Instructor: Judith Becker (About Judith)

Workshop Location:

Alpine Lake Resort, Terra Alta, WV; www.alpinelake.com

Description: Participants will paint four different beautiful scenes at Alpine Lake Resort, in the mountains of West Virginia while improving their art skills under the direction of instructor.  Processes such as choosing the best view for the best layout, redesigning the view, capturing the light, painting efficiently, utilizing limited colors, capturing a mood and expressing oneself will all be objectives.  In most cases, the location of each site will have facilities in case of inclement weather.

Supplies:  Any medium can be used.  Student will need to carry equipment and materials only a short distance in most cases.  An easel or portable table, chair, comfortable clothing (the weather can be cool in mornings and at night, but also can get pleasant in midday).  A light weight carry-all which can hold all the materials you will need would be useful. Medium to small sized canvases or mounted papers are recommended as  there will be a limited time to accomplish a each work.  A camera can also be a helpful reference in case a painting needs to be finished at a later date.

NOTE: All registered participants are encouraged to bring guests as there are many exciting activities available at Alpine Lake as well as the nearby areas.  Participants will receive more detailed information prior to the event.  However, it is recommended to go to the resort’s website to get a nice preview of what to expect at the location.
