Qiang Huang Workshop in Cary NC

Just finished a wonderful painting workshop with Qiang Huang at the Waverly Artists Gallery in Cary. What a privilege to be taught by this very accomplished artist right here in the Triangle. I didn't have to travel to Austin TX where he lives.
Qiang is a very fine artist and also a superior and giving teacher. He had the best set up for viewing his demonstrations that I have ever seen!
His teaching of the basic principles of painting, composition, value, color, brushwork, and edges, are applicable to all media. Qiang went around to each student several times a day and gave instructions according to the students level. He is planning a painting workshop trip to his native China for this fall. Check out his blog to see his beautiful work and also for future updates about the China workshop

Today I am excited to announce that I have started teaching an oil painting class here in Durham NC. Class is Wednesday afternoon, 1:30 to 4:30. We talk, have a lesson and then paint with supervision in my glass walled living room.
