Join Sarah Sedwick in her hometown of Eugene, Oregon, for this unique four-day workshop, in conjunction with her solo show at Maude Kerns Art Center - painting right in the gallery! The opening reception will be held on the workshop’s ﬁnal day, making this a great destination for those who’ve wanted to study with Sarah, and visit Eugene at our most beautiful time of the year.
Paint more loosely, and take the mystery out of color mixing! Using only three colors and white, we will explore the alla prima painting technique, working from fun, colorful still lives, as well as a live model.
We begin with the fundamentals of value and composition design, mixing a full palette of colors from only three tubes of paint! Simplify your palette, work wet-on-wet for a rich, satisfying effect, and get a new perspective on the still life - plus great tips for bringing inspiration to your own studio practice.
Quick exercises, longer duration paintings, demos, and critiques will ﬁll our days. Sarah will demonstrate her process, and work with each student individually.
A complete supply kit (optional) is available to purchase from the instructor, for $75. Oregon Art Supply is offering a 20% discount on all materials for this workshop. Fantastic samples from M. Graham and Gamblin will be provided for all.
Create bas-relief artwork using air-dried paper clay on boards. Learn new methods of self-expression in this fun 2 day workshop with Rogene Mañas, mixed media artist and author of Artful Paper Clay: Adding Dimension to Your Art.
Using Creative Paperclay®, participants will learn to sculpt relief forms onto boards and make free-form pieces on the first day. The second day will be devoted to carving and sanding the air-fried pieces, then finishing them with acrylic paint and medium. The result is a rich, textural, wood-carved effect that will leave people wondering how it was made.
This class is ideal for all levels of skill from beginner to advanced. Paper clay is a flexible and forgiving medium that will stir your creativity. We will be working from bird images because they make a great and simple form to work from for learning the techniques. Choices of images will be provided by the instructor.
12 hours of instruction includes paper clay sculpting and finishing, plus basic acrylic painting techniques. Clay for each participant will be donated by the Creative Paperclay® company and the paint will be provided by M.Graham & Co. A complete materials list will be available when registering for the class.
All proceeds for this special fundraiser will go toward enhancing the entrance to the gallery at Maude Kerns Art Center.
