Oil painting workshop

September 11, 2013 by Jennifer Retter

Event Date: 
Fri, 09/20/2013 - 9:00am - Sun, 09/22/2013 - 5:00pm

The Weatherford Art Association will host a Workshop In Oils with Western Impressionistic Artist Mia DeLode on from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. from Sept. 20-2 at the Firehouse Gallery, 119 Palo Pinto, Weatherford. Participants will learn drawing, composition and color selections and may opt for two or three days in the workshop. The cost is $75 per day. Participants are responsible for their own materials.

Mia DeLode is a fourth generation rancher from central Montana. Born and bred to be part of the rural west, she is an accomplished painter, sculptor, and writer of the culture, animals, people and the humor that is unique to western living. Her paintings appear in many shows and her writing has been featured in Crazy Woman Creek published by Mariner Books, a three part anthology of western women. She was given special recognition by the Montana Great Falls Historical Museum for her work titled '1890's First Responders' featuring the last working team of fire horses in the United States. Her oil paintings are bold in color and texture using thin glazes, heavy brushstrokes and palette knife. Mia's paintings evoke the emotion of the time and place and her outlook is best in her own words.

The deadline for registration is Sept. 16. Make all payments to WAA or you may use a credit card through Pay Pal on the WAA website (www.weatherfordart.com) by clicking “make a payment”. Contact John Stout (VP of workshops) at 817-597-9282 for more information.
