Ann Breckon
Workshops & Demonstrations  2017

Workshops allow more time for fully-developed paintings and in-depth learning.
Students of all levels are welcome in the workshops. 
Reference photos and outline sketches are provided, or you may bring your own.

 PAINTING AROUND THE COLOR WHEEL


    
For 2017 Ann's classes will be all about the colors of the color wheel.  The subject matter
     will include a wide variety: floral, landscape, techniques, portraits and miniatures.

     There are carefully chosen and exciting topics for each workshop, selected to keep you    
     interested and learning new things. Students may duplicate the demonstration painting,
     change it somewhat to make it their own, or bring in their own topic-related reference
     material and work at their own pace.  Composition, color-mixing and more are discussed
     with every lesson. 

     Workshops this year are offered at the two Daniel Smith stores in the Seattle area and
     at ArtsAlive! in Enumclaw:
