Floral/Still Life Oil Painting: Sound Principals To Build Upon
Douglas David
Registration deadline is January 3, 2014
Workshop meets Friday - Sunday, January 31 - February 2
10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
#WW87 $350 (Museum members $325)

This popular workshop returns and will cover the basic principles of oil painting with regard to painting florals and still life, and include discussions on composition, massing, building form, light and shadow, and learning how not to overwork your painting. Students will work in their own style/technique so that the finished work is their own. Douglas will review his palette, concepts that his work entails, and show participants mixing strategies to simplify the process. Demonstrations and individual discussions/instruction will help each student begin to reach their artistic goals. Plan to produce several studies and at least one or two larger, more finished paintings, depending on skill level.

Douglas David has a B.F.A. in visual communication from the Herron School of Art at Indiana University. He has studied the palette of the late Frank Vincent DuMond under Frank Mason of New York’s Art Students League for more than 10 years. Douglas also studied with noted east coast painters John P. Osborne and John C. Traynor. He conducts workshops around the country, and served as artist in residence at The Studios of Key West and Glen Arbor Art Association. He is the recipient of numerous regional and national awards and honors. For more detailed information, visit www.douglasdavid.com.

Mastering Representation: Portrait + Landscape + Floral
Jack "Hagop" Keledjian
Registration deadline is January 17, 2014
Workshop meets Friday - Sunday, February 14-16
9:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.
#WW88 $350 (Museum members $325)

The focus of this three-day painting workshop will be working in oil wet-on-wet which will allow students to finish a painting of each subject during the workshop. The instructor’s teaching method focuses on understanding and capturing light which brings harmony and atmosphere into a work of art. Also stressed in this workshop will be the use of edges, temperature of color and the use of thick and thin paints. The concepts and skills learned will allow students to produce beautifully balanced and harmonious paintings.

Hagop was born in Yerevan, Armenia where at the age of twelve he entered the School of Painting for Young Artists. Upon graduation from college, Hagop was accepted into the Aprahamian Art Studio where he learned his technique. His studies involved working exclusively from life, using the conceptual and technical methods of the Spanish and Russian traditions, and also included French Impressionism. Seeking his own artistic vision, Hagop emigrated to the U.S. in 1981 and settled in Watertown, Massachusetts, where he has thrived as an artist and teacher. Among his honors, a painting on permanent display at the Armenian Library and Museum of America in Massachusetts, and earning first prize in the International Artists Magazine Competition for 2007.
