Come join Jen and Yvette Lyons for a colorful, action-packed 3-day painting extravaganza at Yvette's Live Your Art studio in Carlsbad, CA.  We'll deepen our understanding of color and values, we'll experiment with a variety of mark making and texture through finger-painting and we'll practice letting go and spontaneous response painting through collaborative work.  Here’s an overview of the workshop...

  • We'll chat about values and explore tools & tricks that help us identify the values in our work more easily to achieve better results in our work figure and portrait work

  • We will explore a variety of color palettes and talk about color as it relates your work and as it translates to values 

  • We'll practice spontaneous response painting to poetry and music in order to help us discover our own personal style of using color and marks to express ourselves.

  • For those willing participants we'll finger-paint an entire piece from start to's exhilarating and rewarding to be in such close contact with your work from beginning to end!  

  • Collaboration time :)

Due to the limited size of the workshop there will be lots of time for individual assistance and feedback :)
