JUNE

Paint Pets or Wildlife Using Acrylic Paints

With Master Artist: Bruce Marion

Saturday and Sunday, June 27 & 28, 2020 --- 9:00AM - 4:00PM

Mountain Artists Guild, 228 N Alarcon St., Prescott, AZ 86301

Bruce Marion, a noted Arizona artist, is a Contemporary Impressionist who paints compelling abstracted landscapes, cityscapes and figurative or wildlife paintings. His paintings have rich colorations and dramatic light so that they look illuminated from within. He achieves these effects by applying multiple layers of paint, using palette knives, brushes and some unconventional tools to create complex surfaces with tremendous depth.

 

Painting animals presents a unique set of challenges for the artist. Learn techniques to help you master those elements, and bring your pet or wildlife piece to life! In this workshop you'll work closely with Bruce to translate your photo into a piece of art you can treasure. 

 

Bruce, a well-known, long-time Phoenix artist who has been juried into the annual Celebration of Fine Arts in Scottsdale for years, received his BFA from the prestigious Art Center College of Design in Pasadena. He studied with the world-renowned artist Pat Nagel and Lorser Feitelson, the father of Post-Surrealism. He taught at the Otis Parsons Institute of Art in LA and continues to teach privately. In 2013 he was a nominee for the Governor Arts Award for the state of Arizona. Check out Bruce’s art and bio at: https://brucemarion.com/

AUGUST

Expressive, Luminous Paintings with Impressionistic Brushwork 

with Betty Carr, AISM, APAP, KA

August 29-31, 9 am – 4 pm

Mountain Artists Guild, 228 N Alarcon St., Prescott, AZ 86301

For beginners with some experience to advanced levels

 

Capturing the beauty of light through studying temperatures of light and shadow, visual movement and value/color relationships will be demonstrated in this workshop. As a Master in the American Impressionist Society (AISM), Carr will be emphasizing the "how-tos" in achieving dynamic, impressionistic paintings using painterly brushwork in watercolor and oil. Massing, organizing and composing darks and lights, importance of value sketches, and atmospheric and linear perspective will be covered.

 

Each morning starts with a demonstration and discussion on simple proven techniques for successful, beautiful paintings. We will "warm up" by painting a variety of brush techniques which will apply later to our future paintings. Painting rocks, foliage, water clouds, etc. in striking light will be introduced. Individual and group critiques will take place throughout the workshop.

 

Photos will be a source of inspiration for our work. We will learn how to combine photos to create that one of a kind painting incorporating light and shadow. Bring your favorite landscape and floral still life photos with great lighting for designing your compositions.

 

Through individual instruction, observing daily demonstrations/critiques and producing numerous studies and paintings, students will develop a personal style in their artistic directions as well as gaining inspiration and enthusiasm for future paintings.
