Gain a sense of mastery and confidence in this online weekly critique session with Dianna Shyne. Being part of a critique group is one of the best tools an artist can have to help understand his or her own work and develop critical analytical skills
In a friendly group setting, Dianna will review your paintings, give thoughtful and thorough critiques and show how making little corrections can help create better paintings. Students will find it enormously helpful to witness first-hand the small changes that lead to huge improvements. Critiques will be interspersed with short slide show/demos to help illustrate the point she is making. You will be amazed at how close you are to a more successful.
Whatever your painting level, jump right in at any stage in a group of like-minded and supportive artists. Participants are welcome to just watch and listen or be an active participant.
Dianna Shyne has painted for over 40 years in watercolor, oils and acrylics. Twenty years ago she settled on acrylic paint as her medium of choice for its speed, resiliency, flexibility, drying time on location and overall results. She has spent years working on ways to resolve the apparent weakness of the medium and turn them into strengths. Multiple award-winning artist Dianna Shyne infuses her paintings and workshops with a sense of vitality and life-affirming joy Whether teaching in areas as historically rich as Xian China, as remote as Nunavut Territories, or in her native Pacific Northwest, Dianna is dedicated to the artistic development of her students. To Dianna, teaching is a joy as well as an art . Her classes are both informative and inspirational, conveying not only theoretical art concepts but also delving into the deeper issues of creativity and the ongoing artistic journey.
