Explore ways to develop your own personal paint style with master of creativity and expression, Judi Betts. Some of the essentials covered in class include variation and simplification in design, influence of color, and the use of abstract images. You will learn to see and understand Judi’s concept of “magical shapes,” as well as discover new ways to see and capture mood and emotion. The workshop’s focus is to assist each artist in creating their own expressive paintings.

It is recommended that students bring many reference photographs to work from; participants are also encouraged to bring a few finished paintings or sketchbooks for professional review with Judi. Daily challenges will be given and personalized to each student’s level of experience – something exciting to look forward to!

With over 100 awards to her credit, Judi is a painter who also teaches workshops. Her paintings are known for their luminosity, humor, and sparkle. Judi’s classes are spirited, upbeat, fun, and constructive. The lectures and demos are designed to encourage, expand, and explore.
