The Masters have provided inspiration to artists for centuries, whether it’s learning the masters’ techniques, modeling compositions based on their masterpieces, even using their work as an inspiration for color choices. In this workshop, Takeyce will discuss the work and processes of the great Impressionist masters like Claude Monet, Berthe Morisot, Degas, and Mary Cassatt, demonstrate their techniques and offer individual assistance to all students. Takeyce will also review works of current masters and compare how they have even learned from the old masters. Instructor demonstrations, critiques and one on one guidance will be provided. The workshop is open to all media but Takeyce will be working in oil and soft pastels. A supply list will be provided upon registration and supplies are not included in the cost of the class.
Join Takeyce Walter at Indian Ladder Farm for a day of painting in “Plein Air”. Using beautiful grounds of Indian Ladder Farm as inspiration, lessons will include the fundamentals of composing and designing the perfect farm landscape. Takeyce will discuss and demonstrate techniques to enrich your paintings and offer individual assistance to all students. Takeyce will be working with oil paint, but all mediums are welcome. A supply list will be provided upon registration and supplies are not included in the cost of the class.
Here’s what my students are saying about my workshops:
We had such a good time yesterday. I am still thinking and engaged with “pastels” this morning. Just saying the workshop has wonderful “spillover” effects. You’re a fine teacher, and I appreciate so much your preparations, demonstrations and instruction. All are gentle and open. You create an ideal environment for creative expression.
– Dawn, Artist
Takeyce was delightful…….organized, informative, two demos given , a wonderful teacher and we all went home with two completed paintings each. So glad I am signed up for her two upcoming classes…….please keep her coming back!!
– Sally Higgins, Artist
“I just wanted to say how very much I enjoyed the workshop Takeyce gave on color theory last weekend. She is a very generous teacher, sharing skills and techniques so articulately. I love her. We had a good group of artists of different levels. The space was pleasant and the time sped by. I got a lot out of this class, but more importantly, I feel inspired to do more art myself. So glad I signed up!”
— Susan Weber
