A Visual Guide To Painting
Many artists tend to be visual learners. Meaning they learn by watching and doing more than they do by reading a written description. Being a Special Educator for over 20 years introduced me to the concept of multiple means of acquiring knowledge. Knowing this and and using task analysis to break large concepts into smaller chunks allowed me to develop a step by step process for successful skill building in painting.
That is what a Visual Learners Guide to Painting is. I created it over a period of years for myself and now share it on line and in the studio. This is a 10 step curriculum that will make your paintings better, more impactful with the emphasis on the basics of good painting not the technical challenges many books concentrate on. Simpler is better.
Whenever possible I find the fun and joy in painting and communicate that in these lessons. It is important to take things seriously but to also enjoy the learning process.
The concepts covered include
Value , color mixing, composition and a strategic method for creating a simple map to follow for every painting so that there is a clear plan from the beginning to end . I know from experience that painting can be taught and learned. Every person who has entered my studio has left feeling like an artist. I have seen the transformation over and over and over again.
People are surprised to find out there is a different and simpler way to approach painting in a highly visual systematic way.
