Get Outside With Master Landscape Painter Joe Palmerio

A Paint Out Class with Joe Palmerio

May 14, 15, and 16

No one can better show you how to find beautiful locations and paint landscapes around the plantation trace area better than Joe Palmerio. He has painted this area every year for the last ten years. Joe loves to explain why he prepares his canvas in a certain way and give you tips like warming the shadows, using a pallet knife to draw thin details like ropes, and how he can capture the light when the sun and clouds are always moving. In his morning demos you can watch how he structures the layout and how he mixes so many green colors, something Plein Air artists needs and more. The class will start with a meet-and-greet at a barbecue at a private home at 6:00 pm Friday, May 14. The next day the class will meet at a rural location at 9:00 AM and end at 4:30. On Sunday the class will start at a country road at 10:30 AM and last until the summer’s golden hours, 6 to 8 PM. Bug spray of course! Oil and acrylic painters are his target audience but any painter who wants to have a fun outing with other artists are welcome from a sketcher to any other medium user.

$350 for nonmembers, $300 for members.
Barbecue is free to students and $35 for guests.

(Membership starts at $35.)

Principles of Abstraction

A Live Workshop With Larry Moore

July 7 – 10

This is a 4-day workshop taught by artist and author of Fishing for Elephants, Insights and exercises to inspire authentic creativity. In the classes Larry explains the components of creativity, the visual language of paint, non-traditional expression, composition, the nature of good design and the necessity of concept. Larry has taught and written extensively on different ways to think, how to explore new territory, build, refine and define your unique voice. Emphasis is on building trust in your decision process, thoughtful exploration, freedom of expression toward a deeper level of painting and visual communication. All mediums/levels are welcome. Some experience in painting is helpful. It’s good to have some understanding of the mechanics of paint and to know how to mix color. However, the class is not strictly limited to painting, there are many ways for an artist to express an idea. The first part of the class will focus on idea generation in gouache, an easy to use and amazingly versatile water medium, the attendees will have to option to work in their medium of choice in the second half of the class.
Larry says, ‘If you are not enjoying the class and learning useful things, what’s the point? We will, of course, follow all Covid guidelines for face protection and social distancing. And we will have fun.” To see more of Mr. Moore’s work please go to www.larrymoorestudios.com
