"Painting the Figure (all media welcome)"
July 30 - August 1, 2018

Award-winning artist, Peggi Kroll-Roberts worked as a fashion and advertising illustrator before making the transition into fine art. Using intense color and value to accentuate her subject, she moved into fine art with a bold palette, a love for small paintings and a very loose style that achieves a lot with a few very energetic brush strokes. She prefers to suggest reality than render it. Peggi will work with students in the medium of their choice - acrylic, watercolor, oil or gouache.

"Freedom in Watermedia"
September 6-8, 2018

This workshop is designed to help students (beginning, intermediate or advanced) paint in an intuitive manner starting without preconceived notions or outcome. There will be no preliminary planning or drawing. The process will dictate direction as students use a variety of materials and techniques to implement color, texture, line, shape and value. The process starts with arbitrary mark making. Students will continue working transparent to opaque building layers with watercolor, acrylic, gesso and other materials. There will be ongoing evaluation of work in progress and the use of compositional design elements. It is entirely possible finished work may be figurative or representational but the goal is to produce aesthetically pleasing work which is unique and reflective of the artist’s mind.
Location: Lowell, Michigan
Instructor: Stan Kurth, NWS
Cost: $325.00
