Exploring Texture

9am – 4:30pm (lunch from noon to 1:30pm)

This year students will be immersed in the rich panoply of textures—silk, velvet, skin, copper, glass, flowers, wood and more. Every object has a quality that defines it—soft, shiny, matte or see-through—and successfully painting different textures requires succinctly conveying the qualities that define a subject. All demonstrations will occur in the evenings to maximize painting time during class.

Painting Demonstrations

All the instructors will do demonstrations to help further explain what they are teaching during class hours. The first demonstration will begin the night prior to the first class to orient students to the week. Then the week will be full of dual and individual demonstrations on painting still life, portrait and the figure. Learning happens more easily when students see the instructor tackle the same problems that they have struggled with in class.

Accommodations and Meals

For those students staying at The Lodge—an updated Southwestern hotel sitting atop a hill overlooking Santa Fe—classes will be just moments away each morning after enjoying a complimentary breakfast in the hotel’s restaurant. Beverages and snacks will be provided throughout the day in a break room for the students’ convenience and comfort. The hotel also has a hot tub and two fireplaces—one outdoors and one in the lobby—for the students’ use, as well as frequent shuttles to Santa Fe’s historic downtown plaza. Students can either bring their own lunch, drive to many nearby luncheon places or take the shuttle to nearby shopping malls for lunch, which will be from noon to 1:30pm every day.

To reach the reservations department of The Lodge, call (505) 992-5858 or (888) 563-4373. To receive the group rate, reference the group code ‘B05F15’ or ‘Bright Light Fine Art’.

All instructor demonstrations will be held after class in the hotel’s stage-lit theatre from 5 – 7pm, maximizing working time in class as well as giving students the rest of the evening to enjoy the great restaurants and sights in town. The exact schedules will be announced about a month before the workshop begins.
