Join Jessica Fields for a two day workshop focusing on color and composition through palette knife painting. You will learn how to make your own cold wax medium and how to apply it with a palette knife in two landscape paintings. Each painting will highlight the importance of color and composition within the work.
Jessica Fields was born in Lafayette, Louisiana and lived there for 8 whole days before becoming a Texan. She graduated from the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design because she wanted to see snow and then scurried back to Texas. Art school is amazing. That much snow is insane. She received her Masters in Art Education from the University of Houston and then taught Art and Art History for 6 years in West Houston. Now living in Greenville, South Carolina, Jessica paints landscapes that almost always have the exact shade of yellow that was in her mother’s house. Because home chases you.
CANCELLATION POLICY (NEW!)
If a month before the workshop we haven’t reached the minimum amount of students for the workshop to happen the workshop will be canceled and students will receive a full refund.
If you cancel less than 60 DAYS prior to the start of a workshop you will receive half of your registration fee, If you cancel less than 30 DAYS prior the start of the workshop you will not receive a refund. If you must cancel in this time frame we encourage you to find a replacement, and your replacement can reimburse you for your course fee. If you cancel before the 60-day limit you will receive a full refund minus 3% processing fee. Unfortunately, students who start a multiple-day class and are unable to attend any portion will not receive a refund.
INCLEMENT WEATHER AND GLOBAL HEALTH POLICY (NEW!)
Workshops or classes will be canceled or rescheduled if inclement weather (hurricanes, snow storm, tropical storm, black ice, flooding, etc.) is on the forecast, or if a global health issue (pandemic) prevents groups from gathering. No one should take any unnecessary risks. If the workshop is canceled because of these out of our control circumstances, all registration money will be returned to the students minus 3% processing fee. The workshop will be rescheduled if possible for both parties.
A proof of full Covid vaccination will be required to register for any in person Painting Miles workshop or class.
If you have covid symptoms before coming to the workshop, please stay home and a positive covid test result will be required in order to receive a full refund (minus the 3% processing fee).
