The Niagara Falls area is a beautiful area for painting and family fun both on the US and Canadian side. This is the only workshop offered in Niagara Falls, USA. Each day starts with a morning demonstration and lecture. The demo will focus on bold composition with under painting. You will learn how to make quick decisions and simplify for the most impact. We will discuss color relationships, detail, form and edges. Put the brakes on and learn to 'bake the cake' before you apply the frosting (accents). Participants will then paint until we break for lunch.

Lunch is on your own (you are encouraged to brown bag your lunch on location). During lunch, we will critique works in progress. Participants are asked to start a second painting for the afternoon session so it is suggested to work no larger than 12x12. Supervised painting until 4 p.m. each day. This workshop is focused on making you a faster and better painter, capturing the essence of the landscape. Sessions are 9-4p.m. The workshops offer focus on working in acrylic/oils or watercolor but, you may work in medium of your choice. One of the most beautiful painting locations in North America!

Hello Jacqueline
Thank you for the kind words. I had an amazing 2 days. I've learned more from you than all my other workshop instructors together. You had a number a tips or comments that have stuck in my mind all week. If the rain holds off I plan to do a painting tomorrow...just in the backyard.
Best wishes always
I'll watch for future workshops on you website. Laurie

Hi Jacqueline,Just back from my recent trip to Buffalo. I have to tell you the the highlight of the trip was painting with you at the workshop.

The location was unbelievable, awe-inspiring and indescribable. I'm trying to master phtalo but it really wants to master me.

I liked learning your grisalle method of doing a value study. It's a neat technique to add to my arsenal.
Most of all, I enjoyed meeting you and will think of you as one of my very talented artist friends. If I can help you advertise your Myrtle Beach workshop, I'd be happy to pass the information onto my plein air group of 60 plus artists.

Just touched up my paintings from Niagara Falls and will have them on my site soon. Again, thanks for a memorable workshop.
It was fabulous! Ann Hair, NC

I just wanted to thank you again for not canceling the workshop. To be able to work with you for two days with your undivided attention was truly a valuable experience for me.
Not only did I get information regarding materials, location, set-up, and approach to plein air painting, I received something I wasn't planning on - a direction in my painting! The workshop was worth many times the price of admission!
Many more thanks and continued success in your workshops and painting! Sincerely, Bill D

Dear Jackie:
I had such a wonderful time painting last weekend. I learned so much. You are a patient and giving teacher. Comparing Saturday to Sunday's paintings was a revelation. I look at everything in terms of cast shadows. I also can't wait to send for the Graham paints and try them at home.
I hope I can sign up for other classes in the future. Linda K, NJ

Thank you so much for the photo of Jeanne and me. We both enjoyed the workshop so much. As my first experience with plein aire painting, I really appreciated the opportunity to watch as you demonstrated establishing a value study and building up the painting with application of color from dark to light. I loved "in the moment" quality of painting outdoors, even when the wind was blowing my easel over! Your input was always helpful and so encouraging.
I plan to continue my efforts at painting outdoors and you can count on me being at one of your future workshops.
Thanks again. Karen K

Dear Jacqui,
Thank you for an excellent weekend of art instruction. The techniques you taught were great. The entire workshop was very enlightening for me. The methods you taught will bring me to a new level as a painter. I came to the workshop knowing very little about plein air painting, but left feeling inspired to continue with plein air painting.

I am also hoping to contact local plein air painters and try to start perhaps a plein air society in our area.

Again, thanks for everything...including the trip at the Falls, the Canadian fries and those excellent Maple Leaf cookies.

Wishing you many successes ! Kelly S, PA.


I just wanted to drop you a note and let you know what an impact you made on my life.

I only took one workshop with you but it certainly was inspiring and educational.

I have been able to rededicate myself to painting (even though I still have trouble making time to paint as much as I would like).

Not only has my life improved artistically, but also personally. I have met a wonderful man that I plan on marrying soon.
I also wanted to let you know I want to do another workshop with you in the future. Don't know when for sure yet, one thing at a time:)

Thank you so much, Kelly S.

Hi Jacq: Just a quick note to say how much I enjoyed the workshop.

Thanks so much for making this a valuable and fun experience. I have continued to edit some paintings done there including the birthday gift for my wife (who loved her gift). I also am processing the lessons conveyed and hope that the changes will continue to occur as they sink in.,
