Join nationally recognized wildlife artist Gary Johnson for a three day painting workshop. This workshop is designed to help improve your ability to accurately paint wildlife and to place your subjects in a compositionally pleasing portrait or landscape setting. Having a small sized class will allow the participants to receive personalized lessons that will build strengths and correct weaknesses in all areas, including composition (design, color, and values), anatomy, self-critiqueing, and technical aspects of painting animals (feathers, fur, eyes, etc.). Also, a lecture will be given on the business of art and how to market your work.

Students are required to bring all of the painting supplies of the chosen medium they want to work with, including canvas and/or paper. Students should bring two painting ideas or photo subjects to work on during the workshop. Students should bring 3-5 completed paintings for a group critique.

Cost is $350 per person with a minimum of 7 students
