SPRING 2013 WORKSHOPS
STEPHEN KOURY WORKSHOPS
All workshops emphasis individual growth and quality over quantity. We keep the class sizes small so that each student gets one on one attention and can move at their own individual speed.
***Basics will be covered in all workshops. Brushes, how to use them, paints, set-up, mixing, thinning, applying, extenders, board preparation, etc.
If students finish to Steve's satisfaction, then they can work on techniques of their choice.
We have enjoyed sharing our knowledge. The growth in our workshop students has been wonderful to see. They have made jumps which we have seen in their work. Paintings are moving quicker, fur is softer, & birds feathers are lighter. We look forward to seeing you soon. Until next time-- Take care and keep on painting---- Stephen & Necia
Some of the things we heard from people who attended past workshops:
I learned feathers and enjoyed the acrylic/gouache. My favorite part of the workshop was Stephen's enthusiasm & willingness to share. Stephen is a great instructor. I want to do another workshop. You need to have them more often. I have taken a lot of workshops all over the country. This is the best I have ever been treated at a workshop. Thank you. Kathy, Ocoee, FL
The workshop was even better than I expected, I learned so much, how to paint in much greater detail & with greater ease. I learned how to paint what I see. Steve is extremely positive, very good with every level of instruction- bird feathers, marketing, painting technique, color mixing, etc. I would do it again, at least 3-4 times a year. How about the food- AWESOME!! what a total pleasure to spend 3 days in artist paradise with great instruction & fabulous food. It was a creative retreat for my soul. Tricia, Tampa, FL
