"Students are often nervous about what they don't know. However, not knowing is where the real learning occurs. Artists educate their powers to see beyond what is normal. There is much more to developing as an artist than the craft. The most important aspect is the developed ability to see as an artist. Becoming an artist opens up a very special relationship to the world, one of structure, symmetry, color harmony, edges, shapes and the sensuality of paint and line. Art, the magic, the mystery come amidst a new way of seeing and the thrill of discovery within the relationship with your subject." Rick Hodgins
"One of the great secrets of painting is what a joyful process it can be. It was my salvation; a way to make sense of a chaotic universe and find a deep sense of purpose… Each brush stroke is a unique living record of an artists’ personality – his view of life and beauty on the day the brush touched the canvas. It is unique as a fingerprint." Robert Johnson
Each day will include short lectures and demonstrations. Then it will be your time to explore. At this time, the planned schedule is three days of still life and one day of portrait painting.
This will be a fun and inspiring workshop.
This workshop promises to be full and filled with adventure in one of Texas' true original villages. At the end of each day we will "wine-dup" and review the day.
