Milwaukee Artists Resource Network
Come paint with the Milwaukee Artist Resource Network and experience learning Plein Air ‘urban landscape’ painting on the Milwaukee Riverfront, as well information on art collecting, education, and advocacy. Using water soluble oil paints participants will have the opportunity to get some basic landscape painting instruction from local award winning Plein Air painter Anthony Sell. Anthony has a bachelor's degree of Fine Arts Painting from the Milwaukee Institue of Art & Design and has competed over the past three years in over a dozen plein air competitions throughout Wisconsin and Illinois. He is a member of the Wisconsin Plein Air Painters Association as well as the International Plein Air Painters, and has three paintings which were recently accepted into the Richeson Wisconsin 2011 Plein Air Painting Exhibition. You can see examples of his work here: workshop is open to all levels of painter from beginner to pro... we'll provide the paint, brushes, and canvas panels. If you have an easel, bring it along or we'll have some to share. Once you've completed your mini-masterpieces you'll have a chance to display them at the festival in MARN's tent or bring them home with you. Workshop is held from 1-3pm. Suggested donation $5.00
