Rick J. Delanty
  
“Drawing for Painters” in San Clemente, CA
 
This three-day studio workshop will emphasize drawing techniques and tools, and seeing to draw accurately, in preparation for painting.
 
We will experiment with a variety of drawing tools, including wet and dry media. Both deliberate form-building and gesture will be used to capture the subject’s character.  How to handle a paintbrush for drawing will be demonstrated. Drawing techniques used in creating realistic paintings will be demonstrated, such as blocking-in, perspective, and establishing effective value and color relationships in a painting. Simplification, editing, and overworking will be addressed.

There will be a demo concerning how to effectively “start” a painting.

Artists may use the medium of their choice to create drawings that are becoming paintings, and that demonstrate believable perspective, form and depth. If you want to create paintings that “look more real,” through the improvement of your drawing, this workshop is for you.
 
Beginning and intermediate oil, acrylic, watercolor, gouache, and pastel painters are welcome. Some prior drawing experience is necessary.
 
Location:  San Clemente Art Supply, 1531 No. El Camino Real, San Clemente, 92672
Tuition: $375

“Expression & Response”

Lori Putnam’s paintings are a personal and genuine response to a scene, and she encourages her students to learn to do the same. Lori believes that each artist sees differently and should leave their distinctive mark on the canvas. However, letting go of formulas and finding the confidence to honestly express ourselves can seem daunting or difficult. Students will leave this workshop excited, ready to experiment more on their own, and above all, pointed towards meaningful, personal artistic growth. The workshop will include lectures and demonstrations, individual painting time, personalized instruction, and group critiques to promote your progress and take you to the next level of creating poetry in your paintings. This class is appropriate for advanced beginners, and intermediate and advanced painters. Previous plein air experience is highly recommended. 

Lori Putnam’s approachable, giving nature, energetic demonstrations, and hands-on teaching style have made her one of the most sought-after artist workshop instructors and her workshops often fill-up rapidly. “Expression & Response” is the only workshop she will be teaching on the West Coast in 2015.
