2019 WORKSHOP DATES: Workshops are held Saturday & Sunday in 2-D room at ASiF Studios

Feb 23-24,   9am-3pm      
Under-Painting - Working From A Photo  /   Sorry, this workshop is FULL.

In this workshop, we’ll paint from our own photos, using a value under-painting to begin.
The painting may be of any subject matter, (ie; landscape, a still life, etc) and any size, up to 24 x 36.
While learning a successful method of beginning a painting, participants will also gain skills in composition,
color harmony and other components necessary to a good painting.
This workshop is open to all levels - beginners welcome!

April 13-14, 9am-3pm      
Understanding Color Harmony
Simple, beautiful color... a quantum subject that could take a lifetime of study!
Yet, in these two days you can come away with enough tools and understanding to support all of your creative endeavors,
even if what you do is not acrylic painting!
Through the exploration of limited palettes, color exercises and color-mixing, we'll apply our discoveries to a few small paintings.
This workshop is open to all levels, beginner to advanced.

June 1-2     9am-3pm      
Creating Texture  /   $250 
This workshop is about the fun of using texture mediums and how to incorporate them into your paintings for dramatic effect!
In a playful and experimental atmosphere, we’ll paint a water surface, flowers and an abstract painting.
Supply list will include 3 canvases and 2 mediums and will be sent upon registration.
Open to all levels - beginners welcome!

Aug 10-11   9am-3pm      
Large Format Painting  /   $250 / Sorry, this workshop is FULL
Painting large can be liberating! In this workshop, we’ll paint from our own photos, using a value under-painting to begin.
Canvas size should be whatever is large for you, up to 30” x 40”. Naturally, you’ll need bigger brushes and more paint and,
if you love painting larger, ultimately more storage!
This workshop is suited for people who’ve painted some before, not absolute beginners. 

Oct 26-27 9am-3pm      
Abstracted Landscapes  /   $250
As we grow as artists, many wish to abandon the detail in their work for more abstraction. Using composition
and value exercises to widen our ‘normal seeing’ is the focal point of this workshop. We will paint several small paintings.
This workshop is open to all levels - beginners welcome!
