A Finishing School for Paintings


Susan Tregay Studio
57 Skyline Ext
Hendersonville 28791

June 15 - 18





Susan Webb Tregay’s course simplifies the elements and principles of design into manageable and very successful color and design strategies that apply to all artistic media. Based on studies of famous paintings, these strategies guarantee exceptional paintings and photographs. 


Artists will learn to adjust their paintings, aligning them with both a color and a design strategy as the piece develops. Tregay teaches a technique she developed that creates clean, sharp-edged paint removal in watercolor, while acrylics are naturally very flexible.


Artists are asked to bring their favorite media and photos to work with. Flowers and trees(!) will also be supplied for inspiration. Those wishing to learn more about watercolor will be sent a supply list. A limited supply of watercolors will be available.


Learn why some of your paintings are ho-hum while others are exceptional. Make every future painting a winner.
