Painting With Fire is a year of 56 new classes                                  (at least one hour long) that will be emailed to you weekly!

There are 27 well known artists who deliver 2 lessons each. (color theory and value, composition, bookmaking, paper sculpture, and more.)

  • Here's a short description:

​I will be teaching two classes, 30 minutes for the mini lesson and an hour or more for the second.

Lesson One:

Intuitive Nature! Garden Inspirations. (30 minutes)

These lessons will focus on the use of thumbnail sketching and viewfinder technique, specifically for observing and considering nature at a variety of scales. 

We will begin in the garden looking at the flowers and foliage creating thumbnails in our sketchbooks inspiration. We will then take those thumbnails and we will add color using collage and a variety of materials. 

Lesson Two: 

Intuitive Nature - Part 2

From the ‘Thumb’ to the Substrate. (1 hour)

We will return to our sketchbooks from Intuitive Nature Part 1 and choose an image(s) and create on to the substrate using encaustic mediums and pigments along with mixed media and a plethora of tools to create and enhance our pieces to create the cultivation and evolution of our own botanical visualizations.
