Recently transplanted from Santa Fe's painting, exhibiting and teaching scene, Jakki Kouffman is now living in St. Petersburg, Florida. She is proud to announce her new Florida teaching affiliations with the Dunedin Fine Arts Center  and the Morean Arts Center in St. Petersburg.


Fall 2017

On Mondays this fall, Kouffman will teach Acrylic Still Life Painting at the Morean Arts Center. During Fall Session 1, she will teach three classes: on September 11, 18 and 25. During Fall Session 2, she will teach six classes: on November 6, 13, 20, 27 and December 4. These courses will serve as introductions to the use of acrylic and acrylic mediums and how they lend brilliance as well as texture to the study of still life. Topics will include how to determine value, chroma and intensity in color mixing, as well as different methods for setting up the optimal arrangement of still life objects in the space. 

On October 27th & 28th, Jakki will teach a pastel workshop at DFAC called Pastel Brilliance - Underpainting with Pizzazz. This workshop will offer “underpainting” strategies for retooling the chromatic glow of your pastels from the bottom-most layers. Bring flair to your final statement with brighter beginnings. Tuition: $225 (members)/$250 (non-members)


This fall she will present an art talk at DFAC’s Coffee & Conversation series, which will take place on November 9th from 12:00 noon to 1:00 pm. Admission is $5.00 (free to DFAC members). 


On November 10 & 11, Jakki will teach an acrylic workshop called Acrylic, Meet Your Future Better Half. Watch how combining color with liquid mediums, solid gels and opaque pastes helps to magnify sheen, transparency, texture and chromatic brilliance in your acrylic paintings. Tuition: $225 (members)/$250 (non-members)


On Saturday, December 2, she will participate in DFAC’s free annual Demo Day event. Faculty members in every medium and genre will set up their easels and workstations between 10:00 am - 2:00 pm to answer questions from prospective students about upcoming winter term classes. 


Winter 2018


Jakki Kouffman will be teaching 6-week courses at the Dunedin Fine Arts Center during the Winter I & II terms. Watch the website and the printed catalog for dates and times.
