Emerald Art Center in Springfield is sponsoring three plein air workshops this summer and fall.The instructors have three distinct styles so there should be something for everyone.
Sarkis Antikajian paints thick impasto oil (or acrylic) with wonderful juicy colors.
Bets Cole uses water-media on paper that ranges from watercolor to gouache to acrylic and sometimes all three in one painting.
Humberto Gonzalez paints lose transparent watercolors with a dash of ink stick.
The dates are:
August 6-10, 5 days, for Sarkis' workshop
September 11-14, 4 day, for Bets' workshop
October 6-8, 3 day -weekend for Humberto's workshop
All the details are on the Emerald Art Website:
I plan to attend all three.
