Whether you are a beginner taking your first painting class or a seasoned professional Shasha's courses will take your painting to the next level.

What to expect

All workshops include instruction on the primary aspects of painting: composition, color mixing, values, materials, drawing and working with galleries. Students are free to be as laid back or as intense as they wish. Mark is prepared for either.

The objective is to get outside as soon as possible so the personal instruction can start. The morning begins with some important pointers and a demonstration followed by a day of painting. Later, willing artists may participate in a critique where finer points are discussed.
