Village Arts Of Putney


Thursday-Sunday, May 17-20, 2018       9:00a.m. —4:00p.m.       Tuition: $550

 

Stephanie Birdsall is a member of the Putney Painters, founded by Richard Schmid and Nancy Guzik. Her paintings in oil and pastel are based on Schmid’s color charts, featured in “Alla Prima.” 

 

An excellent teacher in identifying and assisting students through their individual obstacles, Stephanie is the perfect teacher for those who really want to move to the next stage in their development as an artist.  Being able to mix and use color and materials accurately, and develop more confidence is essential.  Stephanie is a master at providing this type of assistance in oils or pastels.  This intensive workshop will provide participants with knowledge, skills and time to put them into practice. This is soul food for the serious and aspiring artist. 

 

Working with flowers, leaves and fruit, this workshop will either introduce the student to color mixing or help the advanced students hone their color mixing skills. Students will concentrate on beautiful, intentional brushstrokes, paint quality along with edges and values. The subject matter will be from life.

 

Each day will start with a 25-stroke painting to warm up and practice intentional brush strokes and color. Stephanie will assist in still life set ups and instruct students on how to look for the rhythm and fall of light on the subject.

 

It’s an intense and fun-filled opportunity to truly gain a deeper understanding of what you are painting and how you want to paint!
