Join us at Gallery222 for a fabulous workshop with Jan Wier. Jan will begin the session with a demo. She will demonstrate how to build paintings with luminous color starting with transparent colors, and building towards opaques.  Students will then be working from still life set ups arranged through out Gallery222 . You will be working in oils, alla prima style; wet on wet to create your own paintings..
