Are you struggling to capture the beauty of a scenic view? Are you trying to paint beautiful light, but the painting does not seem to WOW anyone? Do your landscape paintings look ok, but you are not sure how to take it to the next level? Then this oil painting workshop with Carole Boggemann Peirson is the right one for you! The workshop is for beginning and intermediate students and will include topics such as composition, values, color scheme, focal point and more. Goal is not to go home with a finished masterpiece but to study and practice through a demo, examples, exercises and hand-outs…oh yes, and lots of personal attention! Bring your work for a (private) critique if you like.
Cost: $195 (supplies not included but available to registered students through Arts on Main)
Fresh from his winning appearance on the new Discovery Channel show “Master of Arms”, which pits craftsmen against each other in a weapon-forging competition, local village blacksmith George Cramer will present his episode followed by an audience discussion.

Watch and learn as award winning artist, David Heath, demonstrates plein air painting on location in Gloucester Courthouse. In case of inclement weather, David will paint from studies in the gallery at Arts on Main. Listen while David discusses his choice of materials and equipment and learn as he explains why he decides to paint a particular subject. Emphasis is placed on personal expression of the subject and taking artistic license when painting a scene. He will discuss the need to create a preliminary sketch before painting a particular scene. Questions and discussion are welcome! Meet at Arts on Main and walk with David to his choice of painting locations near the gallery.
Free and open to the public as part of the Artist in Residency Program
