Enjoy this Week’s

“Big horn sheep at sunset” by Terry Greene
“Teaching how be courageous” by Terry Greene
“Delicate Delight” by Susan Kounanis
Oil Painting, 8×10
“Tumbling” by Steve Andrews
This gave much satisfaction, the blending of colors,  came with surprise. The shapes and angles and the over and under layers.  Especially using the Gesso board, the surface being solid with no
Flex. Enjoy, -Steve Andrews
“Searching” by Riki Schumacher
I named this cold wax and oil painting “Searching”, it represents a peaceful and tranquil view for me during these tough times. I purposely used soft colors, and created an imaginary scene to melt in to each time I look at it, searching for a touch of comfort. Thanks! – Riki Schumacher
“Bitsey The Pup” by Terry Greene
“Mom and Calf” by Terry Greene

Workshops at Art Central

– Monthly PRINTMAKING WORKSHOPS at Art Central –

The Central Coast Printmakers will be holding a new series of printmaking workshops focusing on linocuts  (moving on to reduction linocuts and multiple plate linocuts) starting February 8th.

*(Full vaccination and masking will be required )*.

Maryanne Nucci and Tricia Reichert will be teaching these workshops.

CCP would like to introduce more people to the very interesting and varied world of hand-made prints. We are pretty passionate about all of
the possibilities of contemporary printmaking and we are looking forward to sharing some of them with you. All ages are welcome and no prior
experience is necessary to attend these workshops, just a desire to learn, explore and experiment.

Some of our members will also be attending each of these workshops to join in and help you along the way.

Also, if you enjoy the workshops and printmaking, we’d like to invite you to become a member and join in with us as we learn and share with each other in our various studios throughout the year.

(High School and College students will receive a discount if they show student ID).

WHEN:
Monthly on (usually) the second Tuesday, 1–4pm

(Please note – February’s workshop will be on the 15th)

March 8th, April 12th, May 10th and June 14th

Fee: $50 per class (some supplies will be provided and the rest can be purchased on-site).
There will be 10 places available in each class.

*To register (or to be included on the interest list) for these workshops, please contact Tricia* at Tricia@tricia-reichert.com


– Weekly WATERCOLOR WORKSHOPS at Art Central –

BEGINNING WATERCOLOR – With Virgina Mack

WATERCOLOR WITHOUT FEAR

Wednesdays 1:30-3:30, $35/session.

(No class on February 23rd because of our fundraiser event)

To enroll please contact Virginia Mack: vbmack@charter.net   

This is a watercolor class designed to let you jump in and try out this engaging medium through experimentation. We will push colors around, discover what we can do with the brushes, and enjoy the process. Your results will let you discover the possibilities that watercolor offers you.

As we progress, we will experience and develop the basic techniques of watercolor painting and realize the characteristics of the medium.

This class is designed for beginners and for those with watercolor experience who wish to expand their knowledge of painting in watercolors.

Join us! -VIRGINIA MACK


INTERMEDIATE / ADVANCED WATERCOLOR – With Virginia Mack

BEYOND THE BASICS

First and second Wednesdays of every month, 10:30am- 12:30pm, at Art Central, 3rd Wednesdays around the county
$35/session
To enroll, please contact

Virginia Mack: vbmack@charter.net   

This is a class for those who love imagining ways to further their visual expressions. We are mostly watercolor-based but branch out into other media. We discuss all elements but mostly color and its interactions, and we explore composition, intention, and process.


Attention Teachers!

Please start thinking about demos and workshops you’d like to teach at Art Central!

In the hope that Omicron will slow down and slink away, we’d like to begin organizing workshops and classes again. With everything still up in the air we don’t expect you to commit 100%, but let’s start talking! Let us know your thoughts.

We can always cancel classes if covid still remains a safety hazard, but we would like to start booking more classes for March and April!

HAPPY PAINTING!
