Mike Rooney Plein Air 2 Day workshop at ArtSource in Raleigh, May 2-3.

Just in case you missed registering for the sold out workshop in Jacksonville on May 24th by Mike Rooney... here's another chance...

ArtSource Fine Art Gallery in Raleigh is proud to be able to present a two day workshop with notable artist Mike Rooney! Mike specifically passed along your email address to make sure that you'd have the opportunity to take advantage of this unique workshop experience. This acrylic plein air workshop will be held May 2 & 3 at our gallery in the historic and picturesque Raleigh neighborhood of Five Points. Each day will run from 9am - 5pm and the cost is $100 per person per day. You're welcome to sign up for one or both days, though we do encourage both to get the full experience. If you get 2 or more friends to sign up with you, you'll each receive 10% off of the registration fee as a group discount! Our workshops are limited in size and we think that a small participant group allows for the best and most comprehensive experience; each participant is ensured lots of personal attention!

The following topics and techniques will be discussed and demonstrated over the course of the workshop:

~Equipment needed for plein air work
~Working indoors from photos
~Simplifying objects - stick figures welcomed
~Working quickly - time waits for no one
~Massing in and values - from blobs to objects
~Color and composition theory, its not as boring as it sounds
~Color palette choices - your individuality expressed in pigment
~How to sell your work on your own and/or approach galleries with your work after you've created your masterpiece

There will be quick demos, indoor instruction (if it rains) and outdoor painting. In the afternoon of the last day, there will be a relaxed critique of works completed during class. If you would like to participate, sign the attached contract and return it to me by fax, mail, or in person to the North Hills gallery along with a check (or credit card number) for the registration fee in order to reserve your spot. Once you're registered, I'll get you the supply list. We hope that you'll consider registering and look forward to seeing you there! If you have any questions or for more information please feel free to contact me - my information is below. Also, please be sure to keep checking our website for information about other upcoming events and workshops! Thanks very much!

Just to make a correction to the above - the Mike Rooney workshop is not an acrylic only workshop, but in fact it is open to all mediums. While Mike usually paints in oils, we encourage you to use whatever medium is most comfortable to you. If you have any additional questions please do not hestitate to contact ArtSource or Emily Greggs at (919) 787-9533. Thank you!
