The goal of this workshop is to help students think for themselves and develop their own style preference while learning to apply principles and elements useful for all subjects they paint.

REGISTER NOW

Students will be taught everything from impressionistic work to realism.

 

This will be more than a follow along painting session.

 

 

In this workshop, students will learn:

How to take photos of the ocean and choose the right image to paint their strong points and what weaknesses to work on in the future

What color mixtures and techniques to use when painting water

Students will find their own strengths and weaknesses while developing a style of their own.

The workshop will concentrate on applying knowledge that will strengthen the skill of each student.

The instructor’s goal is for the students to paint for themselves, learning to think and apply learned knowledge to their own work.

THIRD: When the lesson goes live:

I’ll be prepared in my studio to demonstrate any number of things from how to start a painting from a blank canvas, to showing you how to effectively use different size and shaped brushes, and how to achieve many different effects whether you are working in acrylics or oils.

I also use Photoshop as a teaching tool, and will have your work already uploaded to work on.

“Blue Like Jazz” by Lois Perdue

 

 

 

 

Learn how to create your own bold, vibrant abstracts in Lois Perdue’s Bigger (a little bit), Faster, Looser Abstract Painting Workshop.

 

 

 

 

“Easy Like Sunday Morning” by Lois Perdue

 

“As a teaching tool, students will be provided with an array of carefully selected mini magazine clips based on color and composition,” said Lois. “This guides them to begin to create some of their own beautiful unique abstract designs.” 

 

 

 

 

The technique Lois uses to achieve beautiful abstract designs is the same one she uses in her popular mini abstract workshops!

Many of her students have asked to paint a bit larger and a little bit looser in her workshops.

 

 

“Ocean Fetish” by Lois Perdue

Lois tells the Rickie Report:

 

“I am bumping up the canvas size this time so students will be working on 11 x 14 formats rather than the usual mini 5 x 7 sizes,” she said.  “I’ll continue to use the same techniques that have worked so successfully for me for a number of years-using the mini 5 x 7 magazine clips for inspiration as it allows me to better visualize the design. Starting with this mini technique is not intimidating even for new abstract artists and allows them a place to start so they are not just staring at a blank canvas”, said Lois. “ Some of my returning students will build upon their techniques and experiment with paints, inks and collage (or bring old failed paintings) to create some of their own organic abstract artwork in this new looser, bigger workshop.” 

In the workshop Lois will begin on the 11 x 14 canvas with the first layers of watercolor paints, acrylics/inks, stencils and mark making to create a foundation. Then she said it would be “sealed “and many more layers would be applied to create depth. 

 A supply list will be provided upon registering. 

(Although Lois paints on watercolor paper, canvas and wood panel, she prefers the magic of a plastic paper called Yupo. It has a slick surface unlike the more absorbent watercolorcolor paper; when Yupo meets water media the colors virtually explode. She begins all her first layers with watercolor paints/inks, powdered watercolor pigments, glazes and markings to establish a ‘busy” foundation and then proceeds to acrylic paints/inks charcoal, pen for marking and collage.  She holds the first layers with polymer medium or varnish so the paint doesn’t “move”! and then begins to apply subsequent layers. Many of Lois’ finished paintings on Yupo have between 10 to 15 layers, each layer has been “set” with varnish to hold the colors. To see some of her work please visit her website at:  www.loisperdue.com)

Lois realized how much of an impact using the “small formats” technique made in her own artwork practice. Soon she began receiving awards and recognition in national, state and local competitions with her larger format works. 

In addition to the recognition, she got another bonus: Students wanted to learn how to paint abstract design techniques-from her!   She was asked to teach —something she loves to do—and for the past several years has been teaching these concepts to local students at ArtServe in Fort Lauderdale and elsewhere at venues throughout the local area upon request!

Classes are filled with returning students who just want to “change up” their art style and artists who just want to bring some “zing” to their style through abstract art techniques. 

