Dancing Tulips - independent learning

Workshop lesson

3 day focused online workshop, please refer to the schedule below.

Access to all content after the course begins for a period of 3 months after the workshop.

  • Not only a Zoom meeting
  • Go deep into the creative process, and even further than what we can do in an in person workshop.

Different than a 6-week course or many other Zoom only workshops

  • Go well beyond basic instruction.
  • Learn even more than what I am able to provide in my in person workshops.
  • 3 days focused on a single painting via recorded videos along with live meetings
  • Live troubleshooting meetings twice a day to ensure progress.
  • If you cannot attend meetings, the pre-recorded video lessons are available for 2 months from enrollment date.
  • Reference photo and to scale line drawing are provided, we will be painting on a half sheet of paper, (15x22 inches)
  • Lessons are downloadable.

Over the duration of the workshop we will meet in the morning, view the lessons, Q&A, then you paint, check in again later, to view your progress and problem solve.

In many ways, this is actually better than in person workshops, I am right there on your table, ask questions as needed and have access to the lessons for 3 months.

Meeting length will be determined by the questions, and recorded so you can review later.

Just like an person workshop

We will meet for the introduction, then on your own watch the video lesson for the day, if you like return for a review and Q&A, then start painting. Later that same day, we will meet again to make sure you're on track. You will also be able to contact me during the day at an optional drop in for any Questions you may have.
