Intensive Studies Seminar is a program unlike any other you have ever attended. Our returning students
tell us it gets better and better each year!
The program is updated each year so that returning students can get the
out of the workshop, year after year.
The planning of our seminar is a group effort by the five of us. Each
of us brings a
slightly different approach to painting and teaching, but our basic teaching
are the same: to help each participant find and develop his own personally
way to paint.
Our program is unique.
We designed this seminar for developing painters
who are ready to move
beyond the typical watermedia workshop approach that emphasizes techniques
and a narrow choice of concepts. We’re different.
We don’t emphasize technique (although we’ll offer help if
you need it), and we
don’t expect you to be a master of the medium. If you have a few
years of painting
experience, that’s enough. We do emphasize concept —what you’re
going to do
with your technique to express your ideas, interests, and feelings.
We’ll offer you (in our studio instruction, personal critiques,
and slide presentations)
a variety of approaches to choose from and will suggest numerous ways
employ color, design, and space to make a more effective and creative
As we rotate from group to group, we’ll offer individual instruction,
and written comments (that you can refer to over the course of the seminar).
In short, this seminar is about the way you paint (or want to paint) and
the way we paint. And none of us believes there is a hierachy in painting,
non-objective painting is superior to more realistic styles (or the reverse).
We’ll help you make the choices that will be the most satisfying
The title Intensive Studies Seminar may sound
a little daunting, and the painters
who attend do work hard. But the feeling in the studio is one of excitement
enthusiasm; the participants are supportive and non-competive. It’s
opportunity to learn and grow as an artist.
We hope you will join us.

"The ISS gave me concentrated and uninterrupted time and guidance
to explore ideas and
concepts that had eluded me before. The balance of work and seminar discussion
provided all of us with a chance to consider new approaches.
I worked hard, laughed a lot, and met some wonderful artists I still stay
in contact with. Plus, I left the ISS a better painter and artist, and
years later I continue to explore ideas I took home with me. Can't
wait to return."
