This course explores the essential components of contemporary landscape and figurative realism painting. Demonstrations of various elements of foundational skills will be presented for the purpose of building a learning community through the visual arts of painting and language.
Presented by the Machetanz Arts Festival.
Join Dean Larson as he speaks about his process of creating exquisite works of art in the time-honored classical atelier tradition.
5th Annual Festival: June 5 & 6, 2015
2015 represents a key transition point for the Machetanz Art Festival. Not only will this be the fifth anniversary of the festival, it is also the first time we will have the opportunity to make use of the new Glenn Massay Theater. The theater will offer a new venue for festival events and in the years to come is likely to add a performing arts component to our options for our Alaskan patrons of the arts.
Once again we will have an opportunity to shamelessly exploit a now famous son of the Matanuska-Valley – nationally recognized artist Dean Larson!
