"All County" Visual Art Workshop HUGE Success!

A special thanks to Karen, Mitchell, and Bernie for working with the 2012 All County High School Visual Artists today at White Oak High School. Approximately 40 of the top visual artists from Onslow County gathered today for the round robin style workshops. OOPS members taught four separate groups painting from direct observation. The first group painted outside but the wind proved to strong and the other three groups painted inside thanks to "johnny on the spot" Karen who set up a still life for the remaining groups. It was a rewarding day for the students and OOPS artists!

Great opportunity for newbies to drop and look on as several OOPS artists give a plein workshop to groups of the All County Visual Artists high school students of Onslow County. This is our third year helping these students and promoting plein air painting while giving of our talents and time. We encourage as many OOPS members to join us as possible... the teaching portion will be handled by a select few but all members can help by example and giving individual attention to art students.... whatever you feel comfortable with. If you want to be a part of something very rewarding... you will not want to miss this one!  The past events were huge successes!!

Karen, Stephen, Bernie, and Mitchell gave their time, talent, and Saturday to teach four 1 1/2 hour plein air workshops to the best high school artists of Onslow County. The day was a huge success as over 60 students from 5 county high schools (White Oak, Northside, Swansboro, Dixon, and Southwest) attended the workshop. Their day was divided into four round-robin style workshops which included plein air painting, clay modeling, figure drawing, and visual journaling.
