Anita Lovitt Offers Half-Day Workshop To Help You “Loosen Up Your Watercolors!” At Easel Art Supply In Lake Park, FL

Anita Lovitt is a painter, illustrator and public artist, known for her watercolor classes at many Art Schools and Cultural Institutions in Palm Beach County.  She is offering a half-day workshop, “Loosen Up Your Watercolors!” at Easel Art in Lake Park, FL on Friday, August 2, 2024.  Learn about wet-on-wet techniques, break free of literal interpretations when using photos as reference, learn to focus on the overall picture and less on the details. Anita’s students continue to be thrilled with their new results after a class with her. The Rickie Report shares the details here and urges you to sign up by July 31 to reserve your space!

“Spirit of Sunrise” by Anita Lovitt

 

 

“So many people tell me they want to paint more loosely, yet they get mired down in details,” Anita tells The Rickie Report. “It is easier to paint wet-into-wet when you use thick, juicy paint that is well mixed. It is also helpful to focus on shapes and values rather than details, especially at the beginning.  In the case of this subject I wanted to convey the exhilarating feeling of an early sunrise in the Everglades. The free-flowing color has that emotional component.”

 

 

IF  YOU….

 

  • Love to paint with watercolors but are uncomfortable with wet on wet techniques

  • Often interpret photographic references literally and would like to break free of that

  • Tend to focus more on details than the big overall picture

 

 

THIS    WORKSHOP    IS    FOR    YOU!

 

 

 

If you feel that your paintings are getting too “tight”, using more water AND more pigment may be the answer. Understanding how watercolor pigments want to behave when mixed with water can help you know what to expect. Then you can take more risks and achieve the free-flowing effects for which watercolor is so admired.

 

Topics   you   will   learn:

Designing painterly shapes

Integrating subject and background

Composing your painting—shapes and contrasts

Mixing paint to the right consistency

Spattering, blotting, and salt

 

 

You will warm up with some basic exercises. The instructor will demonstrate in stages how to use these techniques by painting from a photo, Students will paint along, each receiving individual encouragement. The workshop will end with an upbeat, constructive critique so that we can all learn from each other.

 

 

Please call Anita for materials list:   561.706.3653

Tom Rubin Kicks Off “Third Thursday” Meet The Artist At Modern Edge Frameworks In Port St Lucie On Thursday, June 20, 2024. Free Demo And Free Parking

Modern Edge Frameworks kicks off its “Third Thursday” Meet The Artist event on Thursday, June 20, 2024 at the Tradition location in Port St. Lucie featuring Tom Rubin, a prolific painter and photographer.  Stop by to see Tom in “art action” and hear his story of becoming a creative at age six!  The Rickie Report shares the details and some sneak peeks.  Many thanks to Duncan and Pam Hurd offering this opportunity to local artists.

Hours:  Monday – Saturday   10am – 5pm

Tom Rubin started painting and drawing at the age of 6.  His father showed him a picture in a magazine, gave Tom a set of oil paints, and there was no turning back!  We can see in the image below that he already had a sense of perspective, shading, and blending colors!  

 

 

 

 

 

 

Tom’s 7th grade teacher inspired him to focus on impressionistic art, which he has continued throughout his life. Over the years, Tom’s style has evolved to more abstract paintings with an impressionistic flair.

 

 

 

Original painting by Tom Rubin

 

 

 

Tom tells The Rickie Report, ” I never stopped painting while I worked in the picture framing industry. Now, that I am retired, I have more time to devote to my art…and more time allows more creativity. When I’m painting, I enjoy a sense of freedom to let the paint take me wherever the creative juices are flowing.”

 

 

 

“Flowers in a Garden” by Tom Rubin

 

 

 

He goes on to say, ” My paintings reflect me and what I am feeling at the time.”  Tom works with acrylic paint, showcasing mainly abstracts and impressionism. His paintings often start with a vision and it may take a day or weeks for the vision to be clear enough to put on canvas.  Sometimes, they stay as the original thoughts, but more often, they take many turns and changes as the painting evolves.

