Join Featured famil-E Artist Joshua Elias for a workshop designed to inspire the artist to be exceptional, fueling them with the fundamentals to make a good painting great!

Students can expect to be actively painting throughout the workshop, while Joshua covers the principles of composition, line, color, subject, objective, scale, tone, and vibration. There will be additional discussion of oil versus acrylic as a medium, shapes in the physical universe, and color mixing.

Joshua will also share his thoughts on foundation as the spark for content for resonance, pictorial tension, drama and harmony, earth, ground, and sky as clarified by Da Vinci, and understanding the painting as object.

Depth in painting comes with a lightness and a sense of play and humor!
