Equestrian and sporting artist, Ruth Buchanan’s paintings have been exhibited at International Horse Events as well as in galleries in London, the rest of the UK and in Europe. Ruth's fascination with the form and dynamics of horses, humans and other animals and how the fall of light translates the everyday and commonplace into the extraordinary are realized in paintings of atmosphere and movement executed in watercolor and oils. While her paintings are expressive in nature, Ruth paints in the traditional of realism; sometimes with landscape or architectural background and sometimes using the juxtaposition of her subject with an abstract color background to contribute to, or create tension within the narrative. Enhanced by her skilled draughtsmanship and thorough knowledge of anatomy and biomechanics, the result is an exciting and contemporary take on the tradition of sporting art. 

Who: Watercolor artists interested in enhancing their equine painting skills.

Note: While I do not wish to discourage anyone with a great passion for the subject matter, this workshop will assume basic, beginner watercolor skills. Additionally, participants should have some basic knowledge of equestrian anatomy. If you are still interested in attending, but are concerned about not meeting these criteria, give Tara (the organizer) a call and we can talk about solutions. Class Size: Limit of 12. Class meets 9:00-4:00 with a one hour lunch.

Cost: $150 before April 15, 2017; $200 after April 16 until close.

KAA classroom has a kitchenette with tea and coffee and a refrigerator for your lunch. There are also eating establishments nearby.

Be on the look out for an old house paint brush, or pick up a ‘chip’ at the hardware store! Bring your lunch to eat during break while your clay is drying a bit.

June 7, 14-DRAWING CLASS and PAINTING CLASS combined taught by STEVE KLEIER
“Some people want to draw for its own sake, others to improve their painting. This class is good for both because you will learn principles of drawing that can be used on their own or applied to painting. Join me this June for emphasis on Travel Sketching and Painting. We cover a variety of subjects and always include useful information about drawing. If it is landscapes, city scenes, figures or whatever I'm sure you will gain a greater understanding of how to look at the subject like an artist. Join me for fun and learning.” Steve sends out an email with reference photos before each class. Supply List: Sketchbook, drawing pencils, (about a 6b), kneaded eraser, medium hardness charcoal, a good size newsprint pad, drawing board and clips. All media (Oils, Watercolor, Acrylic) welcome. Please bring the supplies you have and the colors you enjoy using but include canvas or paper, a palette or tray, sketchbook and medium soft pencil or graphite stick, brushes, spray bottle.
