2015-16 Workshop Schedule:

Thurs/Fri October 1-2 – Southern Utah Art Guild
“Next-level Landscapes” Instructor: Roland Lee, NWS
This workshop is designed to help artists become better interpreters of the landscape by learning to see what nature does to catch our attention. Our role is not to duplicate nature but to create new images based on our personal experiences. Using Powerpoint and live demonstrations, plus printed handouts, Roland will guide us through the steps he uses to create exciting studio paintings from on-location sketchbook drawings and ordinary reference photos.We will do a number of painting studies in class, and complete one finished painting. Topics include: Learning to see the light – values, edges, and shapes: Developing Your Artist’s Brain; Creating wonderful three-color skies in minutes; Using a travel sketchbook; and Making winning paintings from wimpy photos. Roland will be demonstrating in watercolors, but will be teaching timeless principles that are fundamental to all mediums of art. Although all mediums are welcome, the experienced watercolorist will probably gain the most from his presentation. Fee $175.

About Roland Lee’s Drawing and Painting Workshops:
With over 35 years experience, Roland Lee is one of today’s most successful watercolorists and sought-after art workshop instructors. As a signature member of the National Watercolor Society, Roland has conducted workshops throughout America, helping hundreds of artists bring their art to a higher level. He has also written articles for “The Artists’ magazine and “The Drawing Board” magazine.

Experience Levels: All Roland’s workshops are intended for painters with some previous watercolor experience and a knowledge of basic watercolor painting techniques. You don’t have to be a pro, but we do want you to feel comfortable. No specific paints or materials are required. Just bring what you like to use. A suggested materials list can be found below.

What to expect: Typical classes consist of teacher demonstrations, powerpoint presentations, and actual student painting time under Roland’s supervision. Classes will be mostly in the studio, with some short outdoor sketching trips to learn to see in nature. At least two plein air outdoor painting workshops are offered each year in southern Utah’s spectacular National Park country.

Meeting Times: Classes generally meet from 9am to 4pm each day with a 1-hour lunch break (on your own).

Tuition and Cancellations: The Class fee is due at reservation. You will receive a full refund if cancellation notice is given 30-days prior to class time. No refunds for cancellations will be given after that time. Be sure to contact individual workshop sponsors for specific registration information.
