Seminar on the Philosophy of Sequencing

Sequencing Teacher Training

2020 Dates: TBD  Please call or wmail if interested

(A non-Summer training session may also be scheduled if people are interested; contact us!)

Payment plans and tuition assistance available. 

We want to share the Sequencing approach to painting, and we want it to be shared well and as completely as possible, so we have developed a Teacher Training Program. 

The intention is to offer a deeper immersion into the Sequencing approach, to explore and discuss the underlying concepts and philosophy of "teaching art" and supporting creativity, to share the things we have learned and observed over the years, as well as to deal with the nuts and bolts of presenting a workshop.

Depending on your experience, and how comfortable you are with presenting, you may be ready to present workshops after this training, or you may want to take it again as some people do, or take other Sequencing workshops. 

Sample Schedule

Typically the training takes place over a long weekend (Thursday evening at 5 pm through Sunday about 4:30 pm).

Thursday evening: Sequencing class for participants, slanted toward awareness of the roles of both the student and of the teacher

Friday 1 - 6:30 pm:  Group discussion of underlying ideas, and specifics of the Sequencing approach, begin practice presentations.

Saturday1 - 6:30 pm: Continuation of the discussion, practice presentations, and beginning of more concrete discussion around presenting a workshop to a group

Sunday 10 am: Group preparation and then presentation of a workshop to an outside group invited by RGS and members of the class,

This final session is followed by a short recap and helpful evaluation during our clean-up. Close of the weekend at about 4:30 pm.


We have a Creative Commons agreement: Credit should be given to River Gallery School and Ric Campman whenever Sequencing is presented. A voluntary honorarium (e.g 10% of gross profits) could be donated to RGS when appropriate. We also ask that workshops not be presented within a 50-mile radius of River Gallery School without prior permission. 


Depending on availability, out-of-towners may be able to stay at The Empty Center at Deer Ridge Farm in Townshend for the workshop duration.

RGS is next door to the Latchis Hotel in downtown Brattleboro, and there are numerous motels and air b/n/b possibilities in the area.
