Art workshop: Secrets of the Masters—Loosen Up! with William Schneider
Franciscan Life Process Center, Lowell campus
Thursday-Sunday, September 13 – Sep 16
Students routinely complain, “My work looks hard and tight. I wish I could loosen up!” This workshop could be the answer to your prayers. Nikolai Fechin and Anders Zorn were Masters of suggestion (and arguably two of the greatest artists of all time). William will discuss their techniques as he paints a portrait from the live model. In addition, on one of the days you will copy (with instruction) a head study by one of those masters. On the other days you will incorporate their techniques into your own work as you paint from the live model. This four-day workshop is for oil or pastel students of all levels. You will learn: power through suggestion, one simple technique to create sparkling color, how to avoid unpleasant detail, masterful edge control, how to simplify color harmony, and the key to turning form with temperature. The cost of this workshop is $550.
