KACC is featuring three high quality workshops this summer and fall covering a wide range of art techniques that will appeal to beginning and advanced artists alike.
On August 9th-11th from 9:00am to 4:00pm Rita Kirkman’s classic pastel workshop focuses on techniques for painting rapidly in small scale to improve your skills and expand your knowledge. Participants will learn to capture light with an under-painting of warm-toned pastel primers, and to grow their grasp of value, temperature, color, and composition in a relaxed and fun atmosphere! The workshop cost is $300 per student and is suitable for everyone from beginning to advanced artists.
On October 2nd-3rd from 9:00am to 4:00pm Lee Ricks will lead a Plein Air workshop on location at Neunhoffer Ranch in Kerrville, Texas. This workshop will precede the Kerrville Outdoor Painters’ Event (KOPE) 2017. Students will meet at the Kerr Arts and Cultural Center on day one at 8:30am. From there, students will caravan to the Neunhoffer Ranch. The workshop will begin with a demonstration by Lee, then each student will be given individualized instruction each day as they work on their paintings. The workshop cost is $220 per student and is suitable for all skill levels.
On November 3rd & 4th from 9:00am to 4:00pm Julie Davis will conduct a workshop designed to strengthen your landscape painting skills. Davis will share the practices and techniques she uses to successfully translate the complexity of the landscape into a strong painting. Participants will learn tools for efficiently gathering information outside, reviewing composition and design, and reinforcing values, as well as the importance of simplifying. Demos and instruction will be followed by painting en plein air (weather permitting), with individual attention at the easel. Workshop cost is $275 per student and is designed to accommodate all levels of skill.
Full details on each of these workshops, including an extensive artist’s bio and registration information is available on the KACC website.
