This workshop is designed to help artists put more meaning and emotion into their paintings.  Jay will begin the first day with a 90 minute power point presentation showing how master artists put a great deal of thought and sketching into the concept of their paintings before putting down the first stroke.


Jay will have the students go out in the field with their sketchbooks and experiment with a variety of compositions that best show their concept. The morning of day two will be a demo with Jay sketching/painting outside on location, and students will paint in the afternoon. Day three and four will be plein air painting and the last afternoon will be back in the studio to show student work with a final critique and discussion.


Portable easel and transportation required.
