Classes, Workshops, and Demos

These are the classes, demos and workshops I am currently offering.  This will be updated regularly.  You can also join my mailing list if you would like to be updated on future classes. 

You can also find a list of current and upcoming classes with me on the Golden Website

If you have a group of friends that would like to take the class together, I accept group bookings.  Group minimum size is three people and I can accommodate up to 20 people currently with enough notice.

All materials are included in the price of my classes.  I don’t use student grade.  You will work with professional grade supplies, giving you the chance to work with some of the best tools and paints.  Professional paints will give you the highest pigment levels, limit the color shift in your paints, and the widest color range. 

Feel free to contact me directly if you have more questions.

Don't be scared, it's only paint!  In this workshop, students will have the chance to create their own adorable or scary little monsters.

Pop Surreal Faces - Demo (two time slots)

Opus Granville Island - Two demo times

I will be demonstrating how I paint my delicate pop surreal faces. I will start with the first steps of the underpainting and blocking in with Heavy Body Acrylics.

Private Tutoring

If you are an artist that would like very specific one on one tutoring to help you reach that next level or get over a obstacle you might be facing.  One on one tutoring is great for artists wishing to have one on one time with me to help get you past a roadblock you may be hitting.  I can help you in whatever area you might feel you need work on.

Tutoring sessions $40 per hour (2 hour minimum per session)

Tutoring Consultation

If you would like a consultation to discuss where you would like to go with your work.  You can bring in some pieces you have as examples to me and I can discuss with you what areas I would be able to help you during our sessions.  A 30 minute consultation is $15. You are under no obligation to book a tutoring session after our meeting if you feel the fit doesn’t work for the direction you are wanting to take your art.
