St. Michaels Art League is pleased to presents a workshop entitled Textural Variations in Landscape Painting (Pastel and Oil) with Lisa Mitchell to be held Wednesday, Thursday, Friday — May, 10, 11, 12, 2017 from 9:00 am to 4:30 pm at the Calhoon MEBA Engingeering School, 27050 St. Michaels Rd, Easton, MD 21210. Fees are members $395; non-members $435. Registration is currently full, but a waiting list is being formed.
This workshop is designed for both Pastel Artists and Oil Painters and is a unique opportunity to study with talented painter and instructor Lisa Mitchell. Oil Painters will learn to use a variety of brushstrokes, thicknesses of paint and painting knives to create the illusion of texture on the painting surface. Pastel Painters will experiment with under painting. They will use the painting surface, the pressure of the pastel stick and mark making to achieve textural contrast.
