Art Education

A trained teacher with an extensive background in art education, Ross capably imparts his knowledge in a methodical, yet concise and positive manner, for all levels of development within the context of each workshop theme.  His workshop demonstrations are approached in logical steps and cover all aspects of necessary awareness when painting “en Plein air” or studio. Thoroughly explained elements, such as design, drawing, tone , colour possibilities,  technique and mood are all explored, along with the various subtleties and characteristics associated with a specific area or subject.  When on location, he will teach analytical awareness- pointing out unifying shapes and  relationships that will enable a painting to work as a design!

Ross usually supports his well constructed teaching with a set of relevant and valued teaching notes, to reinforce an informative and enjoyable week.
