Beginner to advanced
Develop your artistry and self-expression as you move from concept to completion. Your instructor, Steve DeLaitsch, will guide each attendee through specific techniques and ideas encouraging each to create their own style. He teaches the class in a manner that allows for the personal expression and development of each student. All forms of art can be covered from realism to abstraction and all skill levels are taught. The fundamentals remain the same from beginners to experienced artists. Steve will demonstrate his painting theory, drawing, and techniques covering topics such as preliminary sketching, drawing, and watercolor painting.
MATERIALS – watercolor paints, paper and brushes, pencils, sketch paper and artistic references (photos or drawings). Keep it simple. A list of materials will be available at the ArtWorks Center if needed. Move from concept to completion by discovering unique qualities in the materials while taking your work in fascinating new directions. Demonstrations will be customized to fit the class. These may include figures, approaches to abstraction, still life, composition, landscapes, or specifically targeted demonstrations to meet your requests. This 1 day Fall Painting Retreat is designed for a longer, more intense class to focus on creativity, self-expression and artistic skills.
SUBJECT MATTER can include any subject you desire or any selection of drawings, photos or still life objects. I insist that you paint exactly what you are interested in.
