“The workshop lasted three days and let me tell you it was entirely worth it. It was jam-packed with information, techniques and best practices for both making art and making it as an artist. If you are looking to take your work to the next level and learn from a contemporary master I highly recommend it.”

“Taking part in the J Louis workshop was not only educational but very inspiring. I can’t say enough good things about J Louis as an artist and also as a person. He went above and beyond a typical workshop and was a true teacher at heart. He shares his gift and knowledge in such a genuine and generous way. I would highly recommend this workshop to widen understanding of painting and textiles as well as inspiration that comes from thinking outside the box.”

“I would say the overall experience was great. I felt overwhelmed with your use of technology, but you are patient and willing to teach those with tech-phobias. one thing I learned from you was how to truly capture the image. I love your use of color and application. Much lighter than I was accustomed...”
