Plein Air Concepts - Any Medium - May 2-4, 2017

Chad Smith

​Please join me for a 3 day plein air workshop in beautiful Pinehurst, NC. This workshop will be practical in nature with a focus on your needs and goals. Our time together will include demonstrations, presentations, group critiques, discussion, and lots of painting time with personal easel critique. 
All levels and all mediums are invited. I intend to give you time-tested tools and concepts that transcend medium! 
But don’t worry, I have experience in oil, watercolor, acrylic, ink, pastel, and dry mediums to work on those technical issues as well. Practical issues will be addressed such as:
Deciding what to paint (and why to paint it!)
Composition (get this right and you’re home-free)
Visual tools (shape ,value, edges, color)
A logical procedure (why re-invent the wheel?)
Knowing when to stop (just the right amount of detail)

ABSTRACTION BOOT CAMP - Acrylics, Mixed Media - August 4, 5 and 6, 2017 - 10 am - 4 pm each day

Joe DiGiulio

Join Joe in this informative three day painting workshop intended to help the emerging artist “get over their fears”, of painting abstractly in acrylics, on both paper and canvas. The Abstraction Boot Camp is designed to put you through the paces of discovering your inner creative self through fast paced "Speed Painting" exercises, developing your own Color Theory and getting over the fear of "making a mark". Learn to get over yourself as experimentation is encouraged to find the intuitive "You" in your work. This 3 day workshop is designed for artists wanting to develop their own style in abstraction through the use of Color, Line, Texture and Shapes. Be prepared for fast paced “Action painting” in the spirit of the American Abstract Expressionists of the 1950’s and 60’s. Check out works by de Kooning, Motherwell, Diebenkorn, Kline, Rothko and Pollack for inspiration.
