Barbara Jaenicke Workshop

Curtis Center for the Arts
Registration opens for the Barbara Jaenicke Workshop (May 8-10) on January 4th, 6:00pm MST!! This is limited to 20 students, so sign up quickly!

FULL. Add your name to the wait list by emailing Ivadell Marie

About the Workshop, from Barbara Jaenicke:
"Once you learn the mechanics of painting the landscape, it's time to learn how to add the magic…the poetry. We'll examine the difference between paintings that merely contain elements of the landscape, and those that convey a distinct visual message… and how to gain the skills necessary to accomplish this.
We'll cover some methods that will help you develop a strong composition and edit unnecessary details that detract from the emotion you want to convey. We'll also address how to make every stroke count, considering the particulars of how you apply pigment to surface and how the quality of the application will contribute to your painting's message.
Each day of the workshop will begin with a demonstration followed by students working on a specific painting exercise for the remainder of the day. Students will receive plenty of individual help from the instructor at the easel during their painting time.
This workshop is open to all levels, although artists with at least some basic painting experience will benefit most.

Following registration, you will be notified by Ivadell Marie, Workshop Chair, with details including Supply List, nearby hotels (if needed), restaurants, etc. If you have any questions about the workshop, please contact Ivadell at ivadellmarie@gmail.com or 303.748.0141
