Painting Workshops

"Art does not solve problems, but makes us aware of their existence," sculptor Magdalena Abakanowicz has said. Arts education, on the other hand, does solve problems. Years of research show that it's closely linked to almost everything that we as a nation say we want for our children and demand from our schools: academic achievement, social and emotional development, civic engagement, and equitable opportunity.

En Plein Air Texas

San Angelo, Texas. The San Angelo Museum of Fine Arts and the San Angelo & area communities will welcome 35 Competition Artists coming from 18 states to paint the town and surrounding countryside this October. Artists were selected by juror Roger Dale Brown out of a talented field of applicants from 27 states and Canada.

Moving On

Through adversity we paint, and in it sometimes comes our best comes forward. This is a painting from the “Chase County Plein Air Festival.” I had passed this scene at different times of day, and decided on an early morning try. Up well before the sun, I had to guess on where my bovine subjects were. Not so easy, I was asked to “move on” by a rancher, then the cows moved on, and in came a skunk, and I politely urged her to “move on”. But as plein air artists we do our best and go on from there.

Always something

The life of an artist is a bit different than many, the life of a plein air artist is stranger still. A little looser, and you can't let things get to you.

the MVIS

The Missouri Valley Impressionist Society.Summers painting on location at Indian Cave State Park, with fellow MVIS founders Jeff Sparks and Rachel Mindrup. (not shown, Brent Seevers) Here some of the ideas on creating a group for representational artists, to help grow, and build impressionistic art in the upper Midwest were formed. (Loosely, mostly we painted )

Sept 4, 5, 6               3 Day outdoor workshop            Blue Ridge, Georgia

Teaching a 3 day plein air workshop just before the Blue Ridge Fall Plein Air Event. Brought to you by the Blue Ridge Mountain Arts Association and Art Center. This workshop will cover the essentials for painting outdoors, with focus on painting quickly to capture the scene.

Blue Ridge Georgia is considered to be one of the top art towns in the state, set in the natural beauty of the Blue Ridge mountains, with unspoiled mountains and clear streams cutting through the valleys. The workshop ends as the 14th Fall International Plein Air Festival begins.

Enjoying my Falls

This workshop is designed for those who want a better understanding of the methods and techniques to landscape painting, indoors and outdoors.

Greg will take you through the process of seeing, thinking, and learning to understand how and why “less is more”. Taking in the vast amount of information and breaking it down into manageable portions through shapes, values & color, using a limited color pallet.

We will be painting different subjects each day, on location. (Weather permitting)  There will be plenty of “one-on-one” guidance, demos, and a question & answer session on a daily basis. A class critique will be conducted at the end of each day.

This workshop is appropriate for all levels with a basic understanding of the materials.
