LITTLE FALLS -- The Great River Arts Association will present a five-day, residential oil painting workshop March 24-28 at its arts center in Little Falls for intermediate or advanced painters who would like to learn new and challenging techniques in oil painting.
Bla Petheo will teach the workshop.
A freelance painter, writer and lecturer since serving as professor of art at St. John's University in Collegeville from 1966 to 1997, Petheo has exhibited, taught and sold his work around the world. Petheo holds a master's degree in art history from the University of Budapest, attended the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna as a Rockefeller Scholar and earned his master of fine arts degree at the University of Chicago.
Daily workshop sessions will run 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and will focus on morning painting demonstrations by Petheo, followed by afternoon sessions that will allow time for each participant to try the techniques discussed.
Each afternoon, Petheo will critique each artist's work individually. Throughout the week, the workshop facility will be made available to participants who want to paint for extended hours.
Because the workshop is intended to be an intense learning experience, it has been designed to be a challenge for even the most advanced painters. However, intermediate painters will find the techniques and instruction unintimidating.
Discount housing is available for students coming from out of town.
Although space for this workshop is limited, there are still spots available with a registration deadline of March 7. Tuition for the entire week of instruction is $250 for members and $280 for non-members. Call the GRAA at (320) 632-0960 for a free registration brochure.
