KATH MACAULAYPOCKET SKETCHING for FUN AND TRAVEL with KATH MACAULAY

Perfect for hiking, biking, sitting in a café or standing in line — take it anywhere, whip it out in a minute, preserve a memory in 25 minutes or less and put away with no clean-up.

When:  June 15 – 17, 2018     9:30-4pm

Where:  Trail’s End Art Association and Gallery

              656 A Street

              Gearhart, OR

Cost:     $342 with supplies (members)

  $417 with supplies (non-members)

Lunch:   Bring your lunch the first two days

Reservation or info:  Linda Gebhart, 503-351-0145 or   www.pocketsketching.com

Supplies:  Included at the workshop for paint set, paper, water soluble pen, water container, manual.

Instructor brings several extra things (such as the custom fanny pack), that are a pleasure but not essential!

 

Day one:  basic technique and landscape, finishing within 25 minutes. Perspective of contrast, color and focal point.  Techniques from John Singer Sargent’s watercolors.
Day two:  still life and people and color.
Day three:  on location, plein air, using the technique fearlessly anywhere.

Interactive critiques and demonstrations are both given constantly in a very positive, personal atmosphere. Instruction is geared to individual needs of each person so each achieves their goal.

Extra and different material will be available for advanced students who have taken this workshop before.

This workshop is ideal for timid beginners who want to fearlessly paint in public, and perfect for experienced artists who want mobility, minimal equipment and no clean-up.  Learn enough to play for a lifetime!
