    Perhaps you’ve learned the basics of painting and you are looking for new inspiration or maybe you have a newly discovered love of painting and you want to work toward making real progress with solid instruction. We invite you to join J. Waid Griffin for three amazing days of painting in the spectacular landscape surrounding Our Lady of Guadalupe Monastery in Pecos, New Mexico. Waid will apply his vast knowledge of landscape painting and guide you through every step toward creating great paintings plein air. Students will receive personal instruction each day on the beautiful grounds of the Monastery with access to studio space for critique and additional painting time in the evening. The lessons will cover many aspects of the process of on location painting such as: how to SEE, how to analyze and depict the light source(s) and how to select your subject. The tuition includes all costs; your room and meals, so all you have to do is eat, sleep, and paint!


    Please sign up early; class size is limited.

    Join Frank in this week-long workshop exploring methods and materials for urban landscape sketching in watercolor. We will begin by learning how to handle watercolor as a sketching tool while studying value and compositional design. We will practice quick on-site sketching and watercolor painting techniques each day as we meet on location (at pre-determined destinations) as well meeting back at the studio for lectures and demonstrations. Students will be encouraged to complete a series of quickly executed sketches/paintings both on-site and in the studio using photos as reference. Principles of composition, color theory, methods and materials will be discussed. Frank will present options for creating your personalized watercolor travel kit. Individual instruction will be given to each student.

    Bring your painting skill to a higher level! Learn how to paint luminous watercolors by manipulating tonal values, color and edge. In this workshop, Frank will share advanced painting techniques to create atmosphere, balance and unity in your work. Topics will include design and composition, color and lighting, positives and negatives, simplification of shape, and atmospheric effects. The techniques you will learn in Frank’s workshop transcend the watercolor medium. A painter's painter, Frank Eber works in a direct, loose style influenced by the Old World masters. Typical in his art are color mixes and light that evoke nostalgia while remaining absolutely in the present. Frank's watercolor workshops reach beyond technique, encouraging individual expression and observing the elusive balance of forces that create beauty in painting. All levels are welcome but students should have an understanding of the watercolor medium and of simple one point perspective.
