Frank LaLumia is coming to the Emerald Art Center May 5-9

Frank LaLumia is coming to the Emerald Art Center May 5-9, 2008 to teach a plein air workshop.
We are leaving the registration open until 9 am on May 5th.

We will be painting at Island Park, Hendricks Park, Fern Ridge Lake, and Mt. Pisgah Park. There is still room in this workshop and it is open to beginners through advanced. Most of the currently registered students have never painted outdoors before and they know that Frank will teach us how to view the landscape, make great compostions, and create beautiful renderings in vibrant colors.

Frank will be featured on PBS later this year in a series on plein air painting. His workshops are in high demand throughout the US and Europe and we are fortunate to sponsor this weeklong workshop.

Frank is known for his ability to help each student overcome the problem of "what do I paint in this scene that is so incredibly full of detail, what do I leave out, what do I emphasize, and how do I pick the colors to say what I feel when I look at this scene." You will really enjoy his sweet personality and his generous teaching style.

Check out his webpage at LaLumia.com http://lalumia.com/ and also our webpage for the Emerald Art Center http://www.emeraldartcenter.org/Downloads/EACW-NewLaLumiaMay08.pdf. Call 726-8595 to register.
