  • July 28-29 (2-day workshop)
  • Location – Elm Street Studio – Keller – 139 S. Elm St.
  • $250.00 – Supplies required, see LIST
  • This workshop will include step by step demonstrations, one on one individual easel time, and fun exercises to learn how to loosen up and create bold, colorful paintings. Chris uses the “Alla Prima” method of painting (working wet into wet) and will teach you how to layer with transparent and opaque oils, and how to keep your paints from getting muddy. She will show you how to take an ordinary photograph, and use artistic license to paint from the heart by infusing clean, bold color, loose brush strokes, and beautiful lighting. There will be an emphasis on color mixing, composition, brushwork, and more. Learn to see “Impressionistically,” and explore your ability to “suggest” rather than “render” the subject. Come prepared to have a relaxing, fun-filled learning experience. This class is for all levels of painting from beginners to advanced! It is designed to help you take your painting to the next level.

Upcoming Oil Painting Workshops with Chris Brandley

Grand_Finale_in_Venice_Chris_Brandley_web

Coming in July and September (Keller and Grapevine, Texas):

Chris’s workshops include step by step demonstrations, one on one individual easel time, and fun exercises to learn how to loosen up and create bold, colorful paintings. She holds nothing back, and talks through the process and colors during the demo! Chris uses the “Alla Prima” method of painting (working wet into wet) and will teach you how to layer with transparent and opaque oils, and how to keep your paints from getting muddy. She will show you how to take an ordinary photograph, and use artistic license to paint from the heart by infusing clean, bold color, loose brush strokes, and beautiful lighting. There will be an emphasis on color mixing, composition, brushwork, and more. Learn to see “Impressionistically,” and explore your ability to “suggest” rather than “render” the subject. Come prepared to have a relaxing, fun-filled learning experience. This class is for all levels of painting from beginners to advanced!

Unseenamerica is an 8-week curriculum-based program, taught by a professional photographer, teaches digital photography at nearby Bayles Elementary, which is CAC’s namesake school.  Bayles began as a one-room school house in 1981 near what is now Buckner International.  CAC was built during the WPA in 1935 and Bayles operated here until the mid-50s. The current DISD Bayles Elementary School opened in 1956 about a mile from CAC where it is currently. Significantly, Bayles is the oldest school operating under the same name in Dallas County.
Modeled on a program that originated in New York under Bread and
 Roses, the cultural arm of SEIU Local 1199, the largest labor union in the country, unseenamericawas originally designed to serve low-wage workers, day labors, homeless citizens and others often ignored in our society. When CAC brought the program to Dallas in 2008 we were the first to adapt the program for children.
 
Unseenamerica is far from a fun enrichment program for disadvantaged kids. It is designed to instill a stronger sense of self and community through artistic practice. Unseenamerica does not simply teach photography skills, but also creates community, enables the practice of democracy and promotes social justice.

Spots Still Open for Ken Hosmer Watercolor Workshop in Ingram

hcaflogonew

The Hill Country Arts Foundation is proud to once again offer a summer watercolor workshop with renowned artist, Ken Hosmer. The workshop will take place Monday through Thursday, June 19 – 22.
Ken Hosmer is known for his unique use of color, and as a skilled teacher, highly respected for a calm, supportive demeanor. He has taught art workshops for over 30 years, and has been a guest workshop instructor for more than 100 art organizations across the United States and in exotic locations such as Italy, Greece and Mexico.
hosmerptg
In this watercolor workshop, students will watch as Ken reveals ‘color secrets’ and design ideas each day. He offers guidelines which encourage you to creatively interpret painting subjects in your own style. Painting demonstrations emphasize free, spontaneous painting and cover a variety of subjects, including landscape, flowers, human figures, or animals.
Ken clearly explains his artistic method as he paints, organizes ideas into simple terms, and in a positive and gentle manner, skillfully pinpoints and verbalizes exactly what your painting needs for improvement. This makes the class ideal for beginning and advanced students. A typical day might include demonstration and lecture in the morning with class work time and individual help in the afternoon. The workshop ends with an uplifting and informative critique session.

Please call the HCAF Visual Arts Center for details or to register for this workshop at (830) 367-5120.
