Work Small & Often Workshop by Bill Mancuso

Wouldn't you love to paint and draw more? But who’s got time? This workshop will be about making time for drawing when it feels like there is no time by working smaller, and using a travel kit that can fit in a pocket, purse, shoulder bag, etc.. I have been working with travel kits since the mid-eighties and can speak directly to the great freedom and sense of accomplishment that comes from working small and often.

We'll tackle a variety of subject matter and discuss ways to approach each in a no time to waste manner. We'll talk about materials and how to put together a more personalized travel kit, discuss some subjects you might not necessarily have considered before to get more work done more often.

Location and other details available to members upon registration, and the cost is $15. Most materials will be provided, with materials suggestions upon registration. Coffee provided; members will bring their lunch, beverage and snacks (refrigerator on premise). Restrooms, plus indoor and outdoor working space (wear warm footwear either way). A fun day to try something new!

Members can register by sending an email to paint@gvpap.com

Mikel Wintermantel Painting on Copper Workshop

Learn the method of painting on copper in this one day workshop with Copley Master Mikel Wintermantel. The elegant surface of the copper plate lends itself to Wintermantel's luminous, indirect, layer by layer approach to landscape painting. Painting plein air on copper is a unique method that is surprisingly easy to do. The result is a radiant, glowing painting created with very expressive strokes of the brush preserved on the smooth surface of the metal.

You will learn how to prepare the surface, apply the oil paint using several interesting techniques unique to copper.

Every aspect including how to mount and frame the copper painting will be covered. Copper paintings stand the test of time. It is one of the most stable substrates in the art world. Small 4"x6" copper panels will be provided for the participants. (For acrylic painters, a similar method will be demonstrated using copper metallic paint on a gesso panel.  These panels will also be provided.)

Lunch is also provided, and the workshop is open to all GVPAP members, for a non-refundable fee of $10. Check your email for details.
