Elio Camacho will assist students in capturing the mood of the moment and express themselves in a bold and colorful way.
This nationally well known artist has been teaching for many years. His work is in many museums and collectors’ homes. You can visit his website at www.eliocamacho.com to view a collection of his paintings and a complete schedule of his workshops which are held all over the United States.
As a painting instructor Elio says, “My mission is to provide students with the foundation necessary to be creative. My goal is to assist students in capturing the particular mood of the moment and to express themselves in a bold and colorful way.”
The workshops are very hands-on, with an emphasis on easel-side critiques. Elio says, “I believe that giving instruction is important, but showing students how this instruction applies to their individual work is crucial. Based on the student’s level and goals, I develop a program for improving each individual’s ability as a painter.”
The workshop will be November 16-17, 2014, 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. at the Island Art Association’s Art Education building.
Some of the techniques to be covered are:
-Stroke angle and how it affects depth in thick loose strokes
-Forget formulas and learn to SEE
This 2-day workshop is $175. Sign up at ElioCamacho.com or by mail at: Elio Camacho, P.O. Box 21156, Piedmont, CA 94620.
