Practical Solutions for Painting Anything

by
Armand Cabrera



I have another painting workshop planned in Highlands, NC; June 15 to 18 at the Bascom.  The course is designed to improve each student’s individual style. I work very hard in my workshops to avoid the one size fits all approach to teaching.


I am using my years as a production artist in the Entertainment Industry and my 20 years painting from life outdoors to helps students fill out gaps in their knowledge base to get them to the next level of their painting journey. How to improve all aspects of their work: drawing, color choices, paint application, composition and drama. I will conduct a small painting demonstration every day. Each student will receive personalized instruction tailored to his or her specific needs and level of ability. Students will work in the studio from sketches and photos and in the field.


Highlands has a sophisticated downtown with lots of great restaurants and high end shopping the whole town is very walkable and the mountain location keeps the temperatures pleasant.  The Bascom has access for the painting classes to some beautiful properties with great vistas as well as park like settings.
