"Painting the Head"
August 7-10, 2019
 

Painting from a live model is an effective way to improve skills in painting any subject matter. In this workshop you will receive instruction on drawing, design, proper value and color use, and edge control. To benefit most from this class an artist should have some drawing skills and a working knowledge of the medium they are using. The workshop will consist of power point presentations, lectures, demos, and every student will get individual instruction at their easel. While most of the demos/instruction are geared for oil painters, acrylic artists, familiar with their medium, will also benefit and are welcome. A full color booklet of class notes is included.

All of Gayle's classes and workshops include step-by-step instruction and personal guidance. Gayle is classically trained as well as being an excellent instructor. Helping students build a solid foundation of strong basic skills is one of Gayle's most outstanding assets. She is also encouraging, positive and easy to be with. In this class we will explore the Earth Primary Palette (a limited palette) and its usefulness as the foundation for paintings which employ the full Impressionist Palette. You will learn how to create depth and light in your autumn canvas, even when the trees are red in the distance, and green up close! Class size is limited to seven, so don't wait!

"Plein Air Painting"
October 21-24, 2019
 

The workshop will kick off with a lecture and demo. Students receive instruction on principals of painting ranging from drawing, color, value, composition, color theory and so much more. Every day, you will apply what is being taught by getting outside and paint with full days in the field seeing, recording and observing nature as it changes. Suzie will demo on location and offer one-on-one instruction to all the students while they paint in scenic locations. Suzie’s personal goal is to identify every student’s level and provide strategies to progress through group instruction, example, and individual interaction. Her humorous, informative manner makes tackling this multi-faceted challenge a fun and rewarding experience.
