There’s an adage in painting: “Value does all the work and color gets all the glory.” Without a strong foundation, and understanding of values, your paintings can appear flat, albeit colorful. Tonal values add volume, dimension, and depth to our artwork. In this workshop, we will focus on how to identify values, tones, and shades in our paintings. Takeyce Walter will provide demonstrations, critiques, exercises, and assignments to help you grow your skills. We will work from life and/or reference images, and you will be guided with one-on-one instruction.

Here’s what my students are saying about my workshops:

We had such a good time yesterday. I am still thinking and engaged with “pastels” this morning. Just saying the workshop has wonderful “spillover” effects. You’re a fine teacher, and I appreciate so much your preparations, demonstrations and instruction. All are gentle and open. You create an ideal environment for creative expression.

– Dawn, Artist

Takeyce was delightful…….organized, informative, two demos given , a wonderful teacher and we all went home with two completed paintings each. So glad I am signed up for her two upcoming classes…….please keep her coming back!!
– Sally Higgins, Artist

“I just wanted to say how very much I enjoyed the workshop Takeyce gave on color theory last weekend. She is a very generous teacher, sharing skills and techniques so articulately. I love her. We had a good group of artists of different levels. The space was pleasant and the time sped by. I got a lot out of this class, but more importantly, I feel inspired to do more art myself. So glad I signed up!”

— Susan Weber

Please check back often, as new classes are added frequently. As always, you can contact me at any time with questions or comments.
