  • Workshop: Vitality in Landscape Painting with John P. Lasater IV

    After a short artist demonstration and lecture in each class, John will provide individualized instruction - meeting each student exactly where they are to build upon their own strengths and prior knowledge.  While enrollment in the Landscape series is recommended to build upon fresh skills, single class sign-ups are available.  Each class will meet from 9a.m. to 4p.m. with a mid-day break to enjoy a nearby restaurant or sack lunch.  Class fee is $100.  Receive a multi-class discount when you register for all three classes.  To register, call Center for Art and Education at 479-474-7767.

    May 22 - Landscape Painting 1
    This class will be held outdoors on the CAE property.  Focus on capturing nature and architecture from direct observation.  Students will have full access to the building for breaks, refreshments, or to paint inside should weather necessitate.
    June 26 - Landscape Painting 2
    July 24 - Landscape Painting 3

    Both of these classes will be conducted indoors at CAE where John will teach on how to use photographs as references for landscape paintings.  Focus will be on choosing the right photo, editing, composition, light, and technique as John works with each student throughout the creative process. Bring your art supplies.  Bring your own photo or reference a photo from your IPad or use an image from John's reference library.
