"Intuitive Abstract Painting"
June 15-16, 2018
 

The purpose of intuitive painting is to free yourself of all judgments about yourself as an artist and to trust your in-born creativity and intuition. In a relaxed atmosphere, students will make a number of nonobjective (abstract) paintings. Students will use acrylic paint and a variety of tools usually not associated with painting, like cut cardboard, pieces of cloth, sponges, combs, twigs, even the palms of their hands if they wish. The second part of the workshop will focus on choosing the best parts of their large paintings with the use of viewfinders, and turning them into independent art pieces ready to be framed, or reproduced. The workshop is all about allowing yourself to be the artist you truly are.

Are you ready for some fun?! Students will be working with small canvases and big brushes. Jerry’s goal is to have the students complete between 12 to 24 small paintings in this 2-day class. We will focus on simple shapes, values and composition. We will work from photo references, printed or on your tablet or iPad. Scottsdale Artists’ School is planning a major fund raising event in the future utilizing students’ 6”x 6” paintings. Your art could help support our wonderful school.

"Watercolor Fun and Free at Tanque Verde Ranch"
November 26-30, 2018
 

Watercolor Fun and Free is a motivational workshop for beginning, as well as experienced painters. Karlyn offers enthusiastic, informational demonstrations and gives individual help enriched by sharing her original finished work. She is an upbeat instructor, who helps the students cultivate a loose, free style of working. She teaches with tireless energy and her high-spirited humorous teaching style makes beginners feel comfortable and challenges the advanced student. The real emphasis is on each student’s individual expression and development of their own painting style. The week will feature floral, landscape and abstract themes. Every day will begin with a demonstration, followed by individual help. Every painting will be critiqued.

"Quiltworx University 2019 at Tanque Verde Ranch"
February 7-11, 2019
 

Six months before the workshop, our team will help guide you through the process of customizing your personal project using design elements never before released by Quiltworx. Use the Quiltster tool (6-month membership is included) to design a project on your own or work with our design team one-on-one to create your project. All projects (kits are purchased separately) will be completed using a wide range of current and popular fabric collections selected by the local quilt shop from companies such as Hoffman Fabrics, Timeless Treasures, Free Spirit, and more! We will prepare the kit for you, have it waiting at the event, and bring a team of instructors ready to teach whatever you need to know to make your design.
