This in-house workshop is best suited for the experienced beginner, intermediate and advanced painters.

So, you’ve always wanted to be a rock star! This workshop focuses on techniques rendering waterfalls and rocks. Is this music to your ears? Sam will discuss the importance of understanding the characteristics of both water and rocks. Editing the composition will also be discussed and “rock solid” tips on using various tools and techniques to effectively capture water and rock subject matter. Artists can use their preferred medium.

Image will be provided by the instructor. However, students are expected to bring their own printed copies or work from tablets or devices. More experienced artists can use their own images if they prefer.
