I'm so proud to teach my first (of many, I hope) workshop at the Scottsdale Artists' School in Scottsdale, Arizona. I hope you'll join me! Contact the school to reserve your spot, space is limited. 

Scottsdale Artists’ School
3720 North Marshall Way

Discover the starting method that will take your work to new heights! From both life and photos, Tina will demonstrate three oil painting starting methods including open grisaille, accurate color block-in and Tina’s favorite, selective start. Each morning Tina will demonstrate and lecture. Each afternoon, Tina will work one-on-one with every artist as they paint from the live model on days one and two, and from photos on the third day. 
Learn to see and simplify values, create form, and understand edges and chroma to control your composition and create dramatic portraiture.
Tina will teach you how to organize your palette to mix realistic colors, values, and temperatures for different skin types.
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 painting to new heights. All levels welcome!

Workshop fee is $350.00 plus model fee. Contact the Scottsdale Artists' School to reserve your spot. Space is limited.

"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. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!" Dean Larsen — UT