 

About Lois

After working in other creative fields, I discovered a passion for Abstract painting. Although I had briefly studied oil painting, sculpting and weaving, entering that first abstract class was just the beginning of an amazing journey for me. Here I could use my energy, spontaneity and vision.  I could paint where nothing is ever “wrong” and there are no “rules”. I use fantasies, feelings and my imagination combined with colors, shapes, materials, concepts and designs to create my own way of expressing myself through Abstract Art.

Lois, who has lived in South Florida her entire life, has been recognized in National, State and Local juried art competitions. Her vibrant, abstract expressionist paintings have won many awards. Lois regularly takes workshop classes with Nationally recognized artists who provide their expertise and enthusiasm for her to continue her passion for painting!

Lois is an active member of a number of business and art-related Local, State and National art organizations including the International Society of Experimental Artists, Florida Watercolor Society, Gold Coast Watercolor Society, Weston, Plantation, Broward Art Guilds. Davie-Cooper City Chamber of Commerce, Women’s Executive Club and National League of American Pen Women, Fort Lauderdale Branch where she serves as first vice president and program chair.

561.324.8944    www.haydeeullfigartstudio.com

 

 

 

Haydee tells The Rickie Report, “My style of teaching is to encourage confidence, self-expression and individuality while adventuring into the basics of art and developing the student’s power of observation and decision making.  Classes are kept small offering more individual attention to each student. Along with relaxing and having fun, creating a beautiful painting will increase confidence and self-esteem as well as the freedom to think flexibly and solve problems. This is especially important for the healthy development of any child as well as a stress release for any adult”. Inside the studio itself the depth of her talent is evident in her work exhibited on the walls; expressions of her powerful artistic statement reflecting her unique vision. Some classes, weather permitting, will be taught outside in the garden.  

 

 

 

 

 Fine Artist, Haydee Ullfig

 

 

Haydee emigrated with her family from Argentina to Chicago as a young child. While in primary school she already showed a strong natural aptitude for art. Haydee continued studying art through High School in Chicago, IL and was awarded a scholarship for classes at the Art Institute of Chicago. She graduated with a major in Fine Arts in 1972 from William Rainey Harper College, Palatine, IL.  Her subsequent degree in Business Administration from the University of Miami, has strengthened her entrepreneurial spirit. Her creativity, versatility and professionalism is reflected not only through her fine art paintings, but in various projects such as children’s book illustrations, commissioned art for interior designers, commissioned portraits and murals. 

 

 

HAYDEE’S VISION: TEACHING OUR CHILDREN CREATIVITY FOR A BETTER WORLD

If you can imagine it, You can achieve it. If you can achieve it, You can become it. –  William Arthur Ward

 

 

 

Haydee says, “Teaching children art, or more specifically creativity, is not only for teaching them to become our future fine artists. Teaching children creativity means teaching them observation and divergent thinking.  Divergent thinking is a thought process or method used to generate creative ideas by exploring many possible solutions.  With divergent thinking children learn to go beyond the mundane towards originality, inventiveness, inside-out thinking, resourcefulness and productivity”.

She continues, “Our world needs these future creative visionaries…..and who knows….they may become the next “Einstein or Jane Goodall” that will save our environment”.  Will they become the next researchers that will allow us to continue living quality and healthy lives in this wonderful world?  They may become our future artists who will l sustain our hope in the future, enhance our world with beauty, and keep our eyes open so that we may conscious of our actions”.

 

 

 

 

“Claire De Lune” by Haydee Ullfig

 

 

 

Haydee’s commitment to give back to the community is  exemplified by her volunteerism creating art for various benefits and non-profit events throughout Palm Beach County, including the Hobe Sound Mural Project, Art in the Alley, and a large mural at Big Dog Ranch Rescue, Wellington, FL, to name a few. Her extensive travels throughout Europe and South America, visiting cultural and artistic centers, her keen observation of the world around her, her love of children, animals and nature, as well as her capacity to see “outside the box” continue to enhance her creative development.  She considers herself an “artist in transition” with her best work still to be created.

 

 

 

WHERE    ART    MEETS    POSSIBILITIES:

 

 

 

 

ADULT      CLASSES:

 

 

 

As an artist and art educator, Haydee Ullfig knows that it’s never too late to get into art or even to re-invent your creative talents. Our classes designed for adults will guide you through the techniques and principles of various fine art and craft mediums. Class sizes are limited, which ensures you’ll be receiving plenty of individualized guidance from the instructor.  

