John Salminen has been conducting workshops for many years, all around the country – from California to New York and from Rhode Island to Florida. He enjoys working with artists at all levels of experience and expertise. He currently offers two workshops one entitled “Abstraction Through Design” and the other “Realism Through Design”. His workshops include demonstrations, critiques and lots of individual help. Artists are encouraged to expand upon their current levels of understanding and become more comfortable applying the principles and elements of design to their work.
“As a participant in John Salminen’s workshop, I will probably never approach my subject matter in the same way again. I believe my appreciation of John’s teaching was shared by everyone who was able to attend. I know that if I ever have the opportunity, I would sacrifice much to attend another John Salminen workshop.”
-participant in the Northern Plains Watercolor Society Workshop
“Thank you for a most incredible week of growing pains. I feel that your teaching pulled and pushed my creativity, molded and shaped my painting techniques, cracked open and helped to free a confidence in my painting that I didn’t have before.”
