One Day:

3rd Saturday Workshop
Samuel Shelton 
Still Life in Oil
Shanley House Studio
Saturday, June 19th
    Sam is a talented painter whose oil paintings and drawings of portraits, figures, landscapes and still life set-ups draw in the viewer and provide a raw look into his subject’s persona. His specialty is any painting revolving around the human subject which includes but is not limited to: historical subjects, biblical scenes, mythological works, or imaginative and fantasy scenes He studied painting from the Academy of Art University and from Gold Light Atelier, but much of his study comes from visits to Museums and literature on the techniques and practices of the Old Masters.

Saturday, July 17
Patti Stepp, Palette knife painter

Patti Stepp will share her unique painting technique on Saturday, July 17 in a workshop titled "Midnight Wave."

With a palette knife, artist Patti Stepp builds three-dimensional canvases of breath-taking landscapes and majestic creatures. Her bold technique of building up the paint has taken her 35 years to develop and suggests something innovative between painting and sculpture. Her paintings reflect a remarkably unique style blending of impressionism and hints of surrealism. You won’t want to miss her class.

For the Midnight Wave workshop you will need the following supplies.

Patti uses Winton Newton 200 mi - 6.75 fl. oz. tube oils because she might use as many as 10 tubes of paint per canvas. All other oils she finds too expensive. She likes the translucency of the colors.

1. 200 mil/6.75 oz. titanium white whipped in glass jar with 1 cup refined linseed oil (light)
2. Burnt sienna 1.25 oz. tube
3. Alizarin crimson 1.25 oz. tube

Aug. 16th:  Bird Nest with spray texture

Sept. 20th:  Trees, that’s all I’m going to say!

Oct. 18th Journaling Part I. I’m not a writer so I personally won’t be making a journal to turn into an account of my daily life. I will be making a journal to keep me creative, playful, and meditative. I will be using different techniques on each page. It will be a place to keep my inspirations or glue in wonderful papers that I love. The possibilities are endless.

Nov.15th Journaling Part II. A continuation of last month’s class. More Ideas, more techniques

And a discussion about starting a journaling class in the new year. I think it would be fun to have a class where each person brings an idea and supplies so we all can do a few pages together. The $5 would be for studio use, printer use, whatever. Be thinking about this.

Dec. No Class
