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. First time students are provided Zentangle© bag, pen, pencil, tortillon, tiles and instructions and extras.

Dyeing Silk Scarves

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

Morro Bay Art Association is proud to present a workshop, Dyeing Silk Scarves with Sharon Gellerman. Sharon Gellerman is a local artist who creates one-of-a-kind, hand-marbled, silk scarves and silk tallits. Sharon has a fresh and modern interpretation of the classical art of marbling on fabric. Through experimentation with color, technique and dye, she has refined her style and designs. Her sense of art has been greatly influenced by memories of Israel and her love of the California Coast. These elements are reflected in the intricate patterns and vibrant colors of her textile designs. These complex designs and skillful use of color make each scarf or tallit a unique and wearable piece of art. Marbled silk scarves are made by layering colorful dyes onto a solution of water and cellulose. This process allows the dyes to float above the liquid. Using custom made combs or rakes, the layers of color are then manipulated into unique designs. When the fabric is placed on top of the composition and absorbs the dye colors, it transfers onto the silk scarf, creating the marbling affect. If you’ve ever wanted to make your own hand-dyed silk scarf or just want to see how it’s done, this is the workshop for you.

Morro Bay Art Association is proud to present International, plein air artist and instructor, Guido Frick. Guido Frick was born in Konstanz, Germany and studied art in Prague Czechoslovakia. Professor Emeritus Dr. Janos Herczeg; University of Szeged, Hungary, refers to Frick as the “living” Bongart. Mr. Frick teaches his Impressionistic style throughout Europe and America’s western states. Capturing the mood, with oil and watercolor, he approaches each subject with bold and vigorous brushwork, using brilliant color. Frick relays, “As a painter I do not like to be labeled. I am always crossing the borderline between Impressionism and Expressionism. In art there should be no borders, no fences, no stop signs. To learn how to paint means to learn how to see.” Frick is represented by New Masters Gallery, Carmel CA, Sunset Art Gallery, Amarillo, TX, Evergreen Fine Art Gallery, Evergreen CO, Bebb Fine Art, Ludlow, England and Galerie See Motive, Konstanz, Germany. Frick has been featured in numerous periodicals and magazines throughout Europe and the U.S. to include, Art Journey America Landscapes: 89 Painters’ Perspectives by Kathy Kipp, Maler sehen den Bodensee: 200 Jahre Landschaftsmalerei aus privatem Besitz by Carlo Karrenbauer, Southwest Art, American Artist Workshop, Art of the West, Art Talk, Western Art Collector Magazine and Oil Painting with the Masters by North Light Books. During this workshop, Guido will teach you how to interpret and translate what you are seeing to a canvas and develop your own artistic language. He will discuss the use of colors, values, mood, drama and atmosphere while painting outdoors. Day 1: Students will be work on a still-life of choice, while painting outdoors to capture the complexity of color working in sunlight. There will be an introduction and theoretical instruction followed by a demo, then students will paint. Day 2: Students will be a paint plein air landscape at a location to be determined.

Morro Bay Art Association is proud to present award winning artist, Cuong Nguyen for a three-day workshop, “Portraits in Pastel”. A professional artist of international acclaim, Cuong Nguyen, works in both oil and pastel, though casual viewers may have difficulty distinguishing the two media in his hands. He almost never blends strokes, yet achieves a level of detail and smoothness of gradation that is unusual in pastel paintings! Mr. Nguyen studied at the Academy of Art in Saigon, Vietnam. He earned a degree in Illustration & Graphic Design from San Jose State University and established a successful career as an icon designer with a prominent Silicon Valley company before becoming a professional artist. Ultimately, Cuong’s passion for art resurfaced. He began to create sidewalk chalk drawings. These ephemeral artworks were as large as 16' x 24'. Cuong soon established a reputation for painting amazingly lifelike portraits on asphalt. He began to exhibit in international art fairs and returned to his studio, where he spent endless hours refining techniques with more traditional media. Cuong Nguyen is a member of Oil Painters of America, International Guild of Realism, a Distinguished Pastellist with Pastel Society of America and Pastel Society of the West Coast, Master Pastelist with Pastel of America and Master IAPS Circle with International Association of Pastel Societies. His work has been exhibited at national and international exhibits; the Triton Museum in Santa Clara, California and the Haggin Museum in Stockton. Cuong is currently represented by John Pence gallery in San Francisco, California. Learn about drawing, values, edges and composition, in a workshop designed to create in a relaxed, informative yet focused environment, for all skill levels. Students will concentrate on drawing the human head and creating life-like skin tone colors using the green foundation technique, while developing new skills in soft pastel and pastel pencil. This workshop will feature live models.
