Although I have decided to take a brake this year from my regular teaching schedule I have received many requests that I teach workshops and have decided to do advanced workshops in my studio .The time I have taken has give me space to explore my own work and focus on personal projects. In this time I have learned a lot about where I've been and where I'm going, about my own work flow, and about what really keeps me going creatively.
These workshops will be advanced level and I will be pushing you to do more and try more. As you know my work has been changing drastically over the last couple years. I am still using my same ideas and techniques. I want to teach you how to use my techniques in your own style and help you find your own voice in your work. These workshops will be the only ones I am scheduling this year, so that I may continue to have space for personal growth. I am curating these classes with students who I have personally seen push their work and creativity forward during and after class. This will create a group dynamic allowing the group to really push themselves and each other.
I am offering two workshops at this time, 8 students each, 5days, $900.

These classes will have more structure. Each day will have planned lessons each focused on an aspect of process and idea. We will begin each day with a lecture demo focused on a particular process. You will then work on individual lessons for the entire day. I will be critiquing and guiding students through out the day but remaining focused on one core idea per day. The remaining time will be left for individual work and experimentation between the previous days lessons. There will be question and answer sessions as well as critiques throughout the days.
The two workshops will be held at my studio in Portland at 3022 E Burnside st, Portland, OR 97214. There will be 8 students per class. COST $900 5 days of full instruction from 11am - 6pm. Thursday - Monday
