Teaching

We make art to wake up ourselves, our colleagues, the world. As rigorous as any inner-oriented discipline, visual art reflects the maker’s life philosophy, personal temperament, and aspirations.

Teaching is the job of leading students to make connections, between their life stories and the greater world, to guide their research in both learning physical processes and mining their personal experiences.

As a teacher I aim for several fits: the match of medium to the individual’s skills, temperament, and goals; integrating material and message; understanding one’s nature and place on the continuum between spontaneity and control; and the balance between the intuitive impulse and its physical manifestation.

My class plans are structured to provide the framework necessary to acquiring technical skills and tools that allow students to experiment with confidence. I also emphasize the need to articulate one’s intentions through written exercises.

Upcoming Workshops

North Mayo, Ireland:
Landscape in Watercolor & Watercolor Monotype, March 26 – April 5, 2022

The magnificent Mayo landscape is the focus of this water media-based workshop. We will paint locally outdoors and make watercolor monotypes indoors.

Watercolor is the art of visualizing colored light and manipulating water and gravity; it is a balancing act between spontaneity and control. We will cover the fundamental aspects of working with watercolor through demonstrations and exercises. Individual attention and group discussions will enhance the participant’s personal response to the medium.

Watercolor monotype combines the translucence and flowing marks of watercolor with the surprises and freshness of printmaking. Explore as you print with watercolor on plexiglass for an exciting combination of luminosity and complex color layering. Watercolor monotypes are just like other monotypes in as much as they produce single, unique images. However, the image is made with watercolors painted on plexiglass. The artist can manipulate wet pigment washes, wipe them away, use stencils etc. during the drawing process. We will make "one-pass" through the press prints, ghost prints and multi-layered images.
