Sherrie McGraw Workshop
Painting with an Idea: The Secret in All Great Art

Workshop for the Hoosier Art Salon to be held at the Stutz Business and Art Center in downtown Indianapolis, Indiana.

In this workshop, students will learn what it means to go beyond painting objects to capturing a visual idea. There will be still lifes and models available to explore painting concepts that can give paintings more visual impact and universal appeal. 

With over 40 years teaching experience, McGraw will open students eyes to visual ideas that elevate realistic painting from mere illustration to the mystery and wonder of great works of art. Having taught both painting and drawing at the famous Art Students League of New York and art institutions across the country, she has experience inspiring both beginner and seasoned professional to the next level of development.

All skill levels are welcome but students will benefit most from the class if they familiarize themselves with David A Leffel’s book—An Artist Teaches—prior to the week. Although it is currently out of print, it is in eBook form at www.brightlightfineart.com.

Price $825 (includes model fee)
