BUSINESS OF BEING AN ARTIST WORKSHOP • GLEN KESSLER • MON, MAR 11 • 3-6PM

Practices header 1.jpg

INSTRUCTOR: GLEN KESSLER

Being an artist is actually like running a business. Every artist has the production side of things down. But if all you had at your business was a production house and no CEO, CFO, CTO, PR department, or sales team, then you'd end up with what most artists have resigned themselves to...a warehouse full of unsold goods! This workshop shines a light on simple steps you can take to develop your 'entire business' and be successful as an artist.

A complimentary glass of wine and light snacks are included in the price of admission.

​CINDY PROCIOUS: CONTEMPORARY STILL LIFE PAINTING • MONDAY - SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 18-24 • 10AM-5PM

WEEKLONG WORKSHOP: CONTEMPORARY STILL LIFE PAINTING

Contemporary Still Life Painting is a week-long course focused on realist painting using methods of the Old Masters. It is open to anyone who paints in oil, from beginner to advanced.

Students will learn a layered indirect painting technique, incorporating underpainting, layering and glazing. We will explore a variety of techniques for realistically creating the illusion of different surface textures, as well as how to achieve rich color and depth of form to create a luminous work of art with a high level of finish. We will also learn how to use Photoshop as a tool to create more successful paintings.

Emphasis will be placed on design, composition, and lighting to create a dramatic still life set up.  Working from direct observation, we will cover the basic elements of painting in oil - from the initial drawing on canvas, to color, value, edge control, glazing/scumbling, and final varnishing.

Students will create their own complete narrative scene incorporating food and drink of their choice. Through demonstration and individual instruction in a fun and relaxed atmosphere, students will be guided through the entire process from the first drawing on the canvas to the finishing flourishes.

The workshop will meet Monday & Tuesday where artists will begin their paintings. Then the paintings will need to dry for 2 days. The workshop will resume on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. There is also a Painting Challenge scheduled for Wednesday, where Cindy will demonstrate her quick-painting method working on subjects of the students’ choosing.

still happenings.jpg

ARTISTS’ PANEL DISCUSSION

LOCATION: VISARTS 155 GIBBS ST ROCKVILLE, MD

Still Happenings is a contemporary still life exhibit by living artists curated by Marie Riccio. Each of the artists brings their own unique viewpoint to their work, sharing how they observe the world, and communicating their perspective through the objects they choose, their color palette, physical use of paint, approach to composition and their commitment to the process of observing.

From Glen Kessler: “I encourage Compass Atelier artists to view this show anytime from Dec 7-Jan 13. The panel discussion, however, will likely be truly a joy. The exhibiting artists are friends, colleagues, and even my mentor, Mark Karnes. I hope to see you there.”
