Let's Paint a Still Life with White

Saturday January 5
John Singer Sargeant's painting with white.

1:30 pm - 5:00 pm
Bring your art materials and let's begin with a discussion of how master artists handled the color white in their paintings.

Next we will work on a still life set up where the predominant color is white and challenge ourselves to work with the color white and all it's reflective colors.  Rather than struggling alone in our studio, let's get together and look at master artist references and each other for some ideas.

At 5:00 pm, we'll have an optional show and share and discuss the concept of the color white in our artwork.  Complimentary refreshments and beverages provided!

$10 per person.
Here's an example of  how Carol Marine used white in her painting here.



Another example from John Singer Sargeant using white.

Urban Sketch Crawl

Urban Sketch Crawl
Sunday October 21
2 pm - 4:30 pm

Meet at Old Soul on 35th Street and Broadway

Bring sketching materials and $ for a cup of the best coffee in town

It's a great way to spend a few hours, drawing with a number of other people who also enjoy drawing. Art generally a solitary activity, and it's a great change of pace to actually make art with other people who are making art.
