ABOUT THIS WORKSHOP:
Crowley will give a demo and one – on – one instruction on mixing color. Starting with the three basic primary pigments red, blue, and yellow. Learning how to mix these colors with white will give the students a strong foundation and understanding of how color works. The following hour will be a demo on harmonies, values and complementary colors. Working on canvas paper students will be asked to work from a still life to practice and resolve color problems. The afternoon hours the students will be free to paint from their own source material and at the end of the day a class discussion on color symbolism. Students will gain an understanding of oil paint, how to mix and apply to any surface, how to build a surface in oil paint and complete a painting.

ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR:
Anne Crowley was born in Dublin, Ireland, in 1960. Her love of art was ignited by her grandfather Liam O’Rinn whose paintings lined the walls of their home and where he had his painting studio. Anne began her formal study of painting at Dunloghaire school of Art and earned a BFA at the National College of Art and Design, Dublin, Ireland. After making her way to New York City in 1983, to study further, she earned a Masters in Fine Art from Hunter College in 1986. In 2000, she relocated from New York City to the Hudson Valley, finding the new surroundings visually compelling: the Catskill Mountains, the Ashokan Reservoir, deer, birds and flora. Her work has been shown throughout the Hudson Valley, New York City, and Pennsylvania . Anne have spent the last twenty years working as a Master Framer at the WFG gallery, where she also have had solo shows and curated group shows.
