Don Andrews: Figure Workshop
FIVE DAY WORKSHOP
MAY 2nd - 6th (9am-12pm & 1pm-4pm daily)*
Ellis River Art Studios LLC is hosting Don Andrews, a nationally known watercolor artist and workshop instructor. He has conducted painting workshops throughout the United States Canada, Mexico, Europe and Africa for over 30 years. Don is an active member and past board director of the American Watercolor Society. His paintings have received numerous awards in national watercolor competitions, including three awards from the American Watercolor Society, and two Best of Show awards from the New England Watercolor Society
Addressing the figure as the subject for a painting with the same artistic freedom and looseness employed when attempting other subjects in nature is the central theme of Don’s figure class.
“Throughout the workshop I will be putting forth the concept that successful
figure painting is more than a visual explanation of anatomical parts. We
also benefit from exploring the figure through color, design, and paint quality
directions as well.”
Don’s classes are geared to intermediate and advanced painters who are looking for a challenge. Daily demonstrations will excite and stimulate those artists who are eager to stretch beyond the usual answers and discover a new looseness and expressive paint quality in their work.
Workshop hours may vary depending on the desires and needs of each individual workshop within the framework of a minimum of five hours to a maximum of six hours per day. Generally, morning sessions will be from 9am to 12noon, an hour for lunch, and afternoon sessions from 1pm to 4pm.
Material list will be provided upon registration or upon request.
* Don Andrews will be traveling from Texas therefor Ellis River needs to meet the minimum class requirement by April 2nd or the class will be cancelled. Register early!
