In this workshop, we will paint from fresh flowers and still life compositions.  Artists will use these subjects as the starting point to examine some of the very fundamentals of painting.  Mastery of these fundamentals will give you artistic freedom to explore in any direction your own creativity may direct you. When these basic concepts become second nature, artists are released to express their own voice in their own way.  Understanding light and color temperature, values, the varieties of edges and the expressive use of impasto brings a level of confidence that allows you to become the artist you want to be.  

The painters are encouraged to request specific demonstrations, lecture topics and discussions throughout the event.  Because every class is different and because all levels will be accepted, there will be varying interests.  Each painter is important and at a different point in their development.  Helping and encouraging each artist at their own level of development will be an emphasis of this workshop.
