Back in the studio for the following two days, you will learn how to get the most out of your studies and photographs. Bill’s unique teaching style will give you lots of one-on-one attention while working from the inside out with three main values.

JASON SACRAN – Painting The Landscape

JUNE 26 to 28, 2019 – $495

This class will be concentrating on painting landscapes, whether outside, in the studio, or both. Each day will be a different experience and painting. We will be utilizing reference material such as photo, sketches, memory, and imagination in the studio as well as observation, spontaneous reaction, and a direct method approach outside. We will concentrate on process, design, and intent. The instructor will demonstrate each day as well as give group and individual talks, assessments, and critiques. The students will follow along as the instructor guides you through his process and thinking during what would be a few real life-painting sessions for him.

DEBRA NADELHOFFER – Studio Landscape

JULY 25 to 27, 2019 – $450

Bring what medium you would like, but I paint in Oils and Pastels. This workshop is designed to help you paint more painterly from photographs. We will be doing small studies from photos (I will provide some and you can bring your own but I must approve the photos that you will be working from) inside the studio, then choosing how your studies will be used to create a painting. We will work on one or several during the 3 days of the workshop depending on each student’s pace. I will show how to simplify your paintings through the use of your studies keeping the sense of place. I will demo each morning and then will work with the students on their paintings. Some drawing experience is necessary.

In Margaret’s workshops students are taught traditional pastel and oil painting techniques. Working with a live model, students will explore drawing, composition, anatomy, proportion, value, color and pastel and/or oil application. Emphasis will be on developing form using light and shadow using Margaret’s easy step-by-step method.
Bring your digital cameras (with small compact flash memory card), iphones or ipads for a short photo session at the end of day one. We will have a small portable printer with wifi capability and the ability to read your camera’s memory cards and will work from our printed photos on day two. Day three, back to the model.
