He comes from a background of working in the art gallery and ancillary art businesses for over 40 years. As an artist for 25 of those years, he can speak to the business and creative aspects of being a professional artist.

Ken studied with Wolf Kahn for a month at the Santa Fe Art Institute Master Class program. He came away with enough information for a lifetime. For decades he has been associated with a number of wonderful and successful artists. As a former gallery dealer, he has a great deal of experience and knowledge about past and present artists and their reasons for success. Having grown up in the arts with framing, gallery management and as an artist, he has much to offer to the hobbyist and professional artist.

Two-day workshop: $225. per person

In his workshop:
Ken will discuss strategies for creating better artworks with a variety of common and creative tools. The workshop will focus the strategies for making better paintings, going to new places in your work and how to make fine art. Much attention will be given to improving your own artworks and career.

Ken will demonstrate painting using oil and pastel. He will discuss the idea of making strong starts and keeping the way open for more interesting and dramatic finishes.

In addition to making art works, Ken will talk about business and promotion, which are necessary to be a successful artist in the marketplace.

There will be serious discussions, laughs, and your questions.   We will all come away with new tools to take your art to the next level.

Attendees are invited to bring whatever they wish to paint with and work on.  Bring works to start, works in progress, and finished works to evaluate.  There will be a lot of conversation about the mental aspects of making good art by design and experiment.  The mental aspect is the quickest way to get the breakthroughs to the next big success in your art.

 Ken will bring some finished works to share with the group.
