DRAWING PEOPLE MADE EASY
with JULIA CARPENTER

FREE DEMO
Saturday, May 28, 2016
2:00 pm - 3:30 pm


Julia has been drawing portraits and people her whole life. Her portraits are instantly recognizable both for the subject and her style. Of course there are no tricks to making a successful work of art--but successful artists like Julia have learned methods that work. She will share with you some of her most dependable methods and techniques for drawing people that look the way you want them to look.

While our friends tackle "War and Peace" once again this summer, we will be drawing the people around us everywhere we go. A sketchbook is so much more of a remembrance than a few photos. And the drawings we make today are the embryos of tomorrow's paintings.

FREE DEMO: Painting Clouds in Oils with LIN LA MER. May 29, 2016. 11-12:30

PAINTING CLOUDS in OILS
with LIN LA MER

FREE DEMO!
Sunday, May 29, 2016
11:00 am - 12:30 pm


We love gorgeous paintings filled with moody clouds. Often the clouds are what draw us to the image. But do we avoid painting those pesky clouds?

While teaching her popular oil painting classes, Lin has noticed that students avoid the clouds. "They are three-dimensional objects," Lin explains. "They have volume and shape with shadow. The retreat into the distance and cast shadows on the land."

Maybe we can convince Lin to do a clouds workshop. A demo is great but I'd like to get a few canvases filled with some stormy weather. How about you!

PrimaTek Watercolors are fabulous mixing pigments. They are perfect glazing pigments. Many granulate but some do not. The 38 PrimaTek pigments make a complete palette all on their own.

The demo previews Joan's full-day workshop of painting with PrimaTeks. Using paintings in various stages of completion, Joan will demonstrate techniques of building a watercolor painting using the PrimaTek palette. Classic color theory strategies such a primary, secondary, complementary, and analogous colors show the PrimaTeks at their best. It's a big colorful adventure!
