What They’re Saying!

I felt that after you got to know our individual abilities, you really fine-tuned your comments for each of us. I also appreciated how open you were in answering questions…and your humor. Your workshop left me feeling prepared, motivated and inspired to continue my own practice. Thanks, again, for being so generous with your talent and knowledge.”

Jenny W, Arkansas

(Joint workshop with Jason Sacran) I want to give you a “rave” review for a wonderful workshop. I highly recommend that everyone take your workshop and to experience the generosity, kindness, friendship, fun and talent you both possess. You two represent the best of the best in the painting world!

Andrea K, Georgia

The demo was visual learning at its best…breaking down the subject into abstract shapes for strong paintings.

Charli S, Missouri

John explained and demonstrated how to see a subject, organize its basic shapes into a pleasing composition, and translate it into an attractive painting.  He clarified and simplified these concepts in ways that finally made sense to me after many years of studying art, and he helped each of us apply what we learned in our own style.  It was not only beneficial, but fun!

Betsy S, Missouri

John Lasater’s class provided me with the instruction I needed to improve as an artist.  His teaching demonstrations gave insights into how to improve composition, technique and color harmony.   Students were given the opportunity to practice the skills he taught while he continually monitored and guided us through the painting process.  It was a great learning experience.
