2017 Workshops

Philip knows the coast of Maine intimately and prepares for his workshops with great pleasure. Living in Maine year-round provides him time to discover inspiring vantage points from which to teach. With a devoted following of talented students, Philip is celebrated for his engaging, illuminating and positive teaching style. He is skilled at assessing his student’s abilities and building confidence to help move them to the next level.

“I have taken several of your workshops and initially thought that they would be redundant but I was wrong. Your different approaches to plein air, figure drawing and still life kept each fresh and challenging. I enjoyed each one and learned new concepts as well as reviewing old ones.” - M. Beaulieu of Bernard, Maine

“Philip provides classical fundamentals, instruction in how to see and understand the composition, and guides the challenge of putting the lessons into practice.” - V. Crofoot of St. Petersburg, Florida

"Philip is a delight to work with, giving freedom yet challenges to students of all levels, based in a deep knowledge of expressionistic landscape painting," artist and student, Vcevy Strekalovsky of Hingham, MA.

The Mindful Brush: Slowing Down for Artists

A delightful introduction to mindfulness through painting and paying attention to our senses. We all have the tools to be present and clear, yet we are habituated toward distraction. Artists being keenly aware their senses, can learn to access simple, practical tools to help them develop mindfulness, slowing down and being present in the studio and in daily lives. Program dates TBA.
