Color and design: the core of my workshops

“My need to understand the how and why of the painting process is something I instinctively share with others. I try to provide students with a broad understanding of color and design… and then help each individual to apply these concepts in a unique and imaginative
way that expresses th
eir personal thoughts and feelings.”
— Christopher Schink

Internationally known artist Christoper Schink works in a semi‐abstract style, creating paintings notable for the strength and drama of their pictorial design. You can view some of his work on this WordPress site but you’ll see a lot more on his main website, ChristopherSchink.com

Toph has over 45 years of teaching experience; he’s conducted workshops in most states in the US, as well as in Canada, Mexico, and overseas.

He designs his workshops to help each painter find and express a personally satisfying direction or style. Whether one is new to painting or an experienced artist, (realistic/abstract/nonobjective), Toph’s guidance and mentoring helps artists apply contemporary concepts in color and design to make their work more personally expressive.

A typical workshop will include demonstrations and discussions on design, color and contemporary directions in painting. After 45 years of teaching, his goal is to help students find a more personal way to work, so that students leave with new ideas, a clearer direction and newfound inspiration.
