A special thanks to all of the extraordinary artists that I have had the good fortune to meet in the workshops over the years. It is a fantastic journey and I am grateful! - Marty Brens

"The Art Of Painting"

 


Develop your imagination and technique, focused on the academic principles of color, design, value and draftsmanship.  Working from still life and photo reference with landscape.   Receive individual instruction as you really learn to "see" what you paint.  There will be demonstrations and class critique.  Students will be exposed to painters such as Lougheed, Jacob, Payne and Dixon.

Students will be comfortable in the well-appointed modern studio.

 

Kim Mackey is considered by critics to be one of the best wetern artists working today.  The Denver Post has called him, "A master of this genre".  Educated at the Colorado Institute of Art, his early career as an illustrator paved the way to his present stature as an eagerly sought after painter. Kim's work is included in many important public colllections as well as private collections throughout the country.

 

Mineral Spirits will be available for $10 for the duration of the workshop
