Mudheads and Hot Dogs... OOPS! Paint Out August 30th...

WHAT: OOPS! August 2015 Paint Out / Cook Out... organized by Bernie Rosage.

WHEN: Sunday, August 30, 2015 from Noon until... Model poses from 12:30 to 4pm with breaks at 30 minute intervals. We will collect a donation for the model.

WHERE: Bernie's House, 414 Brentwood Ave. (near Downtown) Jacksonville, NC 28540.

DIRECTIONS: Just off of Johnson Blvd near the bike trail along Marine Blvd in town. Simply set your GPS for 414 Brentwood Ave. Jacksonville, NC 28540 

WHY: Simply put... we LOVE gathering with like minded artists and painting from life!

THERE'S MORE: We are having a cookout after we paint! Bernie and Tami will provide the hot dogs and buns and those coming can bring a side dish and drinks.

What the heck is OOPS and how do I join the FUN?

There are plenty of beautiful trees and homes at and around Bernie's house for the landscape painters... BUT... we will have a live model who will pose for us outside in natural light from 12:30-4pm. Bernie will share what he learned at the John Ebersberger workshop he attended this summer. John was a student of Henry Henshe at the Cape Cod School of Art. Henshe was a student of Charles Hawthorne... founder of the school. Bernie will work in the Cape Cod style of doing a "mudhead" but artists can paint in any style they'd like. If you choose to paint a mudhead you will need plenty of color, palette knives, and a stiff support. If you choose to paint the model we are asking for a donation for their service.

Check this link out for some history of the Cape Cod School!

Newbies welcome... all mediums and skill levels... simply show up with your gear and be prepared to have fun! 

No worries... there are NO art-snobs in our group! 

Just bring a side dish and fellowship with us at the cook out too!
