Marc Hanson-Exploring Your Painting Skills in Open Air 1 and 2 (two workshops with a day in between, take them both or

Monday, July 8, 2019, 9:00 AM

Marc has agreed to do two three day workshops with a day in between to rest.  We have included a cost for both first, and then listed them separately in the ticket area.  Session One - July 8-10, Session Two - July 12-14.  For those who take both sets of workshops, the second one will be a continuation of the first.  There will be a 10% discount for taking both. "This workshop is two sets of three days of painting outside in the landscape, for painters of all levels, working in oils, pastels or acrylics.   I work in all three of those mediums on location and in the studio, and am happy to see artists in my workshops with either of the three. Since we all come to painting with a lot of information and history of our own, it’s not possible for me to know each individual students’ experience and abilities. I’ve designed my workshops so that it doesn’t matter if you’ve been painting for half of your life, or for half of the last month, each student will benefit from the exercises I’ve designed. They will help to strengthen your current abilities, and expose those skills that need strengthening. I work with each individual student at their own level, spend a lot of time with each student at their easel giving individual instruction. I demo everything that I ask you to do. You’ll leave the workshop having spent either 3 days, or 6 days studying the basic elements of painting... Drawing, Value, Color, Edges and Design... with one other element, possibly the most important one of all... Concept... being explored and discussed at length.  I’ve designed a number of exercises that focus on the importance of Value to Design, Color, and Concept. From there we’ll move into simple Color and Design issues, including how to use all of those, and Edges, to emphasize your Concept, what it is you want to say to the viewer in your painting. You may not go home with paintings that need framing, but you will go home with a portfolio full of valuable exercises that you can refer back to as you move forward in your own painting process. All I ask is that you come with an inquisitive and open mind, and the Art Spirit within you." Any questions please call Kathy at (616) 897-7842, ext. 352.
