Notan: The Art of Simplicity

  • Warehouse 521 521 Heather Place Nashville, Tennessee 37204 (map)


This workshop is designed to help you loosen up and simplify, simplify, simplify! Anne will teach you to set up better compositions through the study of Notan (balance of dark and light). She will show you how to see values and shapes clearly to get to the essence of your design in its simplest form. Various exercises will help you to paint with freedom and confidence, opening you up to a more expressive style of painting. 

Topics also covered in depth will be creating perfect color harmony, techniques for painterly brushwork, and balancing life study with photographic reference.

Class size limited. Each individual will receive focused attention and will come away with a plan for bringing their paintings to a higher level.


For full classes, join the waitlist. If a spot opens up, you will be contacted.
