Steamboat Art Museum to host three-day workshop

The Steamboat Art Museum will be holding a workshop taught by our exhibiting artist, John Fawcett, at 9 p.m. July 28 through 30. The cost is $450. In this three-day workshop, we will be covering both painting techniques in oil and watercolor, as well discussing composition, values, edges and color theory. Participants will be painting live horses at a ranch in North Routt and discussing anatomy and easy-to-use measurements of the horse to improve their horse painting, as well as principles that can be applied to other areas of art. A syllabus will be given to each student to reiterate the workshop discussions for future reference. Demonstrations and one-on-one attention will be given to each student. The class is limited to 12 people. Call the Steamboat Art Museum at 970-870-1755 to register and for additional information.
