Upcoming Workshops and Collaborative Projects Dec 2011
Plein Air Workshops
We had a few hard core plein air artists showed up on 11/12 taking pictures and painting and sketching on locations in downtown Lewsville.
Please plan to join us for another session on 12/10 Saturday from 10 to 1 P.M.
If you cannot make it on 12/10, it is perfectly acceptable to come any time between now and 12/10, take picture or do sketches or painting on location. These works including photographs will be eligible for show on Jan 7th.
Jan 7th Exhibition
The main theme is Plein Air (work created out of doors). This includes photographs, and drawing and paintings made in any media on location in Lewisville.
If you are not an outdoor painter, and prefer the comfort of your own studio, art work executed in studios is also acceptable as long as the Theme is Lewsiville and is based on your own photographs or sketches.
Group Art Project
The following five VAL members signed up to create panels for this large painting: Wanda, Chuck, Paula, Catherine, Murthy, and Valerie. Want to get in on the fun and help? As we still need two more artists, contact Murthy Mantha.
Murtha, coordinator of this project, needs all of the photographers who wish to have their photo considered for the subject matter of this project to submit their work no later than 12/10/2011 to him.
One thing to keep in mind about the photograph is that when it is divided up into eight pieces, two rows and four columns, each piece should look reasonable enough to stand on its own as a separate painting.
Painting can be done in Oils or Acrylics.
We need eight canvases 30 x 30 size. Murthy is planning to purchase the panels, but each participant will need to pick up their share of the cost. If you know where we might be able to get something inexpensive, please let Murthy know.
