is your only limitation!
    • 2&1/2 & 4hr Sessions in Sumi-e TechniqueLearn how to capture the essence of a subject with simplicity and spontaneity using traditional sumi brushes and black ink. We’ll begin with a demo of the very meditative process of making ink on a ginding stone and move on to the brush strokes that will evoke the spirit of our subject!
    • 2&1/2hr Sessions in Alcohol Ink  Join us to explore this fast drying, highly pigmented, transparent medium with many exciting possibilities for use. We’ll try myriad application techniques to create vibrant paintings ranging from the abstract to the impressionistic!
