Thanks for stopping by my gallery and viewing my art.
Watch here for new outdoor classes coming this spring and summer.
This in person class is being held at the Credo Christian High School 21846 52 Ave, Langley . About this time of the year we are wishing we were in Hawaii. Well if we cannot be in the aloha state, at least we can paint these beautiful fragrant flowers from the islands. As you paint you will learn how to leave the white of your paper showing through to create nice, crisp pedals and how to paint the negative shapes of your painting effectively.
This in person class is being held at the Credo Christian High School 21846 52 Ave, Langley . If you have ever wanted to a add a little bit of life into your paintings this would be a good class to attend. In this class I will show you how to create simple figures with just a few brush strokes or how to draw out a figure with a little more detail. We will also be working on how to animate our figures to make them look less stiff.
This in person class is being held at the Credo Christian High School 21846 52 Ave, Langley . We live in one of the most beautiful parts of the world and it offers up so many incredible vistas to paint. In this class you will learn how to create a landscape using the French Wash technique. As you paint you will also learn how to create effective reflections in water and how to create rich, soft skies.

Join me for a weekend filled with plein air painting. During this workshop I will help you gear up for plein air painting, choosing your location and subject matter, creating a quick value sketch and then a line drawing to paint from, blocking in, adjusting, and putting in the final touches to your painting. 2 separate locations. Bring your own lunch. Jess will work in watecolour and acrylic. Rain or shine.
This class will be held in our backyard under tents in White Rock, BC. In this 4-day intensive watercolour workshop you will maximize your watercolor skills through choosing interesting subject matter, prioritizing objects, blocking in your painting, brush techniques and finalizing your painting. Demonstrations, individual attention, and critiques are part of every day that we will paint together.
I offer a couple of different classes for acrylics. The beginner class is for students who have not used acrylics before or need a refresher course. The intermediate class is for students who have had some painting experience and want to learn a few more techniques. These in person classes are being held at the Credo Christian High School 21846 52 Ave, Langley .
If you have completed the Beginner course or have been painting for a while and would like to expand your techniques to mixed media, this class will be an exciting experience. The course will focus on the many ways to add texture and interest to your acrylic paintings. The Instructor will introduce you to the products and applications that will open the door to the world of experimentation with acrylic gels, plasters, and other mixed media techniques.
Although this course will be taught using acrylics, many of the same principals can be applied to painting with oils should this be your choice of medium in the future. Whether you are a beginner or have a little previous experience, all you need is a curious mind and a willingness to branch out and experiment! We will start from the beginning, with a step by step process.
