“Learning to See Reflected Light”
Addren Doss will give a short demonstration on seeing reflected light, and how colors affect each other. Then you will have the opportunity to explore this for yourself by doing one or two small quick still life paintings. Bring a small set of pastels, one or two 6X6 or 8X8 pieces of paper to work on, and a towel or paper to cover the table in front of you.
“Artist Resumes, Bios and Artist Statements.”
Kim Werfel will present a program filled with information about these important tools for artists. Learn how to confidently write your resume, bio and statement for the greatest professional impact. You might want to bring your current Resume, Bio and Artist Statement with some note paper for creative brainstorming!
