    Two Day OIl Painting Workshop 

    Instructor Kim English AISM

    Location: Boulder School of Fine Art

    This workshop is an event during the Opening Week of 23rd  Annual AIS National Juried Exhibition held at Mary Williams Fine Arts in Boulder.  

    Class Description:

    During this class you will learn techniques for painting the figure quickly and accurately.

    Starting with setting up your palette, we will proceed with a simple block-in of the figure, concentrating on gesture.

    In conclusion, we will then paint the figure in context with the scene, with the goal of establishing a narrative. We will have a live model 

    Each day will be spent working quickly, understanding and identifying the big relationships within your paintings, and, most of all, keeping it simple.

    AIS Signature Member, Aaron Schuerr, will share his experiences in the wild! 

    His backcountry painting adventures will focus on a six-day solo painting trek across the Beartooth Mountains.  Aaron will also share his tales from painting across The Grand Canyon and in other wilderness areas.) 

    "I have had some crazy close encounters, from a middle-of-the-night scrape with a porcupine to a grizzyly cleaning its claws along a riverbank while I cleaned my brushes at dusk. It's these trips that have taught me so much about myself as an artist. In a way painting my way a mountain range is an antidote to the mad rushe of the selfie culture. It's slow by design." --Aaron Schuerr
