The Fifth Avenue Art Gallery will also be sponsoring a 2 day oil painting workshop, by Karen, May 12 and 13, 10 to 4:00 pm, at Ralph's Art Supply on 1420 Highland Avenue 255-3331, in the arts district of Eau Gallie. A supply list will be available at the gallery and at the art store. A $100 deposit will be required to reserve your spot. The workshop will be limited to 12 artists. Sign up is at the Fifth Avenue Art Gallery.
This workshop will concentrate on color, values, brushwork and design. Karen will go over color charts so students learn the ins and outs of color mixing exactly what color they want the first time, thus saving time and money. The purpose is to avoid dirty colors or "mud". Participants in the class should bring 6-10 photos of scenes that excite them and they will choose 2-3 to paint. Karen will be teaching the "block in and refine" method of painting. She will demonstrate and work with painters on an individual basis. Students should finish 1-2 small paintings. The goal of the workshop is to "get the light turned on" in your paintings.
