WORKSHOPS

PLEIN-AIR PAINTING AND PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOP

MAY 13-23, 2009

http://www.rousset-perigord.org

Come along for a great French Vacation Workshop.

 

I'll be joining a really fine watercolor instructor, and great friend, Kathy Dunham (Check out Kathy's website here), along with a small group of around ten people, for a ten day workshop experience.

 

I will be demonstrating ink and watercolor sketching for this workshop, and I'll be available at all times to help both painters and photographers with framing, composition, lighting, planning, correcting for conditions, and finding the heart of the subject so that participants may work in their chosen discipline, whether plein air or studio painting, oil, watercolor, pastel or photography. I will also be happy to share my (Un)limited palette (the use of only the primaries. (See below)

 

A firm believer in “you learn to do by doing”, I will help you find your own voice, develop your own “eye”, rather than simply showing you a technique or an approach to copy. I will encourage you to express your own vision and make suggestions to help you improve your work and achieve your goals as an artist, whether in painting or photography.

 

While exploring the beauty of the Dordogne, you will also explore the beauty and insight to be found in your own inner responses. ( I last visited there in 1984, and have longed to return ever since. My visit to the caves was a life-changing experience.) More on that, when we visit them together.

 

Both photographers and painters are welcome, as are all levels from beginner to advanced. Those using digital will, of course, have the advantage of seeing and discussing their work at each day’s end.

 

Students should be familiar with their cameras, as we will be focused on the seeing side of photography, rather than on the technical. Be sure to bring along your manual, just in case it’s needed, and your laptop, if you have one, with your favorite image editing program.

I hope to see you in France! Feel free to call or email me if you have any questions.

I have no workshops currently scheduled. However, I am available to teach both painting and photography workshops, ranging from a two day intensive (Un)limited Palette (painting with the primaries only, to a week-long version of the same.

I also teach the Photographic Eye, with an emphasis on seeing potential images, capturing them, and taking them beyond the snapshot, as well as photography as research for painting, and for promotion of the artist's work.

Past workshops have varied from week-long camping trips in Arizona's Canyon de Chelly to Luxury accommodations in France, Spain, Mexico and Peru. Horses are sometimes, but not always involved.

NEW! Having started A Farnsworth a Day, a daily painting auction on the Internet, where I have posted a new 6 x 6 Inch painting every day since August 01, 2010, I am now offering a five day Daily Painter’s Workshop. Each day will start with a lecture/discussion, followed by a demonstration in the morning, and in the afternoon each participant will create at least one painting. Participants will learn to create both a painting a day, using my
(Un)limited Palette, and a blog, or web log, on which to showcase their work. Students for this class are invited to use either watercolor or oil.

If you would like me to speak, demonstrate, or teach in your area, for an artist's group, school, or museum, or if you would like to either organize or participate in a special workshop based on a specific location or season, i.e. fall in Jackson Hole and Yellowstone, or camping in Canyon de Chelly, call Thea at 505 982-4561. Or drop me a line at workshops@johnfarnsworth.com
