Mark Shasha
September 23 & 24, 2017
Capturing the Living Landscape Painting in oils outside is tricky enough; clouds, wind and sea refuse to stand still for the artist. So much is going on. And the occasional bugs don’t help! During this two-day workshop award-winning artist Mark Shasha will help you tackle the problems and share his insights from 30 years of experience. Mark will discuss composition, traditional materials and the methods to help you conquer the challenges and reap the rewards of capturing the natural color, light and mood of a landscape on your canvas. www.markshasha.com

Available by the day as well! $75 per day members $85 per day non-members.
This workshop is for all levels of experience.

Exploration of Color! This workshop will be an exploration of color and how we may broaden our understanding of its use in bringing our concepts into reality. Each painting deserves its own palette.

We want to understand what color can do, what it does sometimes without our conscious decision about it, and how by understanding some of the interactions between colors, we can use that power to make our paintings more alive, and especially, more unique. No one else will make the same decisions or mixtures that you do. We can all learn the same notes, but the song won’t be the same when I sing it as it will when you do.www.evelyndunphy.com

Robert Simone
Plein Air Oil/Acrylic
October 5, 6 and 7, 2017
Robert Simone is a respected instructor who strives to inform, encourage and inspire. He is known for both his ability to demonstrate and to explain. He is a generous, organized and patient teacher. According to one appreciative student, “He knows what we need to know and is willing to tell us!” Robert says, “The impulse to paint is an emotional response to nature. But it requires some sort of framework through which we can express ourselves adequately.” Simone draws a correlation between music and painting, “In music, the scale provides the basic framework for expression. In painting, shapes, values, colors and edges provide the framework for expression. In that sense, painting becomes a translational process. It’s a visual language. At its most fundamental level painting is noticing and comparing. That’s what I teach, the fine art of noticing and comparing!”

Mitch Baird and Eric Jacobsen
October 17, 18, 19 and 20, 2017
Plein Air Painting Historic Gloucester Harbor! A message from Mitch - “This will be a joint workshop with my best friend and painter extraordinaire Eric Jacobsen in one of the most historic and picturesque harbors in the country!!!  It will be a 3 or 5 day plein air workshop through the North Shore Arts Association, and will be the week following the Cape Ann Plein Air festivities. A great reason to arrive early and enjoy the CAPA event and artists. It will also be in conjunction with the NSAA retrospective exhibition of the late great Charles Movalli which we will visit and discuss!!”
