TUCSON ART ACADEMY Workshop

Here we are again… and…welcome to another blog posting on my teaching trail!

Our latest travels brought us to Tucson Arizona for the Four-Day On-Location workshop that was hosted (for the fifth annual year) by the TUCSON ART ACADEMY. Christine and Gabor Svagrik the owners/artists, opened their professional studio/school for my morning instructions and demonstrations.

The first morning session, I gave information and precise examples of my color value system and how this principals can greatly benefit both pastel painters as well as oil painters and their work.

The second morning’s demonstration was a pastel painting on sanded paper followed by a pastel with a watercolor under-painting.

Then… the third day was an exciting and eye-opening oil demonstration.

Jeanine getting a closer look at the oil painting demonstration.

Each afternoon for the first three days…we drove to the most exciting locations for out-door painting for the participating artist…with assistance by me at their easels. The fourth and final day of the workshop…I painted in the morning on location and invite the participants to paint along with me. Such a wonderful experience for all of us! (There are a few additional blogs presented by the artists.)

My painting the fourth morning on location at the beautiful Aqua Calienta oasis within the desert surrounding Tucson.

Closing day… all the artists, a number of their spouses, Christine and Gabor, myself and Jeanine had a fair-well dinner at a fine.. delicious local restaurant. The conversation and enthusiasm was truly magnificent!

We will be traveling to Albuquerque the week end of March 1st for a truly inspiring workshop for THE NEW MEXICO ART LEAGUE.

An invitation to come follow along with all the news!
