Normally a workshop lasts for 5 consecutive days. We have a morning session where we work on a practice canvas, learning the individual techniques of loading and applying the paint to canvas. This would include building mountains, creating various types of trees, making tappy grass and reflections. At the end of the practice session we clean the canvas so it can be used the following morning. Then we break for lunch. In the afternoon we apply the learned skills to a painting that the student takes home. Each day we build on previous skills and at the end of the week, most students are able to create beautiful painting on their own. While it is best to have classes on consecutive days, we can adjust schedules to fit individual needs.
Below is a slide show showing some of the finished paintings from one of my Arizona Workshops.
