VIRTUAL INTENSIVE WORKSHOP

March 25- March 27, 1:00-4:00pm CDT

 $250/person

Starts are fun, finishes more difficult. In this follow up virtual workshop, students will focus on finishing paintings and design. Learn with Pat, as she discusses the possibilities for each of her many starts. Watch her totally change a painting using acrylic paints, add more inks or watercolors to a start or end up cropping. Pat will discuss design while she works and why she makes certain decisions. She will also discuss value, which is often the reason why a painting doesn’t work or get into a show. Pat will provide tips and rules to follow as you paint. The workshop will be intense and informative, but not boring! You will leave with renewed vigor and ways to finish your starts.  Ages 18+
