2014 Armand Cabrera Workshops



I am teaching two workshops this year the first will be in Highlands North Carolina at The Bascom Center for the Visual Arts.  My workshop, Practical Solutions for Painting Anything will focus on helping artists improve their skills to translate the beauty in the world around them into paintings. The class time will be split between working in the studio and working from life.  The dates are Monday through Friday August 11 to 15; hours are 10 AM to 4 PM






In September this year I will be in Southwest Harbor, Maine at the Acadia Workshop Center   Again the focus is on both Studio and Outdoor Painting. My workshop Successful Paintings for Any Level will be 4 days Monday through Thursday September 8 - 11, hours 9 AM to 4:30 PM.





These workshops have been designed by me to make each student better at what they do, not blindly copy my style of painting. I believe each artist has a unique way of seeing the world and expressing themselves. My job and my responsibilities as a teacher are to preserve that unique expression and strengthen the students skill sets, giving them more choices to explore their creative vision.
