“Givers of Plenty” Soft Pastel (9.25 x 21 in.)  by KC Caldwell

“When we sit down to eat, many of us thank the farmer, but I wanted to paint something in gratitude for the farm workers. Without them, we are helpless to get food to the table.”

“Neowise over Chapel Hill” photo by Cheryl Strahl

“Heading out on Hwy 41 to Chapel Hill near Shandon, CA, this was the specific vision that I was hoping to capture on July 17, 2020. However, the reality was that the Comet Neowise and the Chapel were separated by about 30 deg. So, my vision is a composite – altered reality.  It was an unforgettable experience – absolutely magical! Miss you all!”
Thanks! – Cheryl

“Wild Mustangs in Eastern Sierra” Photo by Cheryl Strahl

“A recent trip over to the Eastern Sierra provided some time for me to spend with the wild mustangs.   It’s always a pleasure to watch them interacting in their most beautiful playground setting in the mountains.” Thanks, Cheryl

open studios

Registration Opens August 1, 2020 & Closes August 15, 2020

Limited Space to 100 artists.

SLO County Arts Council is partnering with Art Advocates to bring our community a Virtual Open Studios Art Tour. This Tour is aiming to bridge the gap between artists the community, in a time where everything has moved to an online platform.

Each artist will have a feature photo of their work, their name and medium, and a link to their own website. (Individual artists can contract with Art Advocates to design a custom website as needed.)




New Upcoming Classes – Head Painting Fundamentals Starts August 10th
We will focus on the structure of the head. Starting with the large simple masses and working our way down to the features. This class is a must for anyone wanting to paint more convincing heads, animals or humans.
Working with a limited palette will allow us to put most of our attention into the structure ie. “drawing”. If you are new to head painting or ready to sharpen your head painting skills this is the class for you.
Major Topics that will be covered:
Form, Edges, Edge Sequences, Focus, Paint Quality, Foreground/Background, Simplification, Major Masses of the Head, Introduction to facial features – Nose, Eyes, Mouth and Ears
Each session of classes meet 6 times via Zoom (2 Mondays and 4 Fridays) all at 9am.
The cost is $60 a session or $180 for 3 sessions.
To sign up you can comment below, message us or go directly to Jason’s website:…/visual-principals-of-painting-o…
