This Demo is included in Lori's Workshop AVAILABLE HERE

Lori Putnam’s paintings are a personal and genuine response to a scene, and she encourages her students to learn to do the same. Putnam believes that each artist sees differently and leaves his or her own, distinctive mark. Yet letting go of formulas and finding the confidence to express ourselves honestly seems difficult, sometimes even fearful. Students will leave this workshop excited; ready to experiment more on their own; and, above all, pointed toward meaningful, personal, artistic growth.

Putnam’s approachable, giving nature, energetic demonstrations, and hands-on teaching style have made her one of the most sought-after instructors of our time. Her workshops fill rapidly, and are increasingly difficult to find.

Workshop includes lectures and demonstrations, individual painting time, personalized instruction, and group critiques to promote your progress. AVAILABLE HERE

Art Instructor Bio - Lori Putnam

Lori Putnam’s artistic development truly began following an intensive, 8-month period of self-study in Italy in 2008. The artist’s rapid growth and style continued to evolve for the next several years, due largely to the influence and encouragement from artist friends Quang Ho and Scott Christensen. In 2014, five of the nation’s top magazines took notice, and spotlighted her work and successful career. Now considered one of the nation’s most prominent and sought-after Modern Impressionists, Putnam’s paintings border on abstraction, and are recognized for their energetic brushwork, masterful use of color, and intelligent design.

She paints landscapes and still life, as well as the figure and portraits. When asked about subject matter, Putnam states, “It is much less about the actual subject itself, and more about color harmonies, rhythms, patterns, and shapes.” While she may use photographs as reference material, she prefers working from life, and travels extensively painting sketches to use for larger paintings at her studio in Charlotte Tennessee.


The Friday Night Demo Series showcases professional artists and helps you learn by watching them create. With a question and answer session after each demo, it's a fantastic way to gain new insights into how artists work. Whether you paint or not, wine with cheese and art are the perfect way to enjoy a Friday evening.
