Martinsburg, West Virginia
Workshop Fee $400 (Hotel and meals not included * )
Lynch brings to his class the same enthusiasm and energy as seen on his nationally known TV series "Fun with Watercolor" that has been on PBS for the last 20 years.
The objectives of the workshop are to show the vast range and flexibility of watercolor. This includes how to put emotion and conviction into painting by exploring, experimenting, and developing the creativity of each individual. Tom makes the process of painting fun, along with sharing his enthusiasm and demonstrating new techniques in an atmosphere that makes the intermediate and advanced painter feel welcome!
Future Artisan Workshops
As part of The Arts Council's commitment to supporting local artists and artisans, we are offering workshops in various areas such as the use of technology, business practices, promotion and marketing, web sites for artists, presentation of artwork, photographing artwork, preparation of submissions to juried exhibits or other competitions, and other areas that may be identified.
"How to Photograph Your Artwork" taught by Rip Smith
Unless you are content to do your art and just let it sit in your home or studio, you want to get your work out where it can be enjoyed and possibly even purchased by others. Accomplishing this has become more and more dependent on your being able to provide high quality photographs of your work, whether you want to promote your work on the Web and with email, or you need to provide images to submit for juried exhibits, competitions, or for exhibit proposals. The workshop will cover all of the basics from staging and lighting to equipment selection and post processing digital images for various purposes. While success in photographing artwork requires some investment in equipment, it is possible to put together a workable kit with affordable components.
