Photography ~ Chad Phillips www.chadphillipsphotography.com Chad will help you make sense of the dials and apps available for whatever device you take pictures with.  He is going to help you “see” what you are planning to capture, with new eyes.  Help you take a creative approach, bringing more artistry to the pictures that are documenting your life.
Either of these painting classes will gain the individual perspective, value and color.  Neither of the classes are going to be hosted through follow along painting principal. 
You will learn when to put the photo down that is used as reference, encouraging the individual to put their own personality into the painting. 
If weather permits plein-air painting will ensue.
Watercolor Painting ~ Bonnie Brahms www.brahms-art.us  Bonnie will familiarize you to the materials necessary, materials you might want to play with and materials to maybe put way back on the wish list.  She is going to help you make sense of water and the page when you add color.  Her layering techniques are the focus.  She takes you to new levels for understanding where to go from value into color.  How to not make a muddy mess of the scene and how to go forth bolder than the average watercolorist.  She is a fast study of the student and will take you from where you are in your painting development, be that you are totally new or advanced. 
 
Pastel Painting ~ Chris Cernetish www.pastelchris.com Chris will help you get past that blank canvas.  She is going to go into what materials work and don’t and why she came to those conclusions.  She is going to help you with techniques that many pastelist don’t use for backgrounds.  Her focus study is going to be water and trees.  Both being rather challenging subjects no matter what medium you are using.  Chris will guide you from whatever point of study you are, from the total novice or the advanced will both gain heaps of direction.  If you think that smearing some chalked color on the page and blending them in is the correct procedure, then you need to take this pastel class, for that is incorrect.
 
Glass Staining ~ Mary S Hunt www.maryshutstudio.com  Mary is going to give insight into a lost art; glass staining.  These are age old procedures for “painting” design onto glass and firing the pieces in the kiln “baking” the elixir into the substrate, creating a new sheet of glass.  No glass experience is necessary for this particular class.  However, should you work in glass this class can begin to take you to a new level in your work.  No glass cutting will be involved.  All the materials are included for this workshop.  This class helps ANY person working or playing in the arts to better understand value, as you work in only one color hue that renders all the ranges of shade and highlight.

These artists have dedicated their study to their mediums for many years and offering to you their compiled findings.  Come and enjoy your new found love of art as well expand where you currently reside in the arts.  This is a not to be missed workshop, one that doesn't come around often.  If ever again.
 
Night events will bring even MORE insight into whichever class you choose. 
 
Come and Join us in Platte, SD You will be glad you have.
