Dan LaVigne

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.

* In addition to classroom sessions, Dan offers one plein air class per year,  meeting at locations that include Ventura County's most beautiful canyons and beaches.

​​Cheryl Goss-
“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.”

Diane Landau-
“Dan opened my eyes to a new way of seeing and experiencing art. His use of light is amazing, more striking than any painter I’ve seen. He helped me incorporate his teachings into my own art, and I am better for that guidance.”

Carrie Stanton-
“Dan taught me techniques that really opened my mind and allowed me to reach for the next level.”
