Instructor: Sharon Finnegan. Bio: I grew up in a family that valued creativity, and a mom unafraid of tools. At any given time there were numerous crafts and calligraphy projects on the dining room table, furniture being refinished on the back porch, wood carvings, wood burnings, and Japanese brush paintings in progress. From this unconventional exposure, I developed my ideas of what art could be.
After attending Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, I spent the next twenty years painting murals, exploring sculpture, being mentored in Venetian plaster, and being commissioned to do portraits, logos, and illustrations. My works these days are a fusion of materials and techniques resulting in sculptural tables, mixed media landscape paintings, wildlife wall hangings, wild bird door frame sitters, and an array of functional (and not-so-funtional) pieces, many of which can be found at www.silhouettescapes.com.


ROBERT LIBERACE WORKSHOP
Line and Mass: The Figure and Portrait Explored in Drawing and Painting
Registration Deadline: August 30
This workshop will explore both the organized and elegant manner of classical drawing, and the dynamic, fresh approach of alla prima painting. Though each style has a distinctive character, together they provide the artist with a more complete understanding of artistic technique. The first day will focus on drawing methods with an emphasis on form and anatomy. The final two days will concentrate on the spirited technique of alla prima, which will center on color and paint dynamics. Demonstrations will be given each day that will illustrate each approach.
