A Great Christmas Gift - Painting Workshop in Punta Gorda

A painting workshop makes a great Christmas gift for a loved one, family member .... or to yourself !!

Painting En Plein Air 
Three-Day Oil Painting Workshop with Dan Graziano
Visual Arts Center, Punta Gorda, Florida
January 19 - 21, 2018   9:00am - 4:00pm 

This three-day workshop will focus on painting outdoors from life (en plein air) along with basic art fundamentals of color temperature, value, edges, composition and paint handling. We will also discuss how to develop greater skills of observation, simplification, identification of a strong focal point and quickly painting “wet on wet” (alla prima) to translate what you see and experience into strong paintings. Participants will paint every day at a different location. Each day begins with a brief demonstration by Dan followed by everyone painting, with plenty of one-on-one instruction. The class is structured for beginners to advanced painters.

Workshop fee is $500 ($450 for Visual Arts Center members).  A non-refundable deposit ($50 members / $60 non-members) will reserve your seat with the remaining balance due 30 days prior to the workshop date.  Participants must provide their own equipment and supplies.  To register for this workshop, contact the Visual Arts Center at (941) 639-8810.  CLICK HERE for a suggested equipment and supplies list.
