If a picture’s worth a thousand words, then a “Mindscape” is worth an entire book! What is a Mindscape? A Mindscape is a landscape painting that captures your feelings and memories of a location as much as its physical realm. Learn to create an evocative, extraordinary acrylic landscape painting, culled from your imagination, in this highly-innovative workshop with award-winning artist and acclaimed teacher Bruce Marion.
In Mindscape Landscapes you will:
* Learn the basic form and value structure of a landscape
* Learn innovative acrylic painting techniques to easily bring depth to your image
* Learn easy-to-apply methods of creating foliage and water reflections
* Learn to use acrylic’s fast-drying time to your advantage, to layer paint with beautiful textures
As with all of Marion’s classes, “Mindscape” will be fast-paced and fun, with instruction that is highly supportive and helps you identify your unique style. This class is for all levels.
All painting materials will be supplied for this class. Bring an apron or clothes you don’t mind getting paint on.
What students are saying:
“Thank you so much for the wonderful art experience! I have taken several workshops during my art journey of the last 20 years, but never have a been a part of one quite like yours! Your talents, your organization, your generosity of ideas, your enthusiasm and kindness, have left me incredibly inspired. I feel like my journey is taking a very different and positive path because of you.”- Linda
Classically trained, Marion received his BFA in 1978 from the prestigious Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, where he studied with world-renowned artist Pat Nagel, and Lorser Feitelson, the father of Post-Surrealism. He taught at the Otis Parsons Institute of Art in Los Angeles, before moving to Arizona in 2000. His passion to keep art alive in the next generation has led to several grants to implement month-long art programs for Arizona elementary schools. In 2015, he led a two week art workshop tour of Greece, followed by another workshop tour of Italy in 2016. He was awarded a major public commission for Sam Houston State University; the ten large works now reside in the new Social Sciences and Humanities building at the Texas college. Marion’s art is represented in nine galleries across the United States and through his online program at www.BruceOnArt.com, he teaches art students across the US, Canada, and England how to improve their art while having an incredible amount of fun along the way!
