LPAPA is pleased to host a 3-day “Artist in Residence” pastel painting workshop in Laguna Beach with Signature Artist Gil Dellinger, Tuesday February 7th through Thursday February 9th, 2023.
Ready to take your pastel painting skills to the next level? Need some inspiration and techniques to kick-start your work? This class is for you!
Join Gil Dellinger, an award-winning painter and LPAPA Signature Artist, for an intensive 3-day painting workshop learning techniques to inform and improve your on location painting skills. Gil will spend 2 days “in studio” walking you through his process, developed and honed over a 40 year career, and 1 day painting on location.
Class meets from 9am-4pm each day, with a 1-hour lunch break. This workshop requires some painting experience with at least a strong familiarity with pastels. The workshop will include lectures, hand-outs, demonstrations, lots of one-on-one instruction, with two days working from Heisler Park images and drawings indoors “in studio” and one day outdoors “plein air” painting on location at Heisler Park in Laguna Beach. Gil will demonstrate his painting techniques and students will have the opportunity to paint several studies in this intensely focused, 3-day pastel painting class. Students must provide their own art supplies, meals, and transportation to and from the workshop. Maximum of 12 students; requires a minimum of 6 students.
In addition to the workshop, the LPAPA Gallery is pleased to present an “Artist in Residence” Gallery Showcase Exhibition by Gil Dellinger, February 2 – 27, 2023. During the workshop Gil will be demonstrating the various techniques exemplified by the work showcased in the exhibition.
