Landscape Workshop — Painting from the Head and Heart
with Roger Parsons

quiettime

This oil painting workshop will focus on:  Color Mixing (value & hue) using cool and warm colors, and Composition issues.  This is an opportunity to explore and experiment to find a process that makes sense to you, and ultimately, a process that allows you to express your passion for what you see.  We need the intellectual/analytical side [our Head], to express the passionate side [our heart].  Roger will demonstrate different painting approaches with still life, and he’ll demonstrate his approach to landscape.  If you’ve taken from Roger before, you know he explains all aspects of his decision-making — composition, color, and more; why he put a bush there?….why is the tree that size? …and why did he use ultramarine blue instead of cobalt, or quinacridone red instead of alizarin?  Students will receive individual help.

(Sat – Sun) Feb 23-24, and March 2-3, 2019 (9am – 4pm)

Tuition: $300 for HCAF Members & $340 for Non-Members

Watercolor with Ken Hosmer

Ken-Hosmer

Explore color through a unique approach.

This workshop is for anyone wishing to paint with dramatically enriched COLOR! 

Ken reveals ‘color secrets’ and design ideas each day in this powerful workshop. He offers guidelines which encourage you to creatively interpret painting subjects in your own style. Painting demonstrations emphasize free, spontaneous painting and cover a variety of subjects, including landscape, flowers, human figures, or animals.

Ken clearly explains his artistic method as he paints, organizes ideas into simple terms, and in a positive and gentle manner, skillfully pinpoints and verbalizes exactly what your painting needs for improvement. This makes the class ideal for beginning and advanced students. A typical day might include demonstration and lecture in the morning with class work time and individual help in the afternoon. The workshop ends with an uplifting and informative critique session.

(Mon. – Fri.) June 17 – 21, 2019
