Alcohol Inks

Alcohol Inks

Dec 12, 3:00pm - Dec 12, 5:00pm

Art Center Morro Bay835 Main StMorro Bay, CA93442 Map

FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC

Morro Bay Art Association is proud to present a hands-on demonstration of alcohol inks!

Joan Martin Fee is described as a craft designer, television personality, author, magazine editor, Instructions editor, voiceover specialist and owner of creative me time. It’s amazing to know that Joan once had a full-time job in the aerospace industry.

One morning in 1990 she turned on the television and while flipping through the channels, came upon a nationally televised craft show, Aleene's Creative Living. She watched with great excitement and at the end noticed that it was taped only twenty minutes from home. Viewers were encouraged to submit their ideas to the "sharing segment" of the show. Joan did just that! She was totally shocked when the producer asked her to demonstrate how to make her "Dress up Dolly" using shrink wrap and feature her on the show! From that happenstance beginning, nearly 30 years ago, Joan's creative journey that includes working for the largest manufacturer's in the industry, brings us to today where she continues her passion of making people feel special through creativity.

During this demonstration, Joan will show you how to make beautiful designs with alcohol inks on ornaments, necklaces, magnets and more! Don’t miss this hands-on experience just in time for the holidays!

HURRY! THIS WORKSHOP IS LIMITED TO 10 STUDENTS

Art Center Morro Bay is proud to host a portrait workshop, Painting the Head in Oils, by Warren Chang.
In this oil painting workshop, participants will get an inside look into Warren Chang’s art practice and learn how to paint a head to final painting, using a limited palette.

Warren will teach the fundamentals of Light and Shadow and how this applies to painting a portrait, demonstrating painting a head of a live model. Students will be able to get feedback directly from Warren, ask questions in an intimate class setting, and follow along with demos. This workshop will cover how to construct a human head and learn how light falls on form with regard to value and edge relationships. In addition, Warren will share his unique limited palette in applying color in the Old Masters style. Students will focus on drawing the human head and creating life-like skin tone colors.
Warren will give a slide presentation revealing his process of creating his unique narrative paintings. By the end of this 2-day workshop, each participant will have a final painting inspired by Warren’s unique approach to painting that gives a window into his practice.

ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR: Warren Chang graduated the Art Center College of Design in 1981 and after 20 years as an award winning illustrator, embarked in a career in fine art in 2000. His work has been recognized nationally and profiled in many art publications, including the covers of American Artist and International Artist magazines accompanying a series of 8 articles on instructional painting he authored. He is the subject of a 112 page monograph book titled: Warren Chang: Narrative Paintings published by Flesk Publications in 2013. He has been honored with solo exhibitions at the Monterey Museum of Art, the Butler Institute of American Art and most recently at the Triton Museum in 2021. His paintings are in the permanent collection of the Monterey Museum of Art and the Hilbert Museum of California Art in Orange, Ca.

Awards include "Best of Show" at the Salon International 2003 held in San Antonio Texas, Southwest Art Award in 2008 and the Fine Art Connoisseur Award for painting in 2009, both from the California Art Club, 1st Place in the Raymar Online Art Contest in 2010 and the Dean Cornwell Award for Multi Figure Composition from the California Art Club in 2013. He is a Signature member of the California Art Club and a Master Signature member of the Oil Painters of America.

Mr. Chang’s subjects include biographical interiors and genre scenes of the fieldworkers of Monterey County where he grew up. His paintings portray the human condition, sometimes the disenfranchised while at the same time celebrating the human spirit.

Learn about drawing, values and composition in a workshop designed to create in a relaxed, informative yet focused environment for all skill levels. This workshop will feature live models. A supply list will be provided upon registration.

Warren Chang is planning a free lecture and book signing, following his workshop! Don’t miss a rare opportunity to learn more about Mr. Chang and take home a signed book!

RECEPTION: SUNDAY, FEB 26, 2-4PM


Art Center Morro Bay is proud to host the Central Coast Watercolor Society’s annual art exhibit, Aquarius 2023.

Juror of Selection and Awards:

Fealing Lin Award-winning watercolorist Fealing Lin of San Marino, California, was born in Taiwan and began her journey into artistic expression as a protégé of renowned professor Ching-Jung Chen in Taiwan, subsequently pursuing her career in the United States with watercolorist and senior art historian, Professor Verna Wells.

With a fluidity of colors, Ms. Lin combines impressionistic strokes and semi-abstract techniques to derive life and movement in her portrait and landscape watercolors. Her paintings adorn the paper with both harmony and emotion. Although briefly diverted from her passion by a family tradition of medicine and dentistry, Fealing ultimately abandoned her tray of instruments and high-speed drills in favor of her palette and brushes.
Don’t miss this extraordinary exhibit featuring a wide array of watercolor artworks, ranging from experimental to traditional styles.

Whether you are attending this exhibit to observe or to find that perfect painting for yourself or as a gift, you are in for a delight. Aquarius will be on display February 23-April 3,2023.

Meet the artists at the opening reception, Sunday, February 26, 2pm-4pm. This event is free and open to the public.

Art Center Morro Bay is open 12 – 4pm daily.
