    Join artist/printmaker extraordinaire, Maria Lilly, for this fun adventure into the world of printmaking! One of the oldest and simplest methods of printmaking is the relief print. It is a brilliant way of making multiples of your artwork. This medium can be very graphic and can be used to make posters, cards, and book illustrations.  Relief print has also been the medium of many a fine artist.  Linocut is very similar to woodcut, but has no grain. This makes for easier cutting and designing. This class will focus on black and white linocut, with an added color. We will concentrate on creating light and shadow with different types of marks and lines to create works of graphic fine art. We will cut into a plate with an exacto and add color in different areas. Lettering may also be added. There will be time to make two or three blocks. We will also discuss chiaroscuro for those interested. This will require using two plates, with near exact drawings on each plate. Tracing paper, painters tape and two plates will be needed for this.

    Perhaps you’ve learned the basics of painting and you are looking for new inspiration or maybe you have a newly discovered love of painting and you want to work toward making real progress with solid instruction. We invite you to join J. Waid Griffin for three amazing days of painting in the spectacular landscape surrounding Our Lady of Guadalupe Monastery in Pecos, New Mexico. Waid will apply his vast knowledge of landscape painting and guide you through every step toward creating great paintings plein air. Students will receive personal instruction each day on the beautiful grounds of the Monastery with access to studio space for critique and additional painting time in the evening. The lessons will cover many aspects of the process of on location painting such as: how to SEE, how to analyze and depict the light source(s) and how to select your subject. The tuition includes all costs; your room and meals, so all you have to do is eat, sleep, and paint!

    This workshop will be, above all else, fun! Join Joan and dive into the wonderful world of abstract art, learning how to suggest rather than delineate.

Joan will show students how to start by using shapes, line, and color, all while incorporating the neutrals for which she is so famous. Joan will address how to be selective with all the options on the table and in the studio. You will explore new mediums and try new combinations, pairing down to the essential choices. Students should bring fresh ideas to splash onto the canvas! Everyone will thrive in the informative and relaxed atmosphere, It is Joan’s belief that people are open to learning and creativity when they are having fun.  Beginning students will find encouragement and confidence, while more advanced students will benefit from her insightful solutions to their creative challenges.

    Portrait painting from life is one of the most intimate disciplines in the visual arts; although it is also sometimes one of the most intimidating. Have you ever wondered what the secret is to capturing the likeness of your subject? Or maybe there are certain features of a portrait that you want to more proficiently create? In this four-day intensive course Colt will discuss the process of creating a portrait painting from observation while delving into how it is that the specific articulation of each feature culminates in a painting that depicts the likeness of the subject at hand. This course is an opportunity to learn about light, form, and the ins-and-outs of what leads to a successfully constructed portrait. Each student will spend the entire course going through the process of creating a single finished oil painting. Each morning Colt will demonstrate, break for lunch, then students will get each afternoon to work on their own piece, supplemented by one-on-one instruction.

    “Color is a person’s signature, a personal form of expression and another sense an artist can use to communicate! I intermingle abstract shapes and color to energize my subjects, which include landscapes, still life's, and figures.”     

    - L. Escobedo


    Join us for this rare opportunity to work with Oil Painters of America Master Signature Painter, Louis Escobedo.

Students should provide their own still life items to work from as well as photographs and/or use of iPads. COVID vaccination is required.
