Summer 2019 Workshops

March 2, 2019

My Rock Valley students have inquired about painting workshops for this summer. Unfortunately, the classroom and facility we would prefer to utilize is not available until August. So, we are looking to provide the following;

Basket of Blossoms 2 – Watercolor on Arches 140# CP Paper – 12″ x 9″

August 5, 6 and 7

Dynamics of Shadows and Light: A Bolder Approach to Watercolor

Gain insight to energize your watercolors by creative, strategic and decisive utilization of exaggerated light and shadows. Demonstrations and discussions will focus on planning your design and composition as well as sparking your imagination. Discover methods for pushing negative space to yield positive results in your artwork. Exercises will concentrate on developing your creativity and daring to create more dynamic paintings.  Students should already be familiar with basic watercolor techniques. In addition to your supplies, please bring a couple sheets of Arches 140# CP paper and a few reference photos with subjects of interest to the student. Students will have the opportunity to work independently on their own paintings.

Patti’s Hen House – Plein Air – Oil on Linen Panel – 12″ x 16″

August 12, 13 and 14

Ideas for Creative Studio Painting in Oil and Acrylic Painting

Expand your ability to translate and capture imagery on canvas as you strengthen your observational skills, build a reliable process for planning and develop your unique voice. This workshop will help you to identify a focus for creating your art and developing a pattern for success. Demonstrations and discussions will focus on planning your design and composition as well as sparking your imagination. This workshop requires basic experience and training in oil or acrylic. Students should be competent with the techniques and tools of the medium, developed drawing and design skills and the ability to work independently.

Assuming that the weather cooperates, I plan to do a couple outdoor demonstrations at the facility.
