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.
This class will provide an opportunity to bolster your understanding of drawing fundamentals and practices, with an emphasis on value study and composition. You will be in a supportive atmosphere that will encourage you to ask questions and resolve perceived issues in your work, as well as share your knowledge and experience with others.
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.
