Vianna Szabo Pastel, oil and watercolor tour

Vianna Szabo PSA, IAPS-EP : Pastel, oil and watercolour tour

Tour Date:  May 22-31, 2019

 

Workshop description:

Vianna believes the goal of each artist is to tell their own visual story.  In her workshops she teaches students how to simplify and edit the landscape while using expressive color to enhance the feeling of light.  Lessons are taught in a step by step manner that applies to all mediums.  Vianna enjoys being an instructor and uses teaching methods that respect different learning styles.

Each student is encouraged to create a body of work through a mixture of quick sketches, longer plein air sessions, and photography shoots.  Vianna will show students how they can expand on their sketches and plein air work when they return home.  The workshop is taught though demonstration and personal mentoring that will help you find your artistic voice.
