Enjoy painting and drawing in the great outdoors! The Southern Oregon Guild invites you to experience artmaking at award winning Bridgeview Winery in Cave Junction, OR with local landscape artist, Silvia Trujillo on Saturday September 17 from 10am-5pm.
Silvia Trujillo believes that everyone can benefit from art instruction, even if you have no desire to pursue art professionally! Studies have shown that expressing experiences and feelings through artistic mediums — especially drawing or painting with a variety of colors — can have a beneficial effect on the emotional and spiritual healing processes. What have you been missing in your life?
Under Silvia’s mentorship, you will be guided to create a lasting artistic rendering of the beautiful vineyard scenery and experience a feeling of accomplishment working directly from nature. Silvia Trujillo specializes in a variety of painting styles and will share with you core artistic principles of composition, value, shape, line, and color harmony. As a seasoned instructor with over two decades of experience, she will share tips on how to find your creative voice, strengthen any artistic weaknesses, and avoid common pitfalls of composition details. Students of all ages have produced hundreds of successful paintings under Silvia’s mentorship, and many have gone on to become award-winning and/or career artists themselves!
All skill levels are welcome! Beginners will get a taste for the process of plein-air and more advanced artists will get a chance to hone their skills in a beautiful new location. You get to choose the materials and subjects that appeal to you, while receiving loads of personal attention and instruction. Please click the link below to see our suggested materials list.
