2020 Four Day Workshop with Michele Byrne

February 26 - 29

Hours:  10 am - 4 pm 


This four day workshop will be indoors the first two days, outdoors for the next two days.

Learn to create dramatic paintings with palette knife and impressionistic brushwork.

This class will be held indoors the first two days. On the first day, I'll be teaching the basic rules of perspective as well as creating a strong value study.

You will learn how to design a painting through value and strong composition that will lead your eye through the painting to tell a story. You are the director and in this class I will show you how to direct the viewers eye with value studies and strong compositional plans.

The second day I'll be teaching various techniques on how to hold the knife and make a great variety of marks. Information on paint manipulation and brushwork will also be included. We'll paint a still life or floral on the second day.

The last two days we'll head outside, weather permitting, and practice what you've learned.

Each morning there will be demos and in the afternoon I will spend time with each student helping them through the process.

These will be fun and inspirational days on the beautiful island of Key West!

Workshop Fee is $425 for Non-Members and $400 for Art Center Associate & Artist Members
