LaVigne currently teaches painting at Studio Channel Islands Art Center in Camarillo. His classes focus on the discipline of Still life in oils, but are also open to those who prefer working from photo resources or landscape studies. Students will be instructed in the use of composition, design, brush handling, and a temperature-based pallette. Along the way, Dan shares his experiences as a commercial Illustrator and fine artist over a career spanning three decades. Classes run ten, 3-hour meetings and are focused on giving students the kind of individual attention that gets results.
When: 10:00 to 1:00 Wednesdays
Where: Studio Channel Islands Art Center, 2222 Ventura Blvd. Old Town Camarillo, Room A - 4.
Price: $45. per session or $450. for all ten.

“I hadn’t focused on having a plan. Dan taught me to start big, keep it simple, then move toward detail. His workshop provided me with the basic tools that will help me grow.”
“My take-aways were understanding values of light and shadow and having a plan before you start. All in all a great experience.”
“Dan taught me techniques that really opened my mind and allowed me to reach for the next level.”