 

 

 

 

 

“Ride A Wild Horse” by Haydee Ullfig

 

 

 

Painting

Probably the first thing that comes to mind when one thinks of fine arts, painting is a wonderful gateway into the expansive world of art.  We offer lessons in acrylic, watercolor, gouache and mixed media. Our lessons focus on color mixing, brush technique, composition and theory, but we make sure to emphasize in self-expression.

Drawing

If you want to start with a basis before starting painting, drawing fundamentals including observational drawing is what you need.  Who knows, you may just decide to focus only on drawing which is an art in itself.   Our lessons emphasize on seeing, using right-brain techniques, line contours, shading and perspective. Lessons available in a wide array of drawing materials; learn to draw in charcoal, pencil (graphite and colored), pastels, oil pastels, pen and ink.

Other Creative Expressions                                                                                                

Other media specific classes may be added to our schedule, such as mosaics and sculpture and these will be posted on our website.

Born in the Republic of Panama to Chinese parents, MaiYap has been able to magically blend East and West on canvas. Within the walls of her parent’s home, she was immersed in the beauty, balance and perfection of millennial traditions passed on from one generation to another. Once outside these walls, her senses were overcome by the amazing colors, sounds and energy of the Tropics.

 

 

“Happy For You” by MaiYap

 

 

She tells The Rickie Report, “Panama provided a bustling backdrop of exciting people, places, and music. Most importantly, its natural surroundings provided the perfect artistic inspiration to imagine and create my magnificent flowers and unique landscapes. It also gave me the courage to voice my concerns and fears about our planet’s welfare through my powerful environmental abstracts”.

 

 

“Boat at Dawn” by MaiYap

 

 

MaiYap asks herself: “Who am I? Where am I going? How can I help the most”?

She says, “The constant search for my true identity, my place in the world and the struggle to preserve our planet are at the heart of all my art pursuits. Painting very detailed and colorful flowers has helped me to reconcile my Chinese background with the vibrant Panamanian world. The wish to anchor myself in this rapid ever-changing world drove me to study the subject of impermanence while depicting the passing clouds and difficult atmospheres. Through the practice of mindfulness meditation I continue to grow while trying to make sense of it all.  My environmental abstracts are the answer to one of my deepest concerns and where life inquiry continues to thrive”.

 

 

“Anecdote of an Inquisitive Mind” by MaiYap

 

 

MaiYap has been interviewed recently:

VoyageMiami

Art Hive Magazine

 

 

MaiYap has exhibited at over 100 International Art Fairs including: Beijing and Shanghai, China, Morocco, Korea, Colombia, and Panama.  She has also exhibited nationally in museums, universities and galleries.  Her artwork can be seen at “ELEMENTS OF ART” (Pinecrest Gardens, Miami, FL), FLOW – GALLERYone at DoubleTree Suites Hotel, Fort Lauderdale, FL, and  MUJERES DE FUEGO – Galería Juan Manuel Cedeño, Panama, Panama.  She will be exhibiting at  Plastic Art Fair – Seoul, KOREA

Currently one of 40 local artists displaying at Artisans on the Ave, Betty has been with this eclectic gallery for over five years. She sees the gallery as a great venue for exposing art lovers to the amazing variety of local talent. Most recently, the gallery has been having workshops and presentations by several of its artists. Betty is also the owner of The Craft Gallery on Dixie Highway in West Palm Beach. There Betty is able to explore her love of clay and glass and share her knowledge with others. The Craft Gallery offers workshops and classes by a variety of artists and has studio space available for rent by the hour. Betty loves to have local artists share their passion and expertise with others, so her gallery is a great place to expand one’s artistic skills.

