I Loved Teaching A Workshop At Arrowmont Oct. 14-20, 2018!

Painting on a private 4,000 acre property at the top of the Smoky Mountains. Breathtaking! 

The leaves were changing and the weather was brisk. It was a perfect time to lead a workshop in the mountains of East Tennessee at The Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts. I had 15 eager and talented students who painted, took photos and generally took in the beauty around them. We painted cabins, fields, creeks and a stunning 180 degree mountain panorama from the top of the Smoky Mountains. It was astounding!  I really enjoyed getting to know these ladies. We often ate lunch and dinner together or shared a glass of wine at the end of the day by a fire. I saw a few black bears too which made the week even more exciting. Here are a few pictures to share with you so you can get a sense of where we were. Some of the art you’ll see were paintings and exercises in progress. Enjoy!

Atmospheric Painting Workshop, Arrowmont School, Gatlinburg, TN

Join me, October 14 – 20, 2018, in the gorgeous East Tennessee Mountains of Gatlinburg, TN, where I will be teaching a week-long course in atmospheric painting at The Arrowmont School of Art. In this workshop, students will learn to interpret the landscape through process of introspection, observation and application.

By painting with acrylic and oil, you will create mood-driven art by layering, subtracting and adding molding pastes, gel mediums, cold wax medium and glazes. You will explore composition, structural elements of landscapes, color mixing, capturing light, principles of art and design along with a daily mixture of demonstrations, studio time and individual consultations. This is not a traditional plein-air course, but you will paint out-of-doors, weather permitting, and in the studio. This course is open to all skill levels however an understanding of color theory and basic painting skills is helpful.
