20newbacklitJADA ROWLAND Painting Portraits with Still Lifes
July 18 – July 22 2011
Time: 9:00AM – 4:00PM

Award winning painter, Jada Rowland, began her artistic journey as an actor on the stage at age three. She filled her scripts, over many years and productions, with sketches of her fellow actors. After a long and successful career on the stage and screen, Jada morphed naturally from performing to fine art. Her watercolor and oil portraits, landscapes and still lifes are greatly admired by her peers and widely collected by her many patrons.

In this five day workshop at The South Street Gallery , Jada demonstrates a variety of techniques and mediums. Intermediate and advanced painters will explore portraiture through drawing, value, color, composition and shape. Students will learn to mix color and handle paint in the medium, or mediums, of their choice.

A visit to Jada’s studio, a short walk away, is included in the workshop.
