OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAFast and Fearless FRUIT! with Patti Mollica
July 9 – July 10 2011
Time: 9:00AM – 5:00PM
This is a workshop for beginners or experienced painters who want to loosen up and learn a fun, expressive way to paint. Patti teaches a simple method using big brushes and lots of acrylic, or oil, paint, with the idea that “its not about WHAT you paint, its about HOW you paint it.” You will master a step-by-step approach to painting a simple still life, in acrylics, rendering fruit in a very fast expressive style. Classes begin with basic instructions in composition, color mixing and brush handling followed by a 30 minute demonstration. The focus will be on capturing the large shapes and lighting effects rather than focusing on small details. Students will be encouraged to work quickly and decisively, using color intuitively and boldly, with as few brush strokes as possible, Each participant will finish several small paintings.

The workshop is taught by award-winning illustrator and fine artist Patti Mollica. More work can be seen at: http://www.mollicastudio.com
