"Bigger, Faster, Fresher, Looser Abstract Painting"
June 20-22, 2019
 

Have you ever wondered how to Loosen-Up your painting style? Paint with more Freedom? Be more Spontaneous? Be more Expressive? If the answer to any of these questions is yes, then my Bigger, Faster, Fresher, Looser Abstract Painting Workshop is for you! I will teach you how to do each of these realizing there should also be a firm foundation of structure for your paintings using shape, value, color, edges and center of interest. This workshop is also about learning to loosen-up and paint more freely. All who attend will be able to apply the lessons learned to their own style of painting. This workshop is non media specific. All who utilize watercolor, acrylic, and oil are welcome.

"Juan Ramirez - The New Portrait"
June 21-24, 2019
 

In this workshop we will explore the relationship between realism and abstraction to create a strong portrait. Each day Juan will demonstrate how he designs and paints a realistic portrait that begins with strong abstract statement. This workshop will challenge artists of all levels to observe, compose and paint realistically using a proven method. Juan Ramirez is an experienced, sought after instructor. He will help each student identify their strengths, and offer suggestions for improvement. On June 25, join us for an optional visit to the National Gallery of Art. Juan is spilling over with knowledge of the old master artists he has studied, and he will share how he applies his observations of their work in his own paintings.
