Two Day Workshop on Acrylic Landscapes with Brian Atyeo
Monday, June 11th and Tuesday, June 12th, 2018 9:00 AM – 4:00 PM

This is a two-day workshop for artists working in acrylic media. (No oil based paints).

One of the problems landscape artists have – is effectively combining large powerful shapes with more passive/supportive shapes. The composition of a painting can be made more effective by combining these strong shape interactions, along with suitable tonal values. We will also study colour temperature in composition, and look at the strong use of colour, both modified and unmodified.

Brian will demonstrate each morning, along with the lesson, and you will have time in the afternoon to respond with your own painting and application of the techniques demonstrated.

The workshop is $175.00 per participant with a registration and payment deadline of January 3rd 2018.
Participants will be required to bring their own materials. There will be a 1 hour lunch break – so bring a brown bag.
Space will be restricted to 14 participants and spaces will be assigned on a first come first serve basis.

Two Day Workshop on Abstracts in Acrylic with Brian Atyeo
Wednesday, June 13th and Thursday, June 14th, 2018 9:00 AM – 4:00 PM

This is a two-day workshop for artists working in acrylic media. (No oil based paints).

When we take advantage of conditions like distortion, exaggeration and multiple perspective, we open ourselves to that unique condition of self that allows abstraction to dominate our response to subject.

 Brian will demonstrate a landscape the first day, and a jazz figure duet (Saxophones) the second day. You will have time each afternoon to respond with your own painting and application of the techniques demonstrated.

Abstraction is more a way of thinking/response, than a way of painting or technique.

The two-day workshop is $175.00 per participant with a registration and payment deadline of January 3rd 2018. 
Participants will be required to bring their own materials. There will be a 1 hour lunch break – so bring a brown bag.
Space will be restricted to 14 participants and spaces will be assigned on a first come first serve basis.
