Master Artists Seminar
Presented by: Robert Bateman
Join master wildlife painter Robert Bateman to explore the ideas and techniques that make a successful painting. Learn how to foster creative ideas, as a good idea is the basis for a strong work of art. Participate in slide presentations and discussions, talk about Robert’s work, and create a painting, explaining the subtleties of its execution. Discuss the history of art, focusing on principles you can apply in your own work. Learn techniques that will enable you to faithfully capture your concept and express your vision. Although not an art studio class, tips on techniques will be in abundance.
You are welcome to bring photographs of one or two paintings (35mm slides or preferrably on a disc in jpeg format) for discussion and (gentle) critique, and your camera, to photograph images of beautiful Cortes Island for use in your artwork. We will take at least one hike with a view to taking photographs for reference in future paintings.
TUITION: $525 CDN (meals & accommodation extra) / 5 nights
