Fast and Free: Fall Plein Air Painting

Instructor: Charles Shurcliff

Get to the heart of the matter and learn to paint the essence of the landscape. Learn how to approach each painting using color theory with simplified shapes. Train your eye to see areas of light and dark by experimenting with color and value. You will create a painting reflecting the light and magic of the scene in front of you. Charlie will teach you to de-emphasize small details and emphasize the broader picture. Simplicity is the key.

Shelly Eager - Painting City Scenes with Expression and Looseness

Painting City Scenes with Expression and Looseness

ALL LEVELS

Instructor: Shelly Eager

Many artists travel to capture new ideas for paintings. We shoot hundreds of photos to use as painting references, and when we look at them upon our return, we feel that they don’t quite capture the essence of what we saw. Join Shelly as she teaches you ways to get down the feeling of those places with energy, color and practically no detail. She will teach you ways to capture the essence of the place, get the angles right and express the energy of your travel photo references with color and movement.

Robert Carsten - Passionate Color in the Pastel Landscape

Passionate Color in the Pastel Landscape

ALL LEVELS

Instructor: Robert Carsten

This exciting workshop is designed to take us out of our comfort color zone, allowing us to unharness our creative potential and find our own personal color voices and choices within a pastel painting. We will practice building color design concepts that may best express our ideas and feelings about our subject through a series of exercises that progress and lead us through exploratory as well as finished paintings. Examples and demonstrations, at-easel and group critiques, and lots of painting time will make for a fun and educational experience.

MASTER WORKSHOP: Ken Kewley - A Thousand Collages and the Landscape

A Thousand Collages and the Landscape

ALL LEVELS

Instructor: Ken Kewley

This workshop is an exploration of pure abstraction and abstraction in landscape through collage. We will draw and paint by means of collage. The statements, ‘You cannot make it up’ and ‘You must make it up’ are both true; we must let both guide us. What we put down on our paper are real things that we can adjust, just as we move through the landscape looking for something to paint. It is this abstraction that we must adjust if we are working purely abstractly or if we are working from life. We will make hundreds of abstract collages. Then we will travel back to kindergarten when we did not need to set up our easels in front of our houses in order to draw our world. Next, we will move into the third dimension and make a world from corrugated cardboard. This will become our model. We will work from it and, with our rediscovered freedom, without it. All along, we will share a path away from copying and rendering toward a more exciting and, ultimately, a more real picture of what we find beautiful in the world.

Ron Rosenstock - Creating Meaningful Art, Mat Cutting and Framing

Creating Meaningful Art, Mat Cutting and Framing

ALL LEVELS

Instructor: Ron Rosenstock

This one-day workshop is designed for anyone wishing to learn more about creating meaningful art and how to mat and frame his/her twodimensional artwork for presentation. Ron will draw upon his long career in photography by engaging participants in an exercise to sharpen visual thinking, an exercise he created in response to words by Meister Eckhart, a 13th century German theologian and philosopher: “Art is not just for special people, but everyone is a special kind of artist.” After lunch, Ron will demonstrate mat cutting and framing. Each workshop member will have a hands-on opportunity to cut several mats. Ron will provide all materials needed for this workshop and a resource list.

Liz Awalt - Drawing Marathon

Drawing Marathon

ALL LEVELS

Instructor: Liz Awalt

This workshop will get you in top-notch drawing shape! We’ll explore a wide range of materials and approaches to drawing while working from a still life throughout the weekend. You will come to appreciate the limitations of black and white, but we’ll also explore a wide range of color. Instead of laboring over a drawing, the class will work quickly and produce lots of work, allowing you to lose yourself in the process and let go of the desire to make something “good.” You will stretch your body, mind, and your idea of what drawing is, and in the process, develop a drawing practice you can continue with after the workshop ends.

ALL LEVELS

Instructor: Alexandra Sheldon

Collage can be a great medium for loosening up and having fun. The instructor will get participants so busy making art that they forget feeling anxious! This class is open to complete beginners as well as experienced artists looking for new and fresh directions. We will explore color, light, movement, texture, composition, story and space. Materials for the collages will be made in class by painting papers, printmaking on papers, making different kinds of transfers, experimenting with faux acrylic encaustic techniques, and integrating natural elements like leaves, sand and bark. Emphasis will be on being together in a supportive and creative space.
