Pastel Painting Techniques Workshop with Lorraine Potocki

September 8 & 9, 2017,  10 AM-4 PM, $245

See what the buzz about pastels is all about and how much fun they can be. Learn pastel painting techniques using hard and soft pastels. This is a workshop for beginners to intermediate pastelists with a lot of individualized attention. You’ll learn the basics and how to take your pastel painting to its next level. We’ll work on composition, values, the use of cool and warm colors, under painting and much more. You’ll learn how to do representational painting as well as abstract. Bring a photo reference of what you’d like to paint. I will also have many you can choose from. Demonstrations and constructive critiques both days. It will really help you change the way you see the world. A materials list will be provided upon registration via PayPal on my website (under workshops) www.lorrainepotocki.com

d76dd838f0793b4f472500c2c5cd85f9c14a9c69cfaaff41a99f71bed4ab3ca7 Student Testimonials: “I attended Lorraine’s introductory class as a “newbie”, with no background in pastels and only the barest understanding of painting. Her class went well beyond pastels, helping me understand basics around composition, drawing and color in a very relaxed and fun environment. Her knowledge applied to all levels in the class, and although everybody had different experiences, her approach allowed us to also learn from each other. Lorraine’s love of art inspired me to release my creative side and her instruction gave me a glimpse of the tips and tricks of the trade. I can’t wait to continue exploring the medium and will be sitting in her class again soon.” --Caroline, Jacksonville Beach, FL“This was one of the best two-day workshops I’ve ever done. The exercises in abstracting were so valuable for someone who has trouble “loosening up”. --Linda, Fernandina Beach, FL

Learn to express yourself in a bold and colorful way with California expressionist Elio Camacho.

elioc"As a painting instructor, my mission is to provide students with the foundation necessary to be creative. My goal is to assist students in capturing the particular mood of the moment and to express themselves in a bold and colorful way. My workshops are very hands-on with an emphasis on easel-side critiques. I believe that giving instruction is important, but showing students how this instruction applies to their individual work is crucial. Based on the student’s level and goals, I develop and program based on each individual’s ability as a painter.” To register, go to Elio's website, ColorRelations.com and pay the $100 required deposit.Final Payment due at workshop.

Clay Monoprints with Mitch Lyon

January  19 & 20, 2018,  10AM - 4 PM,  $225 for Members,   $250 for non-members

 

CLAYPRINTING PROCESSmlyons_red and green checkers on yellow_21x26_monoprint on canvas

The matrix I use is a wet slab of clay. Wet colored clay slips and wet colored clays are used as my “inks”. They are applied to the wet slab, one color over another until the clay is leather-hard. A dampened substrate is placed over the slab and rolled with a wooden rolling pin [my press]. The pressure from the rolling pin pulls a thin layer of clay from the slab. Many monoprints can be pulled without recharging the slab. Get ready to use clay in a very different way.  Students can pay their fee to Mitch directly by calling his cell, (302-545-4839), to give him their credit card info, or send a check to Mitch Lyons, PO Box 40, New London, PA 19360.  To learn more, visit www.mitchlyons.com
