3 Days Coastal Workshop

Join Kristen Olson in beautiful Southern California and take a beach break while you learn to paint three different types of coastal landscapes.  We will paint boats and their reflections on Balboa Island, The sea cliffs, sea rocks and turquoise water at Heisler Park in Laguna Beach and beach cottages with umbrellas at Crystal Cove.   
Throughout the workshop I will tailor each location to a different lesson that includes work on the fundamentals of painting such as composition, value, color, edges and how to add that special quality you love about your chosen location by showing you how to add the emotions you feel for your subject to your painting.

 Each morning I'll begin with a painting demonstration and lecture.  We'll have a short lunch break and then you will paint for the rest of the afternoon with my help.

Fred Hope's Drawing for Painters Class
Fred Hope's popular Drawing For Painters class is continuing on Mondays through the Summer and Fall of 2014. This unique class is based on Fred's 30-plus years of teaching experience at the
Art Center College of Design and Laguna College of Art and Design.

The goal here is to improve each student's foundational drawing skills, elevating the quality and creativity of their painting. Examples of painters, such as
John Singer Sargent, Joaquin Sorolla and Edgar Payne, all of whom drew constantly in support of their painted works, will be presented and discussed in class.



Attendees will be working from a variety of sources, with demonstrations, examples, and constructive feedback to be featured. Exercises for the home studio will be suggested as well.

Artistic elements to be covered include: Composition, Quick Sketching, Concept Development, Value as applied to Color choices, Perspective, Lighting, Shadows and Form. Many of these exercises will begin as drawings and be finalized as paintings.

Classes are limited to 6 students, allowing for more personalized instruction and feedback. The smaller class will accommodate various levels of experience, also making it easy to join the flow of instruction at any time. Painters at any level of experience will benefit from this curriculum.

Classes are held in a spacious, professionally outfitted studio in Laguna Canyon (free parking).
Tuition is $450 for a block of 10 classes. Missed classes may be rescheduled, provided one week prior notice is given.

Classes are currently scheduled every Monday, with a morning session from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm and an afternoon session from 2:00 to 5:00 pm

If you have an interest, or know an artist that might benefit from this kind of professional training, please contact Fred directly at:
fredrichope@mac.com
