  • Takapuna Workshop with Pamela Caughey - Februrary 2018

     Art +   Trip  =    February in New Zealand       

     Workshop with Artist Pamela Caughey 
    February 11 - 15, 2018


    "Oil and Wax Workshop – Dynamic Color and Powerful Design," 
    in Takapuna, Auckland, New Zealand

      Join Pamela Caughey  for a workshop for artists working with cold wax medium and oils, who have a basic understanding of how to create texture and layers in this medium, but want to explore the next step - how to create a powerful composition using dynamic color and powerful design. Each student will be encouraged to express their personal voice through a better understanding of what they love most in their art. Students will learn how to mix and apply a wide range of color, grays, and glazes differing in value, temperature and saturation through fun and explorative exercises. Through demonstrations, presentations, and working one on one, each student will learn how to strengthen their compositions by understanding what makes strong design. Students will create both small studies and larger works to explore key concepts.  With this information, each student will be able to approach a painting at any stage of development and understand the “when” and “how” to pull their paintings together to a satisfying conclusion. We will also discuss the importance of an experimental approach and risk taking during the creative process. Most workshop time will be devoted to painting, with helpful demos and presentations to better understand key concepts presented. There will also be time for individual critique and discussion of each student’s personal artistic goals and progress.    

     The workshops will be held in the Studio of  Takapuna Art Supply Store . Owners Jim & Sandy Auckland are the sole distributers in New Zealand of Gamblin paints and supplies, including Gamblin’s high quality Cold Wax Medium. Sandy can pre-order supplies for you that will be there when you arrive - eliminating the hassle of ordering and shipping.
