Do you have a passion for painting, have you always wanted to try your hand at oil painting or do you find yourself somewhere in between the two? Then this workshop is what you have been looking for, regardless of your current skill level.  It has been designed for a range of students – from those who have little or no experience painting in oils, to those who are very experienced and want to learn more about how to paint the ocean, birds and more.

You will learn the following: 

• Color mixing technique
• Brush up on brushes and strokes
• Seeing light and shadow thru the eyes of an artist
• How to keep things loose while avoiding complicated detail
• Embracing the joy of working in oil

You will be creating your own paintings with personal instruction using a photo of a seascape.

Award winning artist, Joyce Lazzara, will start you out with a 2-hour interactive demonstration. The focus will be on shoreline, birds and water using the same picture that you will be painting from.  There will be an hour break between the demonstration and then it is time to dive into your 4 hour painting session (testing the water with your toes is also fine).  Class is limited to 3 students per session, which allows for plenty of one on one time with Joyce.

    Joyce, I will be coming back to AMI on January 21 for a month or so. I truly admire your work and would love to register for a workshop if you are having one during this time period. I met you at the Pilates class at the community center and you showed me the website that made your paintings into scarves and clothes.

    I am the Co-President of the Guild of Chatham Painters if you want to view some of my work:

    Thanks so much, Pati
