Back from the Pacific Northwest

I just had a fantastic experience teaching Abstract Painting at the Pacific Northwest Art School on Whidbey Island in Washington. Here are a few video clips of the event:

And a few pictures:

The workshop in Progress

Watching a Demo

We will be doing some of the same activities in Expressive Collage at Omega in September.  I will also be returning to Pacific Northwest Art School in May (4 - 10), teaching Abstract Painting (a different version), as well as a two-day workshop on Monoprint Collage using the gel plate.

Music in the video is by Podington Bear (I think I misspelled it in the credit - sorry, Podington with one d).


  1. Looks absolutely idyllic! What a fabulous setting!

  2. Jane - what a pleasure to experience your teaching in person. I look forward to being with you next year at the Pacific NW Art School and perhaps sooner.

    p.s. I've been painting non-stop since I got home!

  3. Looks like everyone really performed under your guidance. Great group, great work.

  4. Hi Jane, just stopping by to say how delightful your blog is. Thanks so much for sharing. I have recently found your blog and am now following you, and will visit often. Please stop by my blog and perhaps you would like to follow me also. Have a wonderful day. Hugs, Chris

  5. Your students all did such lovely work. Thanks for sharing the video on your blog.

  6. Hi, Jane. What an exciting workshop--the participants seem to liberated. And what a beautiful place to hold it.
    best from Tunisia,

  7. Looks like you had a fabulous workshop and a fun time had by all (I have heard such positive feedback!!). And what a beautiful setting. I am so sorry I had to miss both your class and the opportunity to meet some of the online friends I had made in your classes ... maybe next time. In the meantime I am (still!) loving your DVD and will perhaps 'see' you again in one of your online classes.

  8. Thanks so much for posting this Jane. I loved watching the artists at work and enjoyed the comments and their finished pieces. Oh to take one of your classes -- someday, one day......
