“The Joy of Painting”, Acrylic, with Jane Slivka


All Levels
Workshop Supply List

In my workshop, you will experience the freedom that this medium has to offer. I will demonstrate my painting techniques and we will create paintings that are vibrant and exciting. My workshop is presented in a relaxed atmosphere where you will be encouraged to explore your own potential. I love free expression, strong brush strokes and exciting colors. I will show you how these elements will translate into the beautiful florals, still-lifes and landscapes that we will be creating in this workshop. I will demonstrate how to have painting freedom and not loose the important elements of balance and good design.
