Spots Still Open for Ken Hosmer Watercolor Workshop in Ingram


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.
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.

Large Oil Landscape Painting with Roger Parsons (and Plein Air too)


(Mon. – Fri.) Jan. 9 – 13, 10 am to 4 pm

Tuition: $300 for HCAF Members & $340 for Non-Members

Participants will take their small plein air landscape study and turn it into a large format painting. We will focus on drawing, composition, value, edges, and color, implementing rules of perspective and principles of design to make bigger and better representational art. Participants will draw the first couple of days, then transition to painting the latter half of the week. This is a studio class in oils for intermediate painters with some knowledge and experience.

Please bring at least one plein air panting (dry), 2 – 3 reference photos of the scene, and a larger canvas panel for the studio painting.

Bonus: Everyday we’ll have a “working lunch,” so bring a sack lunch. We will discuss different art issues; from specific topics selected by the instructor, to open discussion of topics raised by participants.

Call 830-367-5120 to register.

HCAF Fall Workshops in Ingram


We are pleased to announce our Fall Workshop Schedule! Just an FYI, our website is undergoing an update, so please keep checking back on www.hcaf.com for more information on these workshops and others.

HCAF Visual Arts Center
A 1,700 square foot gallery, four art studios, a ceramic lab and press studio comprise the Duncan-McAshan Visual Arts Center. The gallery exhibition schedule includes a full range of art in virtually all media. Exhibitions feature local as well as nationally and internationally recognized artists. Works of art are available for purchase at most of the shows, and admission to the gallery is always free.

The Hill Country Arts Foundation has been hosting art workshops for over half a century, and offers programs and support for artists of all ages. The roster of artists who have taught here reads like a who’s who of the art community locally, regionally and nationally. Although all of our workshops emphasize hands-on learning, many instructors supplement this using current technology, demonstrations and lectures. Full tuition is due 30 days prior to each workshop, and lab and/or material fees are payable to the instructor on or before the first day of class. Specific information on exhibits and workshops may be viewed on our website.
