April 2014 South Carolina Low Country Pastel & Mixed Media Workshops
Please join internationally acclaimed artist Margaret Evans in April 2014 for a six-day, seven-night workshop in the South Carolina “Low Country”, a charming and historic area which boasts beautiful subjects in nature, architecture, landscapes, and waterscapes. Once again, Margaret will display her teaching and mentoring skills at Palm Key Resort on Knowles Island. Located on an expansive tidal salt marsh along the Broad River, Palm Key is just a few miles inland from historic Hilton Head Island, settled in 1663.
Margaret will demonstrate her distinctive pastel and mixed media techniques, while immersing workshop participants in the sights and sounds of the beautiful and history-rich South Carolina Atlantic Coast. All six workshop days will be mixed media. Bring your pastels of all shapes, sizes & brands and Margaret will teach you how to get the best results from your pastel painting technique: soft & hard types, wet & dry techniques. This is also an excellent chance to bring your favorite media and learn how to develop techniques, working with them individually or learning to work them together, such as Margaret's acclaimed gallery works in Pastels/Gouache, Pen/Wash & Watercolors, Oils and/or Acrylics. Landscape will be covered, as well as requests for flowers, still life, portrait, and figures.
April 14-16, 2014: Artists will spend workshop phase one sketching and painting on location in three beautiful and historic cities … Beaufort SC, Charleston SC, and Savannah GA. Learn to sketch outdoors and keep your kit simple for traveling.
April 17-19, 2014: Workshop phase two will find the artists back in Palm Key’s art studio developing themes started in the field. Or continue to work out of doors, inspired by the Live Oak and Palm trees, Spanish moss, the salt marsh and salt air, a beautiful sunrise over the river, or a blazing sunset
You will arrive on Sunday April 13th and meet your instructor and fellow artists in a quiet and relaxed social setting that evening. Each workshop day will begin with a full breakfast, served in Palm Key’s Smax’ dining hall, followed by either a “paint away” or studio session. Lunch will be served at Palm Key or packed as a picnic when traveling. Each day’s activities will be capped with a group dinner, also served in Smax’. Check out at noon on Sunday April 20th after a final breakfast with friends and colleagues.
Those with limited travel time available can opt for one of two 3-day/4-night workshops, either the “on location” travel days or the studio days.
Local day students, not in need of Palm Key’s overnight accommodations, will also be able to attend this excellent workshop and enjoy three group meals daily, opting for either the 6-day full workshop or either 3-day session.
Enjoy free time at sunrise or each evening and get in touch with your own thoughts. Walk along the marsh, hike Palm Key’s miles of nature trails, bird-watch, or simply curl up with a good book on a porch with a million-dollar view.
