Danny Jones Workshop Oct 28th – 30th!

Danny Jones Art Workshop

Danny Jones Workshop

The Danny Jones Art Workshop is different from any other art workshop that you may have taken. “Having been an art teacher for 35 years, I know that it is important to build on each workshop participant’s own artistic abilities. I help them to progress at their own pace. For everyone to achieve the best of their artistic abilities, I constantly monitor and give each participant’s work constructive, individual attention.”

Each person is at a different place in their artistic search, therefore, I work with each participant individually by continually walking around monitoring each person’s work.  Participants may work with any medium they choose; watercolor, oils, pencils, pastels, etc.  (It can be a great time to try something you’ve never tried before and/or +a time to mix media.) Each artist will need to choose the subject matter for their workshop painting or drawing projects – person, animal, landscape, still life, up to you. Bring the photographs (quite a few) that you want to work from, preferably photos that you took instead of magazine photos.  Painters may want to have their subjects drawn on their paper/canvas before the workshop begins to save time. Should a participant feel uncomfortable about his or her drawing skills, he/she may choose to wait until the workshop begins to get my verbal help.

Each day begins with a “mini-lesson” on topics such as: drawing skills, shading, drawing the human body, portraits or composition.  The participants spend the remainder of class time working at their own pace while I continue to collaborate with each person about his or her work.  Should you have questions, please call: 817.707.9473 or email: joneswisener@hotmail.com

Please visit my website: www.dannyjonesartwork.com

 

October 28, 29, 30. 9:00-3:00, $275

WVAL General Meeting Information
When and Where
Our next WVAL general meeting will be Monday, May 13th, at 6:30 pm, in the Silo Gallery and Glass Studio on Hwy. 12 across the street from Middleton Brewing. The facility has a large parking but if you and a friend want to car pool that’s good too.
Presentation Topic
Elissa Beach will be our host and guest speaker. She will provide a tour of the studio and we will see that not all beautiful glass is blown glass! This fused glass studio is the largest purpose built warm glass studio in Central Texas. Discover all the features that makes this building unique and learn how warm glass is created.
Elissa will provide a cold works demonstration (cutting, grinding, and sanding) as well as explaining how images are made using fused glass techniques.
Added Attraction!
Elissa and her husband, Chester are currently remodeling the original silo building and you will get a tour of this facility as well.
Don’t Miss It
This will be an wonderful learning experience for all our members. Make plans to attend.