 

 

 

Original Painting by Tom Rubin

 

 

 

Tom can be sleeping and start moving his hands as if he had a brush in them. At any time of night, he may get up and begin creating the piece feeling a need to put it on canvas before if disappears.  Believing that one style is too limiting, Tom is eager to try new techniques and mediums, which are evident in his collection.  Tom is also very open to creating commission pieces.

 

 

 

“Ribbon” by Tom Rubin

 

 

Tom’s wife, Helene, is his muse and he adds a touch of yellow to every artwork to signify their bond. Tom was born in Gloversville, NY and raised in the Bronx.  He attended the High School of Music and Art in Manhattan and achieved a Batchelor of Fine Arts from the Maryland Institute Collage of Art, with a minor in Photography.  He worked towards his Master degree in history at Johns Hopkins University.

“Bella Vista” by Carol Moon

 

 

 

 

Have fun tapping into your creative inside!

 

 

 

“Together Forever” by Carol Moon

 

 

 

Carol Moon tells The Rickie Report, ” My mission is to infuse life into every canvas, transcending mere visual representation by infusing vibrant color and emotion with each stroke. Color, to me, is a language capable of narrating stories, inspiring change, connecting hearts, and fostering happiness. The techniques I use illuminate the simple moments of life creating tangible, visual narratives, aiming not only to captivate the eye but to stir the soul and inspire the viewer. My goal is to brighten the world with beauty, nurturing a shared appreciation for the richness that life offers”.  Guided by her parents from childhood,  Carol developed an appreciation for God’s creation—the intricacies of a flower, the brilliance of a sunset, the serenity of a white sandy beach, the playful breeze in a tall field, and the majestic presence of the ocean. These daily treasures, abundant in colors and contrast, deeply resonate with her heart.

 

 

 

 

“I believe that at the core of what art can achieve is the profound connection and intersection between the artist, the artwork, and the viewer. It’s not just about the tools and canvas; it’s about the shared narratives, the connections forged, and the joy found in every stroke”.

 

 

 

 

“Funky Flamingos” by Carol Moon

 

 

 

 

 

Carol’s artistic journey has taken her through many studios, exhibitions, and events as she’s welcomed the opportunity to develop and showcase her work. She’s participated in prestigious events (Art Prize of Grand Rapids, MI). While living in Nashville, she was selected to be a monthly participant in the Germantown Art Crawl and the Franklin Art Crawl in Franklin, TN. Her work has been on display at The Art Show Brentwood Academy in Brentwood, TN, and the Juno Beach Art Festival in Juno Beach, in addition to interior decor centers and various other exhibitions and venues. Her pieces have not only found their way into countless homes across the country, but have also attracted collectors and inspired many commissioned pieces. She continues to be featured and sought out for interviews as well, most recently for feature articles in both Shoutout Miami and 123Art Magazine’s online publications.

 

 

 

 

 

Recently Carol added to her creative base an Art Therapy Certification. She has a background in psychology, and experienced her mother’s 15-year progressive Alzheimer’s Disease. These things have lead her to an interest in helping those who feel locked inside, for whatever the reason, experience freedom through artistic expression. She’s excited to see where this could lead.

 

 

 

 

 

“Manny & Tee” by Carol Moon

 

“I believe so much of creating art is about the story. Sure, my story of how a given piece comes to be. But, it’s also about the viewer’s story, what they experience in the presence of my work is so important to me. It brings me so much joy when our stories come together, and I believe that’s what art can do.

 

 

Carol is a self-taught artist, inspired by color, God’s creation, and a profound bond with her mother. She creates vibrant works celebrating the simple things in life. Carol believes that color has the power to connect hearts and lives, enriching the human experience. Two decades in a West Michigan studio group provided mentoring, exposure, and involvement in ArtPrize of Grand Rapids. Relocating to Nashville in 2012, she joined an artist group under an internationally known mentor and Florida welcomed Carol Moon Art LLC to Zero Empty Spaces Studios. She has been featured in Shoutout Miami and 123Art Magazine, exhibiting at Residence Inn, West Elm, and  “Whimsy & Wonder” at the Cultural Council for Palm Beach County, highlight her achievements. Carol has been a featured artist at Zero Empty Studios in Palm Beach Gardens, FL, is a member of the Artists of Palm Beach County and the Cultural Council for Palm Beach County and continually looks for ways to connect with her fellow creatives and contribute to the larger Palm Beach County artistic community.

