Holden Beach, NC
Refresh, rewind, RE-BOOT
While relaxing by the Atlantic Ocean, learn how to build visual impact and excitement in your TWO-D work. Discussions will focus on Elements and Principles of
Design in relation to basic pictorial composition.
In painting/drawing sessions, inspired by Coastal North Carolina, participants can work in their medium of choice.
This NEW workshop, Composition Re-Boot is en plein air, with morning lessons followed by group work time. Afternoons vary, with some additional demonstrations or one-on-one assistance. Some evenings include salon presentations and discussions. While Ms. Fogg demonstrates with tools of drawing and watercolor,
topics will be relevant to creative souls of all disciplines.
This is a one week experience on the Atlantic coast...with a twist! (see THE TWIST below) Besides beach (shells, dunes, water, sky), there are oyster flats, live oak trees, boats & more.
Some activities will be be held in a beach house, where participants will stay. (Some local participants may wish to stay in their own homes). There are two ways of participating, plus a twist! (see THE TWIST below)
1. Join us in a spacious beach house, enjoying breakfast provisions and midday snacks.
2. Stay in your own housing, enjoying midday snacks, but
join the group after providing your own breakfast.
We've added an additional component! This is for any visual artist, no matter their medium OR whether they plan to attend the NC workshop. Join an informative series of four 1-1 1/2 hour zoom sessions on basics of composition, a stand alone opportunity.
Guest instructor Anita Mills will present Elements and Principles of Design in relation to basic pictorial composition. This will be great information for ANY visual artist.
We will practice these concepts in person during Composition Re-Boot workshop.
REGISTRATION OPEN TO ANYONE, whether attending the workshop or not.
Holden Beach is midway between Wilmington, NC and Myrtle Beach, SC - about 50 minutes from each. The Town is situated on an Atlantic coastal barrier island, facing south onto the Long Bay region of Brunswick County.
With over eight miles of clean, sandy beaches and a year round moderate temperature, the island has a quiet, family oriented atmosphere. Surf fishing and shelling are popular. The island is a sea turtle habitat and during the hatching season (May - October) those who don't mind staying up late can witness one of nature's most interesting pleasures - watching hundreds of small sea turtles "boil" out of the sand and marching to the ocean.
