Registration is closed

Come learn from one of the masters, Barbara Jaenicke! There are a few spots still available! Attendees must be fully vaccinated (honor system) and masked.

And don't forget the Meet and Greet at the Sewickley Gallery and Frame shop Friday 9/10 6-8 where you can see some of Barbara's work.

Barbara's description of the workshop is:

Once you learn the mechanics of painting the landscape, it’s time to learn how to add the magic…the poetry. We’ll examine the difference between paintings that merely contain elements of the landscape, and those that convey a distinct visual message… and how to gain the skills necessary to accomplish this.

Specific skills addressed will include composition and editing, value structure, color temperature, and edge control. We’ll also address how to make every stroke count, considering the particulars of how you apply pigment to surface and how the quality of the application will contribute to your painting’s message.

Each day of the workshop will begin with a demonstration followed by students working on a specific painting exercise for the remainder of the day. Students will receive plenty of individual help from the instructor at the easel during their painting time.

This workshop is open to all levels, but those with at least some experience using pastels will benefit most.
