Doug Walton

June 5th, 6th, and 7th, 2015  Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.

Doug Walton’s Water Media workshop this coming June will be an experience that should not be missed. Many of our members, especially those from the Arlington area, are famil- iar with his philosophical and unique techniques. It is said that he teaches creativity. Out of curiosity, I took one of his workshops to see what it was all about. His abstracts that of- ten include a hint of realism are amazing to behold. In this group of 10 students, I was the only one who had been a student of his for less than 10 years. Some have been faithfully following him for over 30 years participating in his evolution of his artistic expression. There are those who follow him in his world travels (Europe, South America, Canada, Southeast Asia, the Orient, etc.) as he teaches his many workshops. He will drive out from his Ruston, LA home to spend 3 days with us, bringing a startling array of latex house paints and an ever evolving creative bent to his work. Though he has seen a few birthdays and might be expected to be settling in on what has been his array of successes, he is still out to teach what painting should be in the 21st century and encourages leaving the 20th century where it belongs. If you cannot make all three days of the workshop, you may pay (on availability) a per day fee. Price for members is $225.00 and for non-members $275.00 (one day $80/$110). Register
