You’ll work hard, but the atmosphere will be casual and a lot of fun! John provides painting subjects and does at least two demonstration paintings each day, then assists individual students with their work. He will explain all the essential materials and will discuss techniques and approaches to get maximum impact from a simple collection of tools and equipment.

Lovett 3John comes to ArtCenter Manatee all the way from Australia! He has been painting professionally for over 40 years. His work possesses an emotive power and vitality that is enhanced by his use of light, color and a strong sense of design. John’s passion for his work and his open, very informative approach to teaching make him a much sought after instructor. John’s knowledge and enthusiasm will inspire you to produce better paintings in a relaxed and supportive atmosphere.
