Learning to paint watercolor portraits of young children is one of the many challenges of painting. In November, I'll be teaching a weekend workshop for people who want to learn how to better paint children's portraits. The dates are Nov. 14 and 15, a Saturday and Sunday, and it will be held in my teaching studio near Lawrenceburg, Indiana, close to Cincinnati, Ohio.

We'll work each day from 9:30 to 5 with every artist creating watermedia paintings from their own photographs of children. (In other words, it won't be a 'paint-along-with-the-teacher kind of class, but an 'I-painted-this-myself' kind of accomplishment!)

People who struggle with drawing will certainly find good success using the ideas and methods in this workshop. Cost is $140. Bring a sack lunch along with your regular art supplies. Working on Arches 140#Cold Pressd or Fabriano 140# Cold Pressed will be a must, and if you need it, I will have some paper available for sale at $4.75/22x30" sheet, plus tax. Many artists are likely to paint several portraits during the workshop, and all will go home with the expertise to pursue painting portraits on their own.

Contact me here to find out more info. It will be a weekend full of inspiration, discovery, and hard work, and I know we'll have a very good time. Hope you can join us.
