December Art Workshops in Beaufort and Charleston

I will be teaching 2 workshops while in Charleston in December.... a Painting the Landscape Workshop in Oil and Pastel in Charleston, and an evening pastel workshop, Drawing in Color, in Beaufort. Hope to see you there!

Painting the Landscape in Oil and Pastel 
at The Artists' Loft, Charleston, SC 

Friday/Saturday, December 2nd/3rd
9:00-4, Friday/ 9:00-3 Saturday

Intensive, fun workshop for those artists with some experience working in oil or pastel. Students will work on the fundamentals of how to create a more dynamic painting by making more interesting compositions, learning to use "value" more effectively, and using color in exciting ways to make a big impact. Learn methods of planning your painting from choosing subject matter to editing reference photos, to how to critique your own paintings. There will be lots of individual instruction and demos throughout the workshop. Questions? email Susan at
