Masters Workshop on the Foundations of Painting
Add to your calendar
Date: August 13, 9:00 am
Location: The Art Studio
Details:

Instructor Peggy Morgan Stenmark has painted for over 20 years, specializing in watercolors and acrylics. She is a signature member of the American Watercolor Society, the National Watercolor Society, the Rocky Mountain Watermedia Society, Western Federation of Watercolor Societies and the Colorado Watercolor Society.
   
Peggy’s express goal with this workshop is to guide individual watercolor, acrylic, and oil painters to reach the next level in their painting. Using your own paintings that are in progress, and focusing on the basics of Value, Color, and Composition, participants trouble shoot their own work – looking for places to improve and strengthen the work, discovering why something is not working, or picking up a new tip or trick.
   
Each day will focus on one principle, with exercises in the morning, and then, in the afternoon, an opportunity to apply that principle to your own paintings.  The workshop is set up for lots of one-on-one time for each participant with Peggy. 
  
The group will also visit Oh Be Joyful Gallery to view paintings that are particularly strong in value, color, or composition, focusing on and noting what makes the painting strong, regardless of style.  Those principles will then be brought back to the classroom, and participants will again have a chance to apply them to their current work. 
   
At the end of each day, there will be guided critiques of work, for those who are interested. 
   
Please bring a few of your paintings that are in progress, or that you feel fell short of what you were intending.  In addition, please see the attached supply list for information on what to bring, and the attached Workshop Daily Plan for a day-by-day outline of the workshop.
