Class Description: For beginners, this is an introduction for students who would like to learn oil paints. More advanced painters are welcome as well, as many artists struggle to learn how to bring their paintings to completion. There is very basic art instruction; perspective, shading, etc., and then how to use your paint to achieve your goal. Use of mediums, kinds of brushes, different ways to execute a painting. Emphasis on accuracy, learning to observe, gaining confidence in your skills so you can go your own way. For artists who have experience and would like to enhance their knowledge, you may bring paintings you are working on or projects you'd like to start. Having trouble with certain techniques? Want to learn more about finishing a painting? Bring it in! Classes are ongoing, so you may attend as long as you like. It is important that ALL students contact me before attending the class.


About the Instructor:
: I was lucky to find a wonderful instructor over fifteen years ago who shared his knowledge of academic painting. Since then, I have been perfecting my technique - after all those years there is always something new to learn. I love realism and that is my speciality, but I still like to go from one end of the spectrum to the other with it. Thus, my work ranges from super-detailed trompe l'oeil to more loose and colorful paintings; all the while exploring what paint can do and honing my skills. I enjoy painting just about anything, from animals to still life; each subject has its own set of challenges and I learn from them all. My work has been exhibited in local and national galleries and collected in the US and overseas. Contact George at 772 460 0894 or glovefl@msn.com for any questions regarding this class. Preregistration required: Call 772-466-1010.

EMULATE THE MASTERS

 

Emulate the Masters - Style and technique are symbiotic. We develop techniques that emulate styles we admire, and we can use that skill to forge our own style or even develop a new one. In this series of monthly workshops, students will explore the life and talent of a master painter from different eras and movements and using this knowledge to improve their own style and perhaps even forging a new one.

Class Description: Participants will learn the basics of hand building in clay. Participants will explore both sculptural and functional form. Instruction will include use of slab roller and clay extruder along with use of hand tools and various methods of clay construction. 

About the Instructor: I grew up in Indiana and earned a BFA at Murray State University in Kentucky. From there I lived in the South Carolina Low Country and tropical, festive Key West. Each of these places has influenced my art perspective.

This is what I believe about art. There are no mistakes. There are no rules. And the process of creating art is most important. Color is also important, but black and white is dramatic.

This perspective is reflected in my whimsical, imaginative collages and sculptures. My reoccurring characters, often with funny and quirky titles, allow your thought to create their own story. Sometimes surprising, always colorful, my artwork hopes to bring a smile.

 

Materials List

Basic clay tool set. Can be purchased here or at a local craft store.


Apron or wear clothing that can get muddy.

Class Description: The versatility of watercolor pencil is endless.  It can be used to speed up the color pencil drawing process by creating an under-painting for your colored pencil layers.  Watercolor pencil can add fine detail to your finest watercolors.  You can combine watercolor pencils with pen and ink for mixed media art, or, use watercolor pencils alone to layer and glaze for a piece of art that can stand entirely on its own.  It is a terrific medium to take along while traveling as supplies are minimal; pencils, brush, and paper!

About the Instructor: Marlene Geraci is a popular instructor at art guilds and foundations throughout the Pennsylvania and Florida. Award winning artist and instructor, her work has been exhibited at venues across the eastern seaboard and can also be found in Ann Kullberg’s book, CP Hidden Treasures II, November, 2014.
