After all the Thanksgiving hustle and bustle is over and before the Christmas rush begins, give yourself a much needed artistic retreat. I’ll be teaching a two-day workshop in a quaint little town right outside of Austin, Texas. Georgetown has it all; great restaurants, numerous antique shops and the best cappuccino I have ever tasted. Oh, but you probably want to know about the workshop.
Title: For the Love of Color – Still Life
- Friday, Dec 9th, 10am – 5pm
- Saturday, Dec 10th 9am – 4pm
- Open to adult participants of all levels.
- Bring your own soft pastels or oils.
- Still-life set-ups provided.
- Limited to 12 participants.
Claude Monet said, “Color is my day-long obsession, joy and torment.” He spent his artistic life trying to understand color under the shifting circumstances of nature. Henry Hensche, a student of Charles Hawthorne, attempted to codify Monet’s sense of color into a teachable methodology which he taught for over fifty years in Provincetown, Mass. at his Cape School of Art in the early-mid 20th century.
The focus of this workshop will be to heighten each student’s color perception through a modified Hensche method. The first morning will include demonstrations by the instructor. In the afternoon, students will paint several small, simple, still-life setups under varied, colored-light situations. The second day students will have the entire day to work on a still-life set-up and practice the skills learned on day one.
