    Sunset Resort

    Dian_Johnson_4photos

    Spring on Washington Island – what could be better! In every direction there is a scene waiting to be painted; everything from scenery and flowers to buildings, still life and people. We have five full days to learn some new techniques, work out some painting problems, get the creative juices flowing, have lots of fun, and totally immerse ourselves in painting. You are welcome to bring your own photo reference and adapt the lessons to fit your needs and personal photos. There will be plenty of time to paint on your own or do “paint along” sessions. The use of light, translating value into color, design, and “fixing it” techniques will be covered.

    Workshop Fee: $275 Member / $295 Non-Member • Students limited to 15 • Classes take place at Sunset Resort.

    Ed Fenendael Workshop •  June 16-18, 2014

    Ed_Fenendael_lg

    This is a chance to uncover colors hidden inside you. From lemonade skies to purple cows, we will explore expressive approaches to pigments. We will work with ink and watercolor one of the three days and help bridge the gap between realistic representation and what you really want to say in your paintings. Each day will begin with a short lecture, a demonstration and then, you will have time to paint on your own with one on one instruction. Plan to leave with a renewed understanding of the joy of watercolor.

    Workshop Fee: $180 Member / $200 Non-Member • Students limited to 12 • Classes take place at the Washington Island School.

    Barbara Mathews Workshop • June 23-27, 2014

    Barbara-Mathews-lg

    Washington Island, what a great location to celebrate color and texture! Together we will search and invent new ways to see the world around us. Learn to create interesting and exciting abstract patterns of light and darks  that provide descriptive information as well as creating a mood. Learn to find the most interesting and unusual placement of shapes. With the structure of shapes worked out and the patterns of lights and darks, you can focus on color.  Each day we will explore new subjects from the beautiful landscapes of the Island.  There will be daily demonstrations, plus plenty of painting time with individual help by an experienced  instructor.

    Workshop Fee: $325 Member / $345 Non-Member • Students limited to 15 • Classes take place at the Washington Island School.
