VAST Workshop with Mickey Archer SWS, TXN September 25-27, 2017 MTW

“Cowboys and Indians” During the three day workshop, I hope to expose the class to a variety of alternate techniques that you may not be used to. First day, we will be painting on a colored watercolor paper using watercolor and gouache. The second day, we will be doing a portrait using an underpainting to illuminate your painting, and the third day we will tackle a more complicated portrait. I’ve found some very simple color combinations to get great skin tones which we will employ. Western subject matter has been a primary focus of my painting since I retired from architecture in 2008 and I hope to give the class some ideas for finding similar subjects to paint. A large number of Indian POW WOW’s are held at this time of year and are great venues for lots of colorful dancers. I will be furnishing photo copies of the subject matter we will be painting, however, if you wish to paint something different, you certainly may do so. See his work at http://mickeyarcher.faso.com/

Cost: VAST Members: $195; Non-Members $230

Register for Fall Classes & Workshops at the Creative Arts Center of Dallas

Register for Fall Classes & Workshops – 
Fall classes are available for registration and begin the week of September 5th.
New additions to our class and workshop offerings include Exploring Colored Pencils, Collagraphs, Imagination Mosaic Totem, Photoshop Elements, Personal Monograms and many others…
***Please note that we have a new pricing structure starting this fall. Classes will be based on a $12 flat instructional hour so, for example, a seven-week on-going class which has 21 instructional hours will now be $252 for members and an additional $30 per class for non-members. This is being done to have a more equitable pricing structure for all six sessions and should be easier for students to calculate. Workshops will be unaffected.

About the CAC:

Creative Arts Center of Dallas: We have the largest community-based arts education program in North Texas and would love to welcome you inside our doors for a class, an exhibit or to share the stories of our wonderful outreach programs.

This past year, we’ve touched more than 10,000 lives in our community. Students and friends often write us with valuable feedback: “You have a way of merging the technical with the aesthetic, which is conducive to grasping the hows and whys.” Or “I found my bliss again…you have awakened a sleeping giant within me!” One student even told us that CAC “is cheaper and more fun than therapy.”

We help people build their creative confidence, develop discipline and foster collaboration. We adhere to a simple belief that a group of people creating art can build community. Sign up for one of our 500 classes or workshops offered each year and find out for yourself!

“404 Ranch”

The ranch house was just recently remodeled inside and out and a 30’x30′ attached studio added which is where the workshop will be conducted.This is a working ranch but, as you can see from the pictures below, this is not your run-of-the-mill ranch house.

“The Judi Betts Seminar is more than educational, its entertaining! Judi’s techniques can be applied with a seasoned painter that draws well or a novice just starting out!
As an artist I have used her techniques and incorporated them into mine and loved the results. Judi is a great teacher and willing to work one on one!
While taking this amazing course the accommodations are amazing as well !!! I’ve seen the new studio. It is a large, air conditioned well-lit room and makes painting perfect! Judi’s quips and stories makes learning conditions perfect.
Three delicious meals are enjoyed daily and end of the day sunsets are superb. I have taken twice and I can say each time I learned and enjoyed the ranch experience. Don’t miss it….I’m not!!! ”
