Location: Dunedin Fine Art Center

Member Tuition: $345.00

Elio Camacho, a San Francisco painter, is an accomplished colorist who teaches in oil and acrylic. He uses engaging demos in his still life workshops and stresses design and color theory in conveying emotion and effective composition. His technique incorporates an ala prima approach to mixing color on the canvas as well as the palette. Revealing how warm and cool colors, value and transparency control composition, depth and focal points of the painting, Elio can help you bring new life to your work.

Students will work from still life setups in the studio that provide basic challenges of composition, form, texture, highlighting and shadowing. Each student is given personal attention with care not to discourage their style or vision, but to enhance them. This workshop is meant to help the student to raise the bar on their own work by finding new freedom in painting. Let your brush become your voice!

Demo scheduled for Thursday, March 1st 1-4pm. Free for DFAC members/$5 for non-members. Reservations required. Please call 727-298-3322.

W-PT200 - Acrylic Painting: Dots, Dashes and Masses

Instructor: Kouffman, Jakki

Day of Week:

Skill Levels: Level 3,Level 4

Location:

Member Tuition: $225.00

Non-Member: $250.00

Modernism is often as much about process as content. How do your marks look? Can they stand for ideas and feelings all by themselves? This workshop will explore how to present visual information using the greatest variety of quirky dots, characterful dashes and idiosyncratic masses to represent the outside world. Using digital or printed photographs as source material, we will explore direct painting unconstrained by the requirements of realism. Our goal is to work more texturally. Our means: unconventional tools, such as paint shapers, squeegees, palette knives and found implements to assist each painter in generating her or his own visual language. Abstract and representational artists are welcome to participate.

Instructor: Lobenberg, David

Day of Week:

Skill Levels: Level 2,Level 3,Level 4,Level 5

Location:

Member Tuition: $375.00

Non-Member: $400.00

Like California’s San Andreas fault line, David Lobenberg likes to shake things up. He applies watercolor paint to paper with splatters, swabs, slaps, splats, and slashes. It is added, subtracted, and added again. He floods, blossoms, and textures. His style is about gesture, no-holds-barred expressive color, odd shapes in odd places, soft transparency and hard opacity. In his three-day workshop, you too will learn how to shake It up starting with David’s method of posing and taking photographs of your subjects to tracing out simple outline contour drawings of their head and features from the photographs. The drawings are then easily traced onto sheets of watercolor paper from quarter to full sheet size.. After that, it’s time to California-Vibe them!

David Lobenberg’s watercolor paintings can be found in private, public, and corporate collections across the country. He has had his work published nationally and internationally in American Artist Magazine, Southwest Art Magazine, American Art Collector Magazine, Plein Air Magazine, the French art magazine, Pratique Des Art, Plein Air Magazine, The Palette Magazine, and the European magazine, The World of Watercolour.
