"Painting Still Life and Reflections"
March 9-10, 2024
 

Join us for this 2-day workshop with Marla Greenfield! We will be painting a still life together, step by step, that will include reflections on silver. This will be a valuable lesson that can be translated into painting other reflective surfaces including glass and water. Students will receive clear instruction and learn how to break the process of creating a painting down into manageable steps that can be used to approach virtually any subject matter. The class will cover glazing and layering, “learning” to see, using wet into wet techniques to let the paints combine on the paper, how to create rich dark values, and tackling reflective surfaces.

"Color Theory Through Drawing"
May 4, 2024
 

Paloma Martinez bases her artistic practice on color theory, and is excited to share her passion for it. This workshop explores color and its theory through drawing and a detailed lecture. Students will learn how to use color to manipulate drawing composition, create harmony, and to contextualize their desired aesthetic and conceptual framework. Students will be provided an array of materials to deepen their understanding of color (i.e. pastels, color pencils, color cut-outs, watercolors) and will also obtain guidance on how to use these materials.

"Summer Solstice Plein Air Watercolor Workshop"
June 18-21, 2024
 

Enhance your painting skill and technique, guided by a popular instructor, New York/Key West artist Susan Sugar. Each evening begins with a group critique with the goal of becoming comfortable sharing your process with other painters. After the group critique, students disperse to paint on their own. Sugar circulates from person to person, offering individual counsel, as needed. The workshop culminates with a final critique and potluck at Sugar’s home/studio Turtle House and an exhibition of student work hosted by The Studios of Key West at a later date. With a background in dance and architecture, Susan Sugar interprets life in terms of rhythm, space, and light, recreating what she sees with her brush.
