The workshop will be studio and/or plein air (outdoors from life) according to those students that sign up for each day. Locations in the Melbourne/Indialantic area yet to be determined. This workshop is geared for any medium, and demonstrations will be in pastel and in oil.
This workshop is appropriate for beginning or advanced students. All students still receive individual attention geared to their level. If you are painting in studio, bring photographs (no copyrighted material, please).. You may choose which of the days you can attend, according to your needs, and plan studio or plein air. The property at Riverside Drive is beautiful and has many great painting spots.
Pastel is Marsha Savage's main instruction medium, and beginners will be very comfortable taking this workshop to learn pastel techniques. Students taking the workshop using oil or acrylic will receive the benefit of Marsha's experience in oil and acrylic. And, most theories are the same no matter the medium you use. Call if you have questions. A supply list will be given upon payment of deposit.
Emphasis is on composition and value, with temperature and color a strong second! There will be added emphasis on quickly creating a thumbnail sketch to work from, blocking in the darks and lights, and finding the colors and developing the painting. This class is not just to paint a pretty painting from start to finish; the principles of starting and working through the painting are foremost.
The class fills up in a hurry, so if you are interested, please contact Marsha Savage or Jeanne Andre ASAP! Returning students are given priority, but there is usually space available for several new students each session. This is a fun class, especially inspirational with all the artwork being created around you by the other students! Class size is small!
