I will be teaching my annual workshops on Catalina Island, CA & Fishers Island, NY again this summer. Â Please sign up early as space is limited. Â This year we will be studying feathers and birds–Inspired by the ethereal and delicate nature of feathers, this class aims to be a calm meditation exploring their form and function. Â Our exploration will range from up close observation of feathersâ€™ fascinating features under the microscope to discussion about the purpose of their shape and placement for birdsâ€™ optimal performance. Â We will study birds themselves as well. Â Once we have mastered painting the feathers we will paint the whole bird.
