Supply List

Workshop Description:

By taking this workshop, you will learn how to evaluate and critique your artwork to make it successful and intentional. It is not a follow-along but for artists who want to make successful decisions and get better results on future paintings. You may start a new image, but bring existing artwork you want to improve; I will show you how to make dramatic changes to your pictures by taking a few minutes and demonstrating with and on your canvas while everyone watches. You will have time to work on the techniques and information we review on your artwork.

Learn how to apply principles and design elements to every painting you do. I will demonstrate mixing colors, harmonizing color palettes, brushwork, and edges, while using values, shapes, and colors effectively. You will learn how to make your art more attractive, whether impressionistic, abstract, or realistic, develop your style, discover your strengths, and target your weaknesses.

A minimum of 6 students and a maximum of 8 students will be accepted; however, additional students may audit the class on a per-day basis of $100. Audit students will not bring paints or receive personal instruction. This class might be videoed for future instructional purposes.

About the Instructor:

Artist Laurie Snow Hein is a rare Florida treasure. As a native Floridian she grew up on south Florida’s most beautiful beaches and it is those memories that still inspire her work today. She depicts our beaches not only as they are, but also as they existed in her idyllic childhood.

Recognized nationally for her coastal originals and prints, Snow-Hein has achieved something most artists only dream about, but never achieve. She has been able to raise her six children on the income doing what she loves . . . creating and successfully selling her paintings. 

While most of us hated the isolation of the pandemic, Snow-Hein found inspiration and more time to paint, to paint much larger more detailed images of her favorite coastal views from Crystal River and Boynton Beach to the Florida Keys.

Laurie started teaching at age 21 and has been teaching at the Everglades Club in Palm Beach and Lost Tree Village in PBG for over 30 years.
