"Color, Light & Form: Still Life Painting in Oil"
February 5 & 6, 2021
 

Color, Light & Form are the building blocks that form the foundation of paintings that work, no matter the subject matter. Working from a still life set up, students will learn how skillful manipulation of these elements can create work that resonates with the viewer. Students will investigate the importance of edges, color harmonies and compositional elements found in good paintings. Rediscover the basics of making a beautiful painting! Helen Vaughn – As a painter, I am continually fascinated by the properties of color, light, and shadow as they affect both the image and my own sense of time, place and inner harmony.

"Mastering Skies & Reflections in Oil, Acrylic or Pastel"
August 26-29, 2021
 

Master your landscape painting and join South Carolina artist Michael Story for this four day workshop as we use the sky and water as a dramatic design element in our painting’s composition. You’’ll begin your painting with an initial charcoal drawing, followed by a color wash applied over the image. Starting with shadow colors, you’ll begin blocking in your painting, then progressing dark to light to completion. Building final layers of color and avoiding muddy mixtures, you’ll achieve fresh, bright color while capturing depth, drama and mood to your work. He will demonstrate and provide photo reference to paint from if desired along with color exercises you may complete after the workshop. For more information, visit michaelstory.com.
