I will be teaching my annual workshops on Catalina Island, CA & Fishers Island, NY again this summer. Please sign up early as space is limited. This year we will be studying feathers and birds--Inspired by the ethereal and delicate nature of feathers, this class aims to be a calm meditation exploring their form and function. Our exploration will range from up close observation of feathers’ fascinating features under the microscope to discussion about the purpose of their shape and placement for birds’ optimal performance. We will study birds themselves as well. Once we have mastered painting the feathers we will paint the whole bird.
