A Fresh New Season
View this email in your browser

The word  "Autumn" is a much more gentle word than "Fall", I think. It is the welcome into a chillier season of yellow school buses and bonfires.  

Usually Spring gets the credit for hosting new beginnings, but for me......I like the colorful transformation of the trees behind our house, the rediscovery of an old comfy sweater, the multiple farm stands that have sprouted up along the roadside, and the beginning again of old routines.
If you are an artist who is returning to Beech Tree Studio this Autumn, welcome back!  If it's been a while, or you have yet to try classes here at the Beech, I invite you to experiment with a 5 week class session, a workshop, or our mini retreat this October. Most classes begin next week, so.......why not try something new?

Soft Focus Landscapes
In the colored pencil world, Amy Lindenberger is a rock star. Not only has she earned her CPSA and CPX status, and 10 year merit award from the Colored Pencil Society of America, but she is a charter member of the organization’s 1990 inception.

In fact, Amy was the founder of the very first CPSA district chapter, which was Eastern Region, DC101 in Canton, Ohio. (Incidentally, this is where I learned to draw- in Amy’s home studio).  Read more....



 

Colored pencil is known for being very detail-oriented, but not so much for its painterly qualities. This technique uses powdered graphite, followed by layers of colored pencil, graphite and solvent, to create a finished product with a dramatic value range and emotional impact, and can be varnished and framed without glass!

Saturday, October 15, 2016, 9:00-3:00, Pinecrest Grove,  Mt. Morris, IL     $135

Color on Black Workshop

This technique is a little tricky, but oh so cool!  By thinking backwards you can incorporate the black base into the shadows of your drawing.