 

 

 

Her journey continues, resonating with viewers, social media followers, and collectors who appreciate the uniqueness of her artistic expression.

Hand made Vase by Cathleen Sullivan 

 

 

Cathleen tells The Rickie Report, “I’ve been engaged in art my entire life, but it wasn’t until 2003 that pottery found me. Clay satisfied my need to build sculptural forms and experiment with glaze chemistry. With my children in school, I could be found at every open studio, later constructing my home studio and teaching. After an art immersion trip to Italy with the International Ceramics Arts Network, I realized I needed to learn the history and language of art.  As I studied art history, new mediums, my creative process expanded and catapulted my art into new directions.  In 2020 our family relocated to PSL, Florida, and I was stunned to learn there were no local art studios in PSL!” 

 

 

 

 

Cathleen Sullivan (Far left) with Two Students

 

 

 

A self-starter, it gave her the impetus to create Treasure Coast Pottery because she wanted art to be accessible to every resident who lives in PSL.  “I own, teach and manage the studio. I am a member of the St. Lucie Cultural Alliance, member of the St. Lucie Chamber of Commerce and on the PSL Public Art Advisory Board”. To see more of her artwork that encompasses many forms and mediums, please visit her personal website:  www.sullieart.com.

 

 

Meet  Rob   Buller

 

 

 

Tea Pot, Plates, Cups and Saucers created by Rob Buller

 

 

 

Rob Buller is a semi-retired art teacher who recently relocated to PSL from North Carolina.  He began taking pottery classes at Broward Community College and considers himself lucky that his first pottery teacher, Joe Molinaro, inspired him to pursue ceramics as a career and lifestyle.  Rob went on to complete his degrees at BCC (AA ’86), Florida Atlantic University (BFA ’88), and Southern Illinois University at Carbondale (MFA ’92).  

 

 

 

 

Wheel Class with  Rob Buller (middle, seated)

 

Rob served as an apprentice for a master potter in Japan, made his living throwing pots on production lines for pottery manufacturers, and co-operated a small wholesale pottery business that serviced over 200 retail accounts in 26 states and Canada.  Rob has been exhibiting his art vases locally and nationally over the past fifteen years, and he is a member of Treasure Coast Pottery. 

 

 

 

 

What’s  the  difference  between

Wheel  Throwing  and  Hand-Building?

 

 

 

Wheel Throwing Evening Classes:

 

 

~ TCP  offers  Wheel  “Try It”  classes  and  6-week  classes ~

 

 

Pottery Wheel classes are for ages 13 plus and students create ware on a pottery wheel, a piece of equipment.

 

 

 

 

 

  • 6-Week Wheel Classes meet once a week for 3 hours of instruction and a 3-hour open studio so students may take full advantage of the studio to hone skills learned during instruction for a total of 36 hours of time at the studio!

  • “Try It” classes meet for a 1 ½ hours of fun instruction to get a feel for working on the potter’s wheel!

 

  • Students come away with two pieces that they created and we take up to 8 students (privates and parties also available!)

 

 

 

 

Hand Building Evening Classes:

 

 

 

~  TCP  offers  one-time  classes  as  well  as  6-week  classes ~

 

 

 

  • Hand-building classes are for ages 7 and up, with good success rate. Students learn how to use a slab roller, coil clay, weave with clay, extrude with clay…the list goes on! Possibilities are endless from sculpture, functional, whimsy & decorative. 

 

 

  • 6-Week Hand-Building Classes meet once a week for 3 hours of instruction and 3-hours of open studio so students may take full advantage of the studio to hone skills learned during instruction for a total of 36 hours of time at the studio! This class is project oriented. Students create for the first 5 weeks with intermittent glazing as work moves through the kiln with the last week students concentrating on glazing their work.

 

 

  • One-Time clay building classes meet for 2-3 hours depending on the build. Staff glazes pieces and students choose the color glaze.

 

 

Home School Opportunities

 

 

Homeschooler classes meet for 3 straight weeks and build 3 projects, then they take a week off to allow work to thoroughly dry and get bisque fired, and return the 5th week to glaze and paint their work.
