Using the methodology taught by the late great landscape painter Ray Strong, the Wildling Art Museum will conduct a week-long painting workshop August 3-7. Called "Building a Painting," the workshop will lead students six years old through adult from the stage of preparatory drawings and panel preparation, through completion of one or more paintings in acrylics. The class, limited to 20, will meet Monday through Wednesday, 10 a.m. to noon, in the Museum, and Thursday and Friday off-site for the experience of "plein air" painting.
The Wildling Art Museum specializes in programs for all ages with the expectation that children, parents, and grandparents enjoy learning something new together. The "Building a Painting Class" will be taught by landscape painter Melinda Weymouth, who painted with Ray Strong and can pass on his theories and inspiration. Weymouth, who has taught many art classes for the Wilding Art Museum, is currently art instructor at the Santa Ynez Charter School and for Arts Outreach. She will be assisted by Ventura school teacher, Emily Goodall.
The per person fee, which includes all materials and an instruction booklet written by Ray Strong with John Iwerks, is $130.00 (Museum members, $115.00). A discount will be offered to families that enroll three or more members, and scholarships are available for students who could not otherwise afford it.
Pre-registration is required. To register, send a check made out to the Wildling Art Museum to P.O. Box 907, Los Olivos, CA 93441 or call the Museum, 688-1082, for credit card charges. Information is also posted on the Museum's website: www.wildlingmuseum.org.
The Wildling Art Museum is located at 2928 San Marcos Avenue in Los Olivos, next to the Corner House Coffee shop. Public hours are Wednesday-Sunday, 11-5. Admission is free, though a $3.00 donation is requested for adults who are not Museum members.
