TOM LYNCH 3 DAY WORKSHOP
(2 SPOTS LEFT)
Plein Air Watercolor Workshop
Opening Lecture: Thursday, August 3, 7pm - 9pm
3 Day Workshop: Friday, August 4 - Sunday, August 6 from 9:30am - 4:30pm
Join Tom for a simple and fun way to learn and experience this classic art form. The group will travel together to some of the most beautiful painting sites. Tom will demonstrate and teach you how to translate the landscape into art through a series of simple lessons and exercises. This allows you time to re-connect with the landscape. This connection strengthens the artist's intuition that is used later (in the studio) to make better decisions of color, edges, contrast, depth, symbols, etc. At the end of each day the group will meet for a critique and discussion.
All levels of experience are welcome. $395 per person.
Call (804) 358-2771 or email email@example.com for more information or to register.

MAGGIE SINER 2 DAY WORKSHOP
Workshop Introduction: Friday, December 1 from 6pm - 9pm
2 Day Workshop: Saturday, December 2 - Sunday, December 3 from 10am - 5pm
Color and Shape : Painting is an arrangement of colored shapes. This fact defines the most important truth of learning how to paint. No matter what the actual subject of the painting, an artist must learn to see the world in the language of colors and shapes rather than as nameable objects. Each artist then refines and develops this language in a personal way. Working from observation (still-life) this intensive workshop will stress the nuances of direct visual perception and the importance of selection and simplification (what NOT to paint) in making a strong dynamic painting. We will focus on acquiring color sensitivity, seeing shapes of light and dark, attention to edges, using shape and brushwork for gestural unity, and good studio practices. Previous experience required. $500 per person.
