  • Sacred Heart Church 508 High St., Chestertown, MD

This 3 day workshop will be held Januray 11, 12 and 13 in Chestertown, MD.

Photographic resources, especially in this digital age, can be a wonderful boon to artists. Mary Pritchard will unlock the secrets to success in using photographs as resource material. She will show what to look for when selecting photos to paint from. Did you know that the quality of the photograph often is not relevant? She will demonstrate ways to alter and strengthen your compositions, when to follow your source and how to use it as a jumping off point for your imagination. She will show how to develop multiple paintings from one good image. The class will include demonstrations, critiques and lots of personal interaction. The class will emphasize ways to develop strong compositions, sharpen artistic vision and use expressive pastel techniques. She will demonstrate some simple computer editing tools but this is not a computer class. Students should bring their own photographs to class.
