"Using Abstract Thinking to Create Illustrative Paintings"
August 23-25, 2022
 

Aline is known for her vivid paintings and creative use of color. Working from their own photo references, students will transform these into pastel or oil paintings using the principles of color and design. Aline will emphasize the understanding of color in terms of temperature, intensity, and value while translating those ideas using pastel or oil techniques. Experimenting with exciting different colors while maintaining the value and intensity will serve as a great exercise in helping students expand their color sensitivity. Ten stroke exercises are fun to develop confidence in both decision-making and interesting strokes. Let’s say goodbye to overworked tight pastels and oils and learn to create loose, bold but still illustrative paintings.

"Landscape Painting in Oils"
October 3-5, 2022
 

During this landscape painting class, TJ Cunningham will focus on the two challenges that he considers the greatest impediment to a successful landscape painting. First, how to create atmosphere, and second, how to sculpt the landscape so that the trees seem vertical while the surrounding landscape appears flat. Painting time will take place in the studio and will address ideas behind a good landscape painting. TJ will begin each day with a presentation of his working process. The attendees will also receive clear instruction on how to simplify the landscape in an expressive way. Paint quality, value pattern, and abstraction will all be discussed as valuable tools when used in landscape painting.

"Painting the Portrait in Oils"
October 7-9, 2022
 

Painting portraits can be highly rewarding, but it can also be intimidating! Perhaps your past attempts have looked flat and formless. Maybe the skin colors have been "chalky" or "muddy." If these struggles sound familiar, you are not alone. I'm excited to show you how to conquer these challenges and many more in this information-packed workshop! I'll begin each morning by sharing vital principles for portrait painting. Then, you'll see those concepts in action as I demonstrate painting a portrait from a live model. I'll verbalize my thoughts and show you my process from start to finish. Each afternoon, you'll have the opportunity to paint from a live model as I offer one-on-one assistance and critiques.
