Strand, Sally

This is a three-day workshop, Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

Learn to paint figures in an everyday environment using color and light to organize space and tell a story.

In recent years, I have been borrowing and building on classical art principles, painting contemporary views of my personal world. To address subject matter and content, I use formal elements that will be presented in this workshop. I focus on exploring light effects and manipulating value key ranges for mood. Benchmarks for me are clear shapes and color harmonies. Although pastel techniques will be an integral part of our process, they will not be our primary focus. We will use them to investigate personal expression.
Students will learn to capture light with color on boldly designed figure compositions, learn to distinguish between compositions that work and those that are less effective, and learn to see the big picture by painting shape relationships instead of details.

DFAC will accept a $100 non-refundable deposit for this workshop. The balance will be due on December 1, 2022. Withdrawals will not receive any refund after December 25, 2022. Pastel Society of Tampa Bay members will have priority registration from August 1, 2022 to September 30, 2022. Registration will open to the general public on October 1, 2022.
