Special Techniques
Video

Step by Step in-depth Instruction

SPECIAL TECHNIQUES/GENERAL INFORMATION VIDEO

In addition to the 8 individual painting videos, we have added a special feature for you that will be a Technique/General Information video. These videos will talk about supplies needed for the course, what brands we recommend, setting up your painting space, care and cleaning of your brushes, mediums and their uses, varnishing your paintings, why do you need to varnish, what we use and how to apply it, what is graphite paper? and how to use it to transfer the patterns onto the canvas.

We will also show you how to apply some decorative borders to your paintings. Simple accent borders using Gold Leaf, Embossed Gold Leaf and the use of Stencils.

On the Technique videos, Kathwren will demonstrate many of the elements that are in each of the individual painting videos. 
For example, Kathwren will demonstrate in very slow detail how to paint several of the flowers and foliage that are in each painting, directional brush stroke lines, the push down-lift up and sweep away stroke, when to use the paint in a thin, watercolor like consistency and when to use it in a thicker or dry consistency. We will show you how to paint and blend the many different kinds of brush strokes for the backgrounds, such as vertical, horizontal, and criss-cross strokes. There will also be detailed information about mixing the oil paint colors. The Technique videos will be long playing lessons so it will be broken down into several segments/chapters for easier downloading. So if you wish to skip over some of the general information material, you can do so, or if you wish to view some of the painting demos multiple times, then the different segments will make that easy for you.

TESTIMONIALS

From the first moment I first logged on to Gary and Kathwren Jenkins “PAINT WITH PASSION” online course, I knew this was going to be a winner. I watched the general Information/Technique video first, which was very detailed and informative, even for seasoned painters. There’s some good information in there. Then I watched the first of the Floral painting videos, which was in two parts. The video and audio were very clear and Gary went in to great detail to show what he was doing by effective use of close ups. I look forward to watching again, but this time I will be painting along. I look forward to painting each of the eight lessons.

— Mickey Cline
I would recommend Gary and Kathwren’s eight lesson online course to anyone who is looking to grow as an artist. Gary has a calming voice and challenges you to improve your skills by going out of your comfort zone. Thank you both for making these lessons available.
— Sharon Mick
I am so excited about your new online course. It is exactly to my taste. I like the graphic design, the clarity and the simplicity. I also appreciated very easy registration and payment. Everything went smoothly and quickly. I love the selection of picture themes. They represent all possible types of Vases, Flowers, Backgrounds and Techniques, as well as very detailed instructions. And I also appreciate distinct English, especially as a foreigner whose native language is not English. So far I have seen all the information and technical videos and I am already preparing to paint. When I will paint a picture, I will send a photo. I hope I have expressed my feelings exactly, and I wish you many satisfied students.

I am loving your online course. Simple and easy to navigate layout. Love your style and attitude. The ‘’it’s okay if you mess up’’ has freed me to play and experiment, and relax and have fun. I’ve always been a rule follower. I admit when I watched the first video, I felt a little doubtful of my ability. Lots of encouraging words. The paintings are all beautiful beyond words and offer such a variety. I appreciate the slower techniques video. I have already learned a lot. I have been watching and watching, so yesterday I decided to roll up my sleeves and give it a try. Because the Poppies were a little different then what I’m used to seeing, I admit I was a little hesitant. Once I got started I loved it. Good stretch and learning experience. I struggle more with the small bottom flowers then anything else. Thank you for all you have done for so many years. I do have one problem. I don’t want to do housework, grocery shop or cook now. Having too much fun.
— Mary Murphy
I have known of Gary Jenkins from 30+ years ago when he was painting on National PBS Television. I watched religiously every time he was on. Several years later, I had the opportunity to become a J-CAT, Jenkins Certified Art Teacher. The launch of the Paint With Passion online course is a wonderful opportunity to use the technology available to us now and have a more in depth experience with the Jenkins than the 30 minute TV programs, that until now, were all we had to watch. Kathwren and Gary have done a lot of work. They put forth much effort as well as did a wonderful job in finding the people to assist them in making this experience for us as good as it can be without them being in the room with us.

One thing I think is even better, in my teaching I have found most times that I helped my students too much, that they didn’t learn to correct their painting accidents and mistakes, thus unintentionally making them dependent on me to ‘’fix’’ what they didn’t like. This course will give everyone the chance to mess up, wipe out and try again and make every person a better artist. Nothing is better than learning from our own mistakes and learning how to fix them. I love to learn and I am a firm believer, no matter how long, how much experience we have, or what we know about everything we endeavor to do ..... we never know so much we can’t learn any more. Nor will we ever know it all !

The reference materiel is great. All the descriptions and course materials as well as the patterns and photos are there for us. Good quality filming, sound and lighting and all around good experience for anyone out there no matter what level they were painting before starting this online course.
