OPA Award Winner Debra Nadelhoffer, artist workshop “Landscapes on the Forgotten Coast”, February 8-10, 2018 (TH-SA), 9am to 4pm.
Come join us as we paint the beautiful coastal area of Apalachicola, Florida.
We will go outside to gather information through sketches, photos and small paintings. I will focus on how to simplify all of the information into masses, values and composition. We will be working on small panels or paper to keep our shapes and values simple. I will do a demo each day and then provide individual attention to each student at their easels. In case of rain, we will use our photos and sketches to develop paintings inside. Bring several (2-3 per day) smaller canvases or boards to paint on no larger than 11×14. Pastellists need to bring several pre-cut surfaces to use for the studies. Critique for each students workshop pieces is available if requested. Class will begin at 9:00 each morning and will go to 4:00 in the afternoon with an hour for lunch.
One woman show: Friday, February 9, 5:30-7 pm. Meet the artist. Wine reception open house at On the Waterfront Gallery, 117 Market Street, Apalachicola, FL. Free admission.

“My goals are to promote the lawful, ethical and responsible treatment of all wildlife and to support additions to our treasury of public wild lands as befits the Forgotten Coast’s unique and irreplaceable bio-diversity.
My hope is that these images and stories remind you of the urgent need to protect and nurture the heart and soul of Florida’s Forgotten Coast, its wild creatures in their wild places. They have nowhere left to go.
