Workshop Overview

Sitka Art Circles are a way to come together in a casual atmosphere and have a bit of artistic fun. Everyone is welcome! Composition magic: We know it when we see it, but what makes it happen? During this four-hour class Sarah will give you tips on designing successful paintings and share her fun technique for value studies using black and white markers on toned tan paper. Plan paintings that grab the viewer’s eye and learn a new way to sketch. This Art Circle session is a great add-on to Sarah's "Oil Painting Boot Camp" workshop.

About the Instructor(s)

Sarah Sedwick was born in Cleveland, Ohio and has lived in Eugene, Oregon since 2007. In 2001, she earned a BFA from Maryland Institute, College of Art. Her oil paintings celebrate the simple beauty of everyday objects and are most often inspired by color combinations and perceptual effects. All are painted from life.Sarah has been teaching workshops on alla prima still life, portrait and figure painting since 2012, both in Oregon and around the country. Her teaching philosophy focuses on the technical fundamentals of representational painting and aims to make painting fun and accessible for artists of all levels. "If it isn't fun, we won't do it, and doing it is how we improve."
