All levels welcome! Tina takes an assessment of the students in attendance and customizes the demonstrations and lectures to the overall needs of the group. Each morning Tina will demonstrate and lecture. Each afternoon, Tina works one on one with every artist as they paint from the live model. Tina's goal is to be as generous with her knowledge as possible, walking each student through the concepts, so when artists leave her workshops they are able to take their own work to new heights.

"Tina, I cannot thank you enough for allowing me to attend your amazing workshop. Your warm, cheerful demeanor and refreshingly genuine personality made these past three days an absolute pleasure. The techniques and tricks, on how to handle oil paint , as well as how to achieve beautiful, rich skin tones will forever be implemented into my process. I very much appreciated the insights and wisdom on the difference between P.R. and marketing, on getting our artwork out there for potential collectors and clients.

"Of all the workshops I have attended, I feel that this one made the largest and quickest influence in my work. At the end of day two, I felt that the small 4 inch section of a face I had done was the best work I've ever done! Thank you Tina, for your expertise, your generosity in sharing that with us and for your amazing heart"  — D.H., Texas

"Tina gave us valuable information, she made me feel like it was okay to not make a masterpiece during the workshop. I didn't even want to go to the restroom because I didn't want to miss anything!" — E.G., Missouri
