Composing the Landscape Class

I will be conducting a 6-week course that focuses on understanding and painting the principles of the landscape. Each week a different aspect will be covered, from creating a center of focus, to massing and value patterning, to understanding how color effects the composition. Examples from master artists (living and dead) will be used to help the student further understand the principles, as well as demonstrations given. Mostly, though, I believe we learn from doing, so hands-on in-class assignments and individual attention to the students will be stressed. To sign up, or for more information, contact me at 219-241-1392 or by email at
