Service Description

A comprehensive, deep-diving overview of applying the philosophy that – your art is a manifestation of what you observe (eyes), combined with your emotional response (heart), and the expression of it with your hand. Develop your skills in this four-day intensive. You will dig deeper into how to express your subjects using an intuitive approach, while working with your unique voice. For artists working in a realistic, impressionistic, or expressionistic style. All 2-D mediums are welcome. Natasha’s expertise is in oil, pastel, and watercolor. But the principles of composition, color, temperature, and value are applicable to all. You will explore materials, methods, and techniques to help you represent your subject. This workshop is about learning to paint in your own unique voice. It is not a formula to teach all students to paint the same way. Through demonstration, discussion, and abundant studio time, you will take your personal path towards being the one-of-a-kind artist you are meant to be. As former students attest -- Natasha’s singular goal is for you to leave a better artist, a better version of YOU. Some prior knowledge of your medium is required, however, weekenders, hobbyists as well as professionals, will gain personal power and artistic awareness. Everyone will “start where they are.” Max participants: 10 Registration includes lunch and refreshments.
