Online Creativity Workshop with Erin Lee Gafill
November 11 – January 6
$150 – registration fee

Through the exploration of Color, you’ll master techniques that will bring life and vibrancy to your painting. You’ll discover ways to use color — hue, chroma, tint and tone — that will bring excitment and harmony to your painting practice. Use complements and contrasts, experiment with intensity as well as the pleasure of the neutral palette, and find out how color can bring emotion to your painting and a sense of play to your practice.

Workshop includes video demonstrations, written instruction, weekly exercises, personal feedback and support, and an exceptionally supportive learning community.

  1. Hi Erin,
    I didn’t know you had online workshops, how cool…I am thinking about taking the color workshop…is Jan 6 the last day it is accessible? Just curious, because I didn’t know how many lessons were covered. Thanks.

    Linda

    1. Linda – we got a late start on the Color! Beyond Theory workshop. We’ve only sent out the first lesson, and the five other exercises will continue through mid-January. All the workshop information is available online to registered participants for one year from the starting date. Feel free to join in now.

      If you have any questions, just drop us a note.

      Thanks, Tom

  2. Erin, I was wondering if you will be having another on line workshop after the nov-jan one is completed? I had wanted to take this course but somehow missed the start date. My thanks.

    Sarah

    1. Hi Sarah –

      It is not too late to sign up for the Color! Beyond Theory workshop, as we got a bit of a late start, and the course will run through mid January. Only the first exercise has gone out so far, and we’ll be posting the second at the end of this week.

      Otherwise, we will be presenting Erin’s online workshops in the future, and if you are on Erin’s mailing list, you’ll get announcements when they come up.

      Thanks for the inquiry, Tom

  3. Still Life Workshop includes all materials??? And…. Louisiana was a 2day/$250 workshop. Can folks opt for two days of this?

    1. Paula –

      Feel free to come to day 2 & 3 of Erin’s still life workshop tomorrow and Sunday. Participants are bringing materials, I will have Erin send you the materials list…if you decide to come by, and don’t have everything, don’t worry, we’ll help fill in.

      Thanks for your interest.

      Tom (Erin’s Husband)

    1. Jane – Feel free to give us a call – 831-646-9000 – or send an email – erinleegafill@yahoo.com for queries about any of Erin’s work. Erin and I will be happy to answer any of your questions. BTW – we’ll be at the opening at Ventana for Carolyn Kleefeld this evening, if you’re in the neighborhood.

      Best – Tom (Erin’s Husband)
