There is no better way of knowing and remembering what a place is really like than by drawing and writing.

Slowing down and taking it in, and filling the senses is all that is required. So, with our simple tools of paper, pencil, pen, and watercolors we will breathe in its historic charm in word and image.

"Layers: Oil and Cold Wax"
September 20-22, 2019
 

This three-day workshop on abstract painting incorporates cold wax medium, tube oils, pigment sticks, powdered pigments, and a variety of implements to create textures, color fields and selective mark making. We will “push the limits” of our mediums and welcome the surprises along the way. Once comfortable with the basic techniques we will look at form and content, deliberate and accidental mark making, starting points, titling of work, and working in series. Technique demonstrations combined with student experimentation, group discussions, presentations, and printed resources add to the experience, raising awareness and appreciation for the content and meaning within good abstract art. Described as inspiring and life-changing, this workshop will enliven your art practice and unleash your creative voice!

"Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain"
September 23-27, 2019
 

This intensive class is designed for individuals with little or no prior drawing training and perhaps believe that learning to draw well is only possible for those lucky people with “inborn talent”. However, it has been proven that the global skill of drawing any perceived object, person or place requires five basic component perceptual skills – perception of edges, spaces, relationships, lights and shadows, and the whole or gestalt. Students participate in daily drawing exercises and critiques. Bomeisler received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Pratt Institute Brooklyn, New York in 1975, and has been a working and showing artist since then. He taught alongside his mother, Betty Edwards, since 1988 and since her retirement in 1998. Visit drawright.com.
