Register to join LPAPA Signature & Invitational Artist Rick J. Delanty as he leads an online Virtual Mentor Session, Saturday February 27, 2021, 10 am PT (11 am MT; 12 noon CT, 1 pm ET). Rick will come to you live-streamed to share lessons and critique works submitted by registrants to help you create a Composition that Works!
Although there might not be any “rules” to painting, there are principles that guide an artist into efficient and effective designs. Many of those principles have to do with composition, specifically the well-chosen arrangement of lines, shapes, spaces, value and color into a design that is beautiful and powerful. When a design says exactly what you want it to say—it works!
Rick’s lesson includes a critique of works submitted by registrants and Q&As with attendees. Instructions for submitting your painting for Rick’s critique will be included in the registration confirmation email (due to time constraints, not all submissions will be critiqued live, however, the lessons shared in the critique will benefit all, and all registrants will receive Rick’s feedback). All registrants will have exclusive access to rewatch the event recording.
Registration is required to be eligible to submit a painting for critique consideration and to receive Zoom event access link. The deadline to register to submit a painting for critique is 10 am Thursday February 18th. After the 18th, you may still register to attend and watch the live critique session. Deadline to register for the live stream event is 5 pm Friday, February 26th; registrants after 5pm on the 26th will receive access to the recording, however, access to the live event can not be assured.
All registrants will receive a private link giving them exclusive access to rewatch the recording after the live event. The Session is expected to be 60-90 minutes.
As an added bonus, at the close of the live Mentor Session, LPAPA will draw the name of a participating artist in attendance who will win the opportunity to have a 45-minute private critique session with Rick!
