“My personal objective during this workshop is to make sure that each and every student experiences advancement.”  Ken DeWaard

DESIGN: To form or conceive in the mind; to intend for a definite purpose.
COMPOSITION: The word composition comes from the Latin componere, meaning “put together”.

We will inevitably be chasing the light and seeing beyond what is there, always looking for more. No matter what we are faced with, it all comes down to design and composition, how we compose it. Utilizing and building on what nature gives us, but not being a slave to it.

We will be working to simplify our shapes, really push to explore our use of temperatures and color, along with controlling our values as well as our edges. Composition and design underlie all of these. All in all we will look to make our paintings fresh, vibrant, and full of light and color. Not being a slave to what is there, but knowing how to interpret the impression of it.

Individualized critique, at the students easel, will form the basis for instruction, as well as an oil painting demonstration on the first morning. 

Students may work in the painting medium of their preference, be it oil, watercolor, pastel or acrylic. A very modest suggested supply list will be available.

All levels welcome. A list of suggested materials will be provided in advance.
Registration Deadlines: Participants must register by the listed deadline – one week prior to the workshop.
