Open Studio

The November 18th Open Studio will be held at Pat O'Brien's Chevrolet, 3880 Pearl Road, Medina. Park and enter on the Pearl Road side near the bay doors.

Kathy Kraus will be modeling for us in either Victorian or Civil War clothing. Please bring a cover for your workspace.

There will be no Open Studio in December, and we will be relocating for our January session. We will discuss the relocation on the 18th for your input (or call or email me). We are seriously considering Buehler's River Styx (on Route 18 in Medina) community room which is a wonderful space that is available for us. I'd be interested to know your thoughts on the change.

Hopefully we can have a good turnout this month at O'Brien's.

MCAL Fall 2014 Workshop - November 1st

Linda Hutchinson Presenting Artist
Using Value to Punctuate and Strengthen Your Drawings and Painting

This one-day workshop will focus on using value, both local and altered, to affect the mood of a given drawing or painting on November 1, 2014. Although we will be drawing at this session, the value lessons are easily transferable to paintings. In the morning we will be working on a still life with objects that each artist will bring for him/herself. In the afternoon, we will work from vintage photographs. My goal is to help each artist assess ways to improve upon drawing from reality using the design elements and principles, as well as to consider value as a key ingredient for creating a specific mood in the work.
