    Take Your Paintings to the Next Level

    with AIS Master Dawn Whitelaw

    Cost: $475 for AIS members, $525 non-members (max of 12 students)

    Location: Peninsula School of Art, Fish Creek, WI

    The process of improving your work is one of the great joys of painting. However, it is easy to get stalled along this journey. Sometimes we need a little kick-start and the benefit of a new set of eyes, to get back on the path of growth. This class is an opportunity to take a good, honest look at your current work and consider what most needs improvement. Is the area that needs tweaking related to handling the paint?... or is it design, color, value, edges, or concept?

    The classroom work is divided in to three parts

    1. Identification of the area to work on

    2. Individualized exercises

    3. Studio painting to put new ideas into practice

    *Peninsula School has easels and taborets that are available for use for any artist who would like to use them.

    For the six weeks following the workshop, you will have the opportunity to continue your learning experience through an online mentorship. There is no additional fee for the online portion of the class.

    Come enjoy the process of digging deep and seeing results. The workshop is best suited to intermediate and advanced painters who have a working knowledge of their chosen medium.

    Presented by Jaclyn Mednicov, artist representative for Gamblin Artist Oils. 

    For 600 years, oil painting has been the preeminent medium of visual expression. There is nothing more natural or enduring than oil painting. No other painting media holds the same raw power of communication, pigment load and artistic possibility. Painters today are interested in knowing where their materials are from and in making the right choices for their work, their own well-being and the environment.

    The landscape of oil painting changed significantly during the 20th century – painters’ color palette was expanded with the development of modern organic pigments and the oil painting process has become safer, primarily through our work to develop contemporary mediums, solvents and varnishes.

    Still, artists today are moving toward water-based painting media because of assumed attitudes and misconceptions in regards to personal and environmental safety. This presentation explores the nature of oil painting – from the field to the palette – in order to create permanent paintings while at the same time protecting ourselves and the environment.
