Leslie Cain -Pastel Workshop
September 18, 19, and 20: 10am - 5pm
Supplies: supply list available at the gallery.
Cost is $200 for Allied Arts Members; $225 for non-members.

Working from your own photographs of a favorite place, we will explore ways to get your connection to the land around out of your brain and heart and down your arm onto the paper. Working with dray pastels on paper, we will incorporate many drawing techniques (married with painting concepts) to recreate a favorite spot. All levels and input welcome, though drawing experience is preferred.

Deanne Lemley -Figure Painting Workshop
November 13, 14, and 15: 9:30am - 4pm
Supplies: supply list available at the gallery.
Cost is $315 for Allied Arts Members; $340 for non-members. An additional model fee (not to exceed $50 per person) will be required at the time of the class.

This watercolor workshop will be focusing on the model in costume and nude.  I will be working with the student to develop form, integrate the figure into the background, exploring the use of color and line as a means to convey action, develop passion and sensitivity.  The workshop will begin with “warm-ups” with the model and leading into longer poses.   The students find it exciting, intense and beneficial while working with a live model, making similar application to other areas of painting such as still life and landscape as well.
