Old World Painting and Drawing with Jason Mayr

Oct 21, 9:00am - Oct 21, 1:00pm

Art Center Morro Bay
835 Main St
Morro Bay, CA  93442 Map

This bi-weekly oil painting class is a 10 month course through November, beginning with drawing techniques and progressing through black and white, limited palette to full palette.

All levels of ability and experience are welcome.

Each class consists of a video lesson and 3 reference images (a landscape, portrait and still life) that are emailed before the class at Morro Bay Art Center. The student can choose to paint one or all of the reference images or work from their own reference. Class time is spent painting with direction and feedback from Jason. Following the class another video will be delivered, Friday Feedback where we look at a students work and see how the lesson might be applied to make the painting even more beautiful. Each lesson/block ends with Monday Morning Inspiration (video emailed) where a master painting is examined and broken down to give the artist ideas of how the lesson was used to create that masterpiece.

The reference images are the same images for both lessons/blocks in that month. This allows the artist time to develop a painting. We ask for students to please sign up ahead of time so that the reference images and video lesson may be sent out before class time.

Morro Bay Art Association is very excited to host watercolor classes designed for artists, beginner to advanced. Classes will be ongoing throughout the year, featuring a variety of guest instructors. Classes are every Thursday from 9am – Noon, featuring guest instructors teaching 3 – 4 sessions each. Pre-registration is recommended.

Please register online at www.artcentermorrobay.org or by calling (805) 772-2504 and speak with the docent between 12 noon – 4pm daily.

Virginia Mack worked as a part-time instructor at both Allan Hancock College and Cuesta College in the fine arts departments.

Virginia and her late husband John, also an artist, spent endless hours exploring the back roads of San Luis Obispo County seeking those bits of landscape that are visually stimulating. Virginia works primarily in watercolors and mixed media and is a colorist at heart. She builds most of her pieces in a wet-on-wet process (wet watercolor paints on wet watercolor paper) resolving the pieces as the paper slowly dries. She creates the forms with rich colors that she plays off against contrasting colors thereby subduing them while preserving their presence in layers of color. She often mixes the watercolor process with work using colored pencils, pastel, charcoal, and pencil.

Virginia received her education in fine arts at the University of California, Berkeley. She has taken additional classes at The California College of Arts and Crafts and in independent workshops.

Drop-ins are welcomed.

Art Center Morro Bay

Morro Bay, CA  93442 Map

Morro Bay Art Association is proud to present Zentangle© with certified instructor, Debbie Gedayloo.

The Zentangle Method© of mindful creation is a way to relax, focus and expand one’s imagination. Through guided systematic patterns, students learn to trust their creativity, increase awareness, respond confidently to the unexpected and discover the fun and healing in creative expression.

Incorporating a practice of Zentangle© allows for increased neuroplasticity and youthfulness in the brain. Anyone can feel successful and confident with the practice. If you can write the letters: I, C, S, O…you can follow the patterns. The underlying theories and systematic approach in the Zentangle Method© allow the participants to quiet the mind and focus, one stroke at a time.

Debbie has practiced the art of Zentangle© for four years stating, “Often when sitting in meditation, I simply can’t quiet my mind and I bounce all over the place in my head. But, when I put the pen to the Zentangle© tile, the outside stimuli fade away and my entire being becomes quiet.” Debbie believes in the healing potential of this method and is excited to teach others how to tap into the hidden wisdom in each of us!

Zentangle© is non-representational and unplanned so you can focus on each stroke and not worry about the result. Join certified Zentangle© instructor, Debbie Gedayloo for monthly, celebratory and meditative art.
