Day 2 Michael Siegel Portrait Painting workshop

We had a full house today--it's great that so many artists were able to attend today and learn from master artist Michael Siegel.  He is an extraordinary teacher and each student gains a tremendous amount from studying with him.
We had a great model, great art energy, great learning today.  A very successful day in the studio.  After the workshop today, we enjoyed Chinese food for dinner from Dim Sum House here in the studio. (I am super grateful for the dishwasher in the studio kitchen!)  It's always so much fun to hang out and eat and talk art with other artists and be able to unwind after a long day of painting.

An Amazing Workshop with Michael Siegel

Michael explains his palette and color choices.
In his step by step approach, he slowly and masterfully constructs the form of the portrait.
Everyone eagerly gets to work, trying to remember and practice the lessons of this modern master.  What a privilege to study under the tutelage of an artist of his caliber. And I love that it's happening right here in Oak Park at my studio!!!!

Kids Camp: Fine Art. Fiber Art. Culinary Art.

(click here to download flier)

FINE ART - maximum 8 students
o This camp is designed for the student who
loves to draw, but needs direction or
encouragement. Learning to draw what is seen
(both real and imaginary) is a vital step for all other
art forms. Art is all about feeling the freedom to take
risks, to explore the unknown, to trust your own judgment. Because when you are
free to dream, you find the power to create.

FIBER ART - maximum 6 students
o Do you dream of making something with your own hands that you can wear?
Make a fashion statement by learning to make your own wearable art. So simple
to do. Camp projects include: felted, crochet and nuno flowers to wear, give, or
swap with friends and family.

CULINARY ART - maximum 4 students
o Curiosity created the cook! Calling kids for a week of mad-delicious food
experiments and creations! Kids will experience a world of hands-on culinary art
as they learn how to properly prepare, produce and present their international
edible delights.
