Taking Plein Air into the Studio with Dee Beard Dean May 23-25

Date: 23 May 2017 09:00 AM to 25 May 2017 12:00 PM
Details: This workshop is geared toward intermediate and advanced artists who are striving to bring their work up to a new level. Artists will receive challenging group and individualized instruction in studio painting. Dee will observe the artists’ works and help them to improve rather than change their individual styles. The emphasis will be on learning to see value changes, color temperatures, and composition. We will be building arrangements of abstract shapes that will form a strong foundation for the painting. There will be extensive studies on color temperature and value that will make the students’ paintings “sing” and vibrate with evocative color. There will be short lectures and demos in the mornings. The remainder of the day will be spent painting and Dee will be working with artists on an individual basis. Instruction will be with oils, however all mediums are welcome.
