501 Forget the Details! Paint with Expression! A Pastel Workshop

Shelly Eager

Many of us seem to get so caught up with details—our lives are run by details—but our paintings should not! Spend two days with pastel artist Shelly Eager to learn new ways to let go of the details and paint the impression of a scene with expression. Shelly will guide students through many loosening-up activities and provide practical tips on how to let go of all the tightness we tend to paint with. You will feel freer and more energetic by the end of this workshop!

527 Small Format Landscape Drawing the Painting

Kathleen Jacobs

Come paint the inspiring landscape and embrace the exciting challenge of painting and drawing outdoors. Simple hikes will take class members to the riverbanks, the edge of marshes, and the coastline. Initially, there will be an emphasis on drawing the form and structure of the landscape, seeking a certain grace and order from nature. There will be an added emphasis on finding visual unity when composing a sketch that will eventually become a painting. Working small, participants will work quickly to build their paintings allowing the process of drawing from life to create work with a spirit of place. Students of intermediate to advanced levels are welcome, open to all painters using oil, watercolor, acrylic or gouache.

541 Monoprinting in the Sun

Dan Welden

This is a three-day intensive workshop using the solarplate process. Along with many “tricks of the trade,” participating artists will capture their heartfelt images in large format images with unique multiples. Dan Welden will demonstrate various methods of bringing surprise elements of printmaking onto fine quality paper. This workshop may prove to be revolutionary for the “conceptual artist” to witness, and at the same time, catapulting the emotion of the “experimental artist” into new dimensions. Please note: Solarplates will be available for purchase at 25% off regular pricing and should be ordered before July 11th.
