The Phippen Museum is offering a very special, two-day workshop for the beginning student or experienced painter who wishes to expand their skills. On Saturday and Sunday, July 29th and 30thfrom 10AM to 4PM, participants will be introduced to the basics of starting a painting, along with getting to know their brushes and mixing color from a limited palette. Students will work from a still life the first day, then from photo reference on the second. However, attendees are also welcome to bring their own reference material.
As a tenth-generation native of California, Gretchen is a descendant of the First Spanish Settlers and the California Rancheros, with roots stemming from the Chumash and Apache tribes. Her work is inspired and influenced by this rich ethnic heritage.
Today Gretchen lives in Northern Arizona where she continues to pursue her love of painting. She was nominated for the Viola Award for Excellence in Art Education, and has won awards at the Sedona Plein Aire Festival. Her works are included in numerous private collections, both nationally and internationally, as well as in galleries and exhibits at the Phippen.
So if you’ve ever had an interest in painting, this outstanding art workshop is the perfect opportunity to take advantage of lots of instructor demonstrations and insightful, one-on-one interaction. The cost for this two-day event is $150 and some materials are required.
