November 2009 Paintout Schedule

November suddenly got very full. Three plein air shows (not counting the Springfield Market show), two plein air artists receptions (put on your party shoes), two lunches, eight paintouts and we are still taking a week off for Thanksgiving. I plan on seeing all of you several times this month...some time even painting outside.

October 30, Friday, Atelier Workshop taught by Bets Cole

We will be covering mark making in this intensive October 30th 3-hour atelier. We will explore how a painter might use the repetition of a mark through shape, value and color to create movement, emphasis and direction in a painting. Cool stuff! Everyone welcome. Bring a Sharpie, pencils and some drawing paper- any brand but at least 14" x 17" with the rest of your painting supplies. You will not need an easel.
