Ned Mueller Plein Air Workshop August 5,6 & 7, (Seattle Wa area)

Study with Master Plein Air Artist Ned Mueller!
Ned Mueller, accomplished and esteemed artist and teacher, has been painting and teaching for over 45 years. He is a Signature member of the prestigious Plein Air Painters of America and a Master Signature Member of Oil Painters of America. Ned has participated in most of the major Plein Air shows in the country and won the Grand Prize of $5000 last year at the Easton Plein Air Show (one of the most successful shows in the country).

Class Description:
"This class will cover the process and all of the important principles of making a successful plein air painting. You will learn how to achieve color harmony, learn how to see more "abstractly", how to edit and enhance the scene you are painting to achieve more dynamic compositions and to find your own style and voice to become a more astute and perceptive plein air artist. It will be an intense and productive three day workshop with instructor demos and a lot of individual critiques. The class is limited to 15 students and people are encouraged to sign up early. We will work hard and have a good time doing it."

City of Hillsboro offers plein air workshop with Aimee Erickson

Plein Air Painting Workshop at the Lloyd Baron Rhododendron Garden Friday & Saturday May 20 & 21

Join landscape artist Aimee Erickson for a two day intensive plein air painting workshop. Come spend two days painting en plein air! Working outside directly from nature is challenging, inspiring and rewarding. Learn to adjust to changing conditions of light and weather. Capture the beauty you see in the landscape. Increase your understanding of atmospheric perspective to achieve a greater sense of depth in your paintings. There will be a demonstration on the first morning with individual instruction following at your own easel.

Painters will need to bring their own supplies. Aimee recommends working on 9x12 inch canvas or canvas board but students are welcome to work in any size. The rhodies will be in bloom so get out your colors! For those new to plein air, Aimee works and teaches in oils but can accommodate acrylics. Contact the Arts Center for more details about the location of the workshop.with Aimee Erickson

Hood River Artist2Artist is this Saturday!

Hey all PPASPers (and friends of PPASP too)....just a reminder that Artist 2 Artist is on this Saturday. If you haven't already signed up, you can register online or at the gallery.

The focus for this day-long workshop is to provide artists with some practical information about opportunities that currently exist for artists in Oregon and Washington. The Keynote speaker is Gigi Rosenberg who is a writer, speaker, presentation coach, and author of The Artist’s Guide to Grant Writing: How to Find Funds and Write Foolproof Proposals for the Visual, Literary, and Performing Artist.

In addition to Gigi’s talk, there will be a moderated panel discussion of artists who have successful experiences of getting paid for more than just their artwork. The Panelists bring expertise in education, strategic grant writing, commercial enterprise, artist residencies, and commissions.

This year the Gallery has been overwhelmed with the number of artists who question their prices and quality of work just because things aren’t selling. It’s important for artists to recognize that it’s not your artwork—it’s the economy! That said, there are things you can do about it! I encourage you to spend $25* and attend this development event (free parking and brunch is included—what a deal!) and get motivated on some actions you can take to further your art career.

*Price is $15 for juried Columbia Art Gallery members; please register directly at the gallery or via phone to receive discount.
