Uncharted Retreat with Barb P. Marchand and Ankaret Dean

We begin on Friday at 3pm with an exclusive tour of the Uncharted Territory Exhibition at the Lake Country Art Gallery on it’s opening day. Having been inspired by the exhibition we shall drink tea and share ideas on how we will collectively respond, in what materials and which techniques we will use, and how we will celebrate this work publicly.

TWO DAY WORKSHOP with Ann Willsie
This workshop is designed for beginners and intermediate students - all mediums welcome. Ann will be working in oils
This workshop will focus on composition, structure and design of your landscape. Before a painting is even begun, decisions have to be made about the overall design. Some of these decisions include:
Each morning will start with a brief discussion of the above subject matters, followed by exercises designed to help you think about the composition before starting. I will be doing short demos throughout the day, as well as helping each individual with their painting on a one-on-one basis.
You will be asked to bring your own reference photos and we will spend some time going over them prior to painting.
