My wonderful in-laws gave me money for my birthday this spring and told me...."DO SOMETHING FOR YOURSELF!!" I knew that I wanted to use the money to go to our Middle Tennessee Summer Workshop, and I'm so glad I did! It was such a wonderful time of connecting with art educators I have known for some time....and meeting some new peers! The workshop itself was also wonderful. I took 5 semesters of watercolor/watercolor mixed media...and never had a formal class in any other form of painting. So the class I attended was painting texture & realism. It was a no fear super encouraging time to try something new! Here are some of the pictures from the day.
SO EXCITED TO BE AT THE AMAZING FRIST ART MUSEUM
Kicking off the workshop...our amazing
Middle TN Chair on the TAEA Board
Melody (TAEA President Elect) gave an inspiring keynote!
There were three classes going on that were a "refresher" on painting. They were abstraction, watercolor, and acrylic. I took the acrylic class that focused on realism & texture.
Some people get too into their work! ha ha
This one AMAZED me!
So many talented artists at this workshop.
Isn't it wonderful how different these are...though the same subject matter!
You know it was a great day when their is paint on your hands!!!
Nick Cave's show is presently at The Frist Art Museum...
AND IT IS AMAZING! It is pure eye candy. I could have spent hours looking at the work on display.
