An Online Artist's Coop for Artists who Paint on Location
Taught by Niki Gulley & Scott Williams
Santa Fe, New Mexico
Aug. 12 – 18, 2012
There is something about Santa Fe that has drawn artists there for decades, the Light. The clean pure radiant quality of the sunlight bathes the region in a glow that makes colors come alive and adds a richness to the surroundings. This is the landscape that inspired Georgia O’keeffe and Ansel Adams, now it’s your turn. Capture the beauty of a river that has carved its way through the rugged terrain or a pueblo set against a snow capped mountain backdrop. This is one of those places that allows you to witness nature’s staggering beauty amid a setting straight out of the old west. Its location affords the opportunity to capture everything from desert to mountain and from rivers to pueblos. Along with its ideal climate and abundance of natural settings, it makes New Mexico an artist’s paradise.
Niki will conduct the Plein-Air Painting Workshop from different picturesque locations daily, teaching through a combination of demos, discussions, assistance and critiques. Sessions will be broken into different morning and afternoon locations, with plenty of time in between for shopping, sightseeing or for a leisurely lunch.
Scott will take the photographers on a daily tour where you will have the opportunity to experience Santa Fe through your lens as Scott guides you to use your camera to define what you see while achieving your own artistic vision. As with the painters, there will be daily destinations with time allowances for exploring on your own.
This unique Workshop affords you the option to choose which aspect interests you, whether it is painting, photography or both. Thereby giving you an opportunity to make the most of your Santa Fe experience.
So come join us as we take you on an inspirational exploration of Santa Fe with an emphasis on observation and perception as we help you develop your own style.
