The Gadsden Art Center & Museum (13 N. Madison Street) in Quincy will be offering Master Artist workshops to push the limits of participants’ artistic boundaries — and to save them the costs of travel and lodging to study elsewhere.
The Gadsden Arts Master Artists workshops for 2018 through early 2019 introduce some new master artists to our area as well as bringing back some old favorites.
All Master Artist workshops take place in the Woodell Family Art Studio at the museum.
Museum members receive a discount on all workshops, and out-of-town guests can get a 10 percent lodging discount at the Allison House Inn.
The first workshop in the series is with watercolorist Pat Weaver to paint with a limited palette on March 22-24.
Weaver’s style is direct, loose and spontaneous.
This session is for intermediate to advanced painters. Tuition is $275 for members and $305 for non-members.
The next session is with oil painter Robert J. Simone on April 5-7.
Unlock the mysteries of painting waves in oil. Learn to capture the brilliant colors and textures of water as it crashes on to the beach.
This session is for beginner to advanced painters.
Tuition is $375 for members and $405 for non-members.
The next session is a one-day colored pencil workshop with Susan MacGregor on April 28-29 to learn the basic “artist’s” anatomy of popular pets/animals such as horses, dogs, cats and birds — and how to use colored pencils for realistic details.
Intermediate to advanced drawing skills are needed for this workshop.
Tuition is $85 for members and $95 for non-members.
Other sessions include: Midori Okasako (August 25), Manon Sander (September 27-29), Kathleen Denis (October 23-25) and Kristy Kutch (February 7-9, 2019).
