Michael Ireland



Saturday & Sunday, March 20 & 21, 2010

9:00 – 4:00pm


After years of balancing the world of corporate design and fine art, Michael made the commitment to become a fulltime fine artist in the year 2000. In that time since, he has built a reputation not only for his grand landscapes of the prairies and vistas he paints but for his talent as a teacher as well.

This workshop is primarily geared to intermediate levels, however all levels of talent are invited to come as we learn and share talents with the class. Subjects such as brush strokes, materials and color technique will be reinforced by short demonstrations & examples. Using this knowledge as a basis we will move into understanding the painting process by themed exercise such as Negative & Positive space. As the workshop progresses, Mastering the Wash, Color, Wet in Wet, Keep It Simple and Throw Away the Brush! will become the subjects for the days study. Generous time will be allowed for class painting, demos and critiques. No matter what you consider your talent, you are guaranteed to come out of the workshop with a painting, and better yet, closer to the painter you aspire to be.
