DENNIS PERRINPainting from the Inside Out
All levels welcome, basic knowledge of oil and equipment a necessity.Ê

4-days, $700

Dennis will help you realize your potential as an artist by going beyond materials and techniques. Creator of the Perrin Method, Dennis’s teaching covers not only the technical aspects of painting, but the thought processes behind painting with special emphasis on the power of belief and intention. The principle subject will be floral still life in oil but may also include some outdoor painting in a garden or with a figure in the scene. Be prepared to explore the possibilities.

LAURA ROBB / Still Life in Oil
All levels are welcome, but a previous experience in mixing color is necessary. Demonstrations and instruction will be in oil and it is suggested that students use this medium.

4-days, $750

This workshop is for students who want to advance their skills of observation and understand how to take full advantage of their palette. The instructor will explain and show through demonstration studies how certain effects of light and depth can be achieved. She will try to help identify materials and procedures a student may be using that are getting in the way of their progress. We will discuss composition, technique, principles of light and shade and a range of other topics. Most lessons will apply to any medium or subject matter but the focus will be specific to still life in oil. Demonstrations will be done with the intent of illustrating how to handle specific problems rather than producing an entire finished painting and during the class students will be encouraged to adopt a similar attitude with an emphasis on learning and study. It will be 4 days of intense concentration but fun too. Bring a sense of humor.

MARC HANSON / Beyond the Basics
A plein air landscape workshop. Intermediate thru advanced painters, working in oil, pastel or acrylic.

4-days, $650

My workshop is designed to help intermediate to advanced students working in oils or acrylics to explore more advanced considerations in how a painting is conceived and executed. It won’t be about painting specifics,i.e., I won’t be teaching any “how too”s, including “How to paint like me”, but will be demonstrating, talking and teaching about how to be more personal in your approach to “your” painting, exploring your temperament and individual skills, to be more direct in each painting’s statement. That includes exploring skills in developing a solid Concept, and the use of Color, Composition, Value, Edge work and Drawing, to communicate as effectively as you can with each painting. We will concentrate on Concept and its purpose in making paintings that are specific to the idea that they portray. The days will consist of Demonstration, Discussion and Student Practice. I demonstrate and explain everything that I ask students to do. This will be followed by a lot of time for individual painting time, and time for me to meet with each student at their easel for discussion and personal one on one critique. At the end of the workshop there will be a group meeting where we will discuss and critique a selection of the students’ work.

Description:  This really fun and informative workshop will cover the basic principles of oil painting and get you painting simple and easy to understand objects in a short time.  The idea of this workshop is to get you comfortable with the process of painting including, composition, massing, building form, light and shadow and depending on your own style, knowing when a work is finished.    Douglas delivers sound principles of painting that are an incredible foundation for your painting, and whether a beginner or a person who has never even picked up a brush, it will make sense.  Depending on the skill level of each student, students are able to grow and develop at a rate that is to their comfort.  Sometimes the demo is step by step and sometimes the demo is done first and remains as an example you can follow and reference.  The workshop will walk you through a variety of subjects over our 3 day timeframe.  While we will paint from photos Douglas provides and simple studio set ups, it will give you an idea of all of the various types of painting subjects that are available.

Description:  “We will paint simple outdoor still life studies on the first day to help us grasp the meaning of light key.  Next two days, we will be on location painting landscape.  I will be teaching the structure of the landscape—what to include and what to leave out.  On the last day, we will do color studies of the figure (in the Hensche/Hawthorne “mudhead” tradition).  We will concentrate on the development of strong starts, expressing the big masses, light key and aerial perspective with color.  I will be doing demonstrations throughout the workshop.  Each day you will do a color study before lunch, followed by one or two color studies in the afternoon.  You are encouraged to either bring original artwork or photos and talk to me about your vision as an artist.  I will give you some questions to ponder during the week.  I look forward to working with each of you!”  Camille.
