Michael Orwick Workshop March 25, 26 & 27, 2011 (Cannon Beach)

Cannon Beach Oil Painting Workshop 2011

Think of walking into a gallery and instantly being grabbed by a painting from clear across the room. What is it that reaches out to you and pulls you to get a better look? Learn what it is that first draws you in and how the painting continues to cast a spell. Through hands-on instruction, informative conversations and step-by-step demonstrations, students will gain an understanding of the interrelated components of painting- including value, shape, color, and edge relationship. You'll be painting right alongside artist Michael Orwick and every student will be given personal attention and friendly critiques.
Take home your own light filled masterpiece along with improved painting methods and theory.

Workshop Dates: March 25, 26 and 27 - 10 AM to 4 PM daily at the Cannon Beach Chamber of Commerce in the beautiful Chamber Hall - 207 N Spruce St Cannon Beach, OR 97110

Tuition is just $250 for all three days and the special reception (for those in town for less time there is an open option of $100 per day).

Bonus: On Saturday after class (4:30-5:30) a special reception with appetizers and wine is being offered free of charge at Dragonfire Gallery for this group.
Bonus #2: Get ready for painting outdoors with a Plein-air equipment overview and suggestions list and weather permitting I invite you join me before and after class to paint the magic of Haystack rock in plein air.
