News as of April 19, 2016

Take a look at these new events:

*Dan Mondloch – Plein Air Workshop June 7-9
Here is what Dan says:

Painting outdoors is exhilarating because you get to stretch your legs, enjoy
fresh air, and immerse yourself in inspirational subjects. While inspiration runs
high when painting outside, sometimes the amount of material to paint from
can be overwhelming. In this workshop I will show you how I select a subject and
composition from the expansive 360 degree view. Learn to simplify your subject
and find strength in the power of large shapes. With the big shapes taken care
of, it’s easier to loosen up and find confidence in using fluid washes, expressive
brushwork, and bold color. There will be a plein air demonstration each morning
and afternoon, with plenty of time for students to paint and explore on their
own. Painting locations to be determined (input welcome).
