Plein Air Painting Workshop!

 

Plein air painting offers a fun way to quickly improve your skills in seeing and painting. Joan Vienot, winner of the 2016 Bagdad Milton Plein Air Paint-Out and the 2015 Lynn Haven Local Color Plein Air Festival Paint-Out, will present how to utilize shape-making to start a plein air painting in a way that will offer a high likelihood of success. Joan will show how to use recognizable shapes to make an interesting composition, will give tips and practice in thumbnail sketching using two and three values, and will demonstrate the initial layout of the composition using identifiable shapes. Joan will paint in oils, but the concepts also apply if using other media. This One-day workshop in Watersound Origins will immediately be followed by the two-day Flutterby festival and plein air paint-out at that same location. The recommended supply list for this workshop is at http://joanvienot.com/workshops/joan-vienot-day-workshop-en-plein-air. Call CAA to register, (850) 622-5970. $40 for members. November 10, 9am – 3pm. Watersound Cafe, 573 Pathways Dr Suite 101, Panama City Beach, Florida 32413 

Creative Classes at the Blue Giraffe!

Paint Like a Rock Star

Every Friday in June from 9am – Noon

Learn to paint with complete freedom so it feels as natural as breathing. Local artist Aaron Sutton can teach you a simple formula that will erase any hang ups you may have about painting. You will learn to paint quickly, and with more confidence. Be prepared for a high energy rock ‘n roll art class! There will be only 4 students at a time to maximize personal attention. 16×20 canvas and all materials are provided. Bring ripped jeans (optional) snacks, water, caffeine (also optional) and a positive attitude. Pre-registration is required.

Silk Art Scarves

Every Friday in June, from 10am – 1pm

Create a beautiful silk art scarf. Ebru is the art of floating dyes onto a water surface and then using a stylus, stakes or combs to make intricate patterns with the dyes on top of the water surface. Artisans, Gary and Valerie, then stretch a 72”x14” silk scarf onto the water surface and the design is instantly absorbed by the silk. The scarf is then dragged off the water and rinsed in a water bath. The customer takes the scarf home in a baggie to dry. The designs can be simple and abstract, or more intricate, making chevron, peacock and other beautiful patterns. Either way, the scarf is always one of a kind! Drop-ins are welcome.