 

 

 

But, it’s Betty’s history that will give you an idea of just how much of a fixture she is in the local art world. Decades ago Betty had a hand-painted clothing line named “Made Ugly by Me!” – yes, she has a terrific sense of humor! Her next exploration was clay and this self-taught artist worked with other artists to develop her own unique style. From there she ventured into ceramics, fused glass and encaustic wax, taking workshops from masters of the various crafts. Betty eventually displayed in juried art shows, created art in public places and had a presence in local art galleries. Soon she started her own gallery which grew into several businesses over the years, allowing her to spread the joy of beautiful art. President of the Ceramic League of the Palm Beaches, she also serves on local boards and arts councils.

 

 

When you talk to Betty about her craft, she sees her fused glass art as an extension of her sculptural clay work. Betty says she loves the textures and exciting interplay of light and color when she peeks into the red-hot, glowing kiln. There she sees the soft, molten liquid melting together in one brilliant form. Her biggest thrill is 15 hours later, when she opens the kiln to see the fascinating and extraordinary design that has taken place. Mixing layers of hand-cut, transparent, opaque and iridescent glass together with a little copper, her designs are truly one-of-a-kind. Betty’s fused glass faces give off so much energy that people say they make them smile.

 

 

Betty says her work is never about clay or glass. It’s about what the media can do for her art and what she is trying to express. She hopes that others are filled with the joyful light and energy that her art creates. In short, Betty is the light behind her art and she is all about spreading the light – and joy – to everyone around her.

About the Workshop

 

Lois Perdue tells The Rickie Report, “This class is even for those artists who have never attempted to paint in an abstract style before. With my guidance and the easy-to-explore, non-intimidating mini-format, even those who have only worked in a realistic style can paint an abstract painting! For those who have taken my mini-abstract workshops before and want to explore larger formats, please “go for it” in this workshop.

 

Expect to go home with at least ½ dozen 5 x 7 mini abstract paintings-ready to frame!! But this class though isn’t just about abstract painting:

“It’s about learning texturing techniques, building layers of glazes and paints to create dimensions and how to use your own failed paintings as collage to make your paintings sizzle!

"La Bel Canto" by Carla Golembe

“La Bel Canto” by Carla Golembe

 

 

Carla tells The Rickie Report, “Several months ago I began experimenting with Intuitive Painting, a process that involves putting down a lot of layers of color and mark making without planning or intention.  With the intuitive approach the artist basically goes on gut instinct, allowing colors, marks and, eventually, images to emerge.  Up until then my approach had been very planned out, creating several sketches until I got my composition exactly as I wanted it, planning the palette of each painting, though allowing the painting to change as it progressed.  I was beginning to feel stuck with my process and feeling low on ideas and intuitive painting seemed like a good way to move forward”.

 

"Celestial Bodies" by Carla Golembe

“Celestial Bodies” by Carla Golembe

 

 

“At first I was disoriented and kind of shocked by the approach and what was emerging on my canvas.  To be sure, this kind of play with paint was a lot of fun, but was this ME?  How was I going to reconcile these random marks with my carefully constructed, though whimsical and stylized, paintings”?

 

 

" Devi" by Carla Golembe

” Devi” by Carla Golembe

 

“Then my inner muse took over.  By that I mean, the core of who I am as an artist.  The mark making became multilayered underpainting, a freer and more complex type of underpainting than what I had worked with before. Once I built up very rich complex layers of colors I sketched my figures on top of these backgrounds with chalk.  Some canvases suggested their ideas to me while other pieces came from images I wanted to explore”.

 

"Mari" by Carla Golembe

“Mari di Sogni” by Carla Golembe

 

 

“Once my figures were in place I began to work with the interplay of image and background, under layers and over layers, taking away and adding in.  In the paintings I’ve balanced the structure and figures that I love with the spontaneity of creating marks with tools other than brushes and allowing the backgrounds to evolve around the figures. Birds, plants and other forms from nature continue to play a large part in the imagery. I’ve started using more glazing technique to create depth and richness”.

 

 

"Skyward" by Carla Golembe

“Skyward” by Carla Golembe

She explains, “My new process is a blend of intention and intuition.  It’s not a radical change, just a way to move forward and have more fun.  I’ve fallen in love with painting all over again.  I continue to paint beauty, joy and harmony because that is what I want to put out to the world”.
