Upcoming Workshops

The following workshops are scheduled for the next 3 months. For a complete listing of all scheduled workshops, visit the teacher pages for Colin Page and Jessica Ives

Design with Colin Page

September 16-19, 2019

DESIGN will teach you to improve your understanding of composition by organizing values, balancing the canvas, and seeing the scene abstractly. This is the foundation of any good painting, and nearly every painter I know starts the painting process with a lot of compositional planning. I’ll help students find new ways to consider designing a painting, and also how to keep structure in place as a more colorful scene is developed. Set yourself up for success by starting each painting with a good foundation.

Tuition: $900


Color with Colin Page

September 23-26, 2019

COLOR will teach you how to get the most out of your color palette. We will work on seeing more color as we study a scene, and then how to tell the story of those colors. This includes understanding color relationships, mixing color more accurately, and purposeful paint application. Clean and interesting color is the goal here. Color temperature shifts, harmonies and vibrations all add to the way a painting describes light, atmosphere and feeling. We will work on understanding the way color is the emotional heart of a painting.

Tuition: $900


Brushwork with Colin Page

September 30-October 3, 2019

BRUSHWORK will teach you about paint application. Painterly brushwork is a combination of loose and playful mark making, and an intentional application. We’ll work on different ways to add interest to our paintings through a variety of brushwork, and prioritizing the essential parts of the scene. This part of painting is a balance between play and careful thought. It’s about showing how much you love your materials by how you apply the paint.

Tuition: $900
