It is the new year! 2019, sort of hard to believe. Actually, it is completely unbelievable.
There are few things happening I want to tell you all about. Figure drawing sessions have been going great this year. If it keeps up like this I will have to make more space in my studio. Same great models and a couple of new ones in the line-up, AND I have started giving away door prizes each week. It is super fun. Come on out next week because this week is cancelled due to the really really cold weather we are having.
I have two new classes starting up. Painting with Intention which begins February 4th at 5:30pm. It will run on Monday nights, and is a class that you can continue on with as it is designed to help you build up your artistic practice. Check out my site for details. http://www.roycedeans.com/figuredrawingstudio
The other class is an instructed figure drawing on Thursday nights. I still need a few more participants in this one before I can launch it. Let me know if you are interested. I call this one Learn to Draw the Figure with Royce. It’s going to be a good time.
If there wasn’t enough for me to do, I decided to be the point man on a crazy Pop-Up-Show – Northwest Michigan Regional Salon des Refusés 2019. It is a show for all the artists that did not get juried into the NW MI Regional Exhibition at the Dennos Museum.
It will be this Friday the First at Leelanau Studios – 10781 E. Cherry Bend Road, Traverse City, MI 5:30 to 9 PM. Be there!
I am also starting an email newsletter, and if you are wanting to get the latest news on classes and other cool stuff you can go to my website http://www.roycedeans.com and click the SUBSCRIBE button in the top menu bar.
And last for now but not least is what is happening with the ArtisTTable Art Retreats in 2019. If you are really wanting to bust it out this year and do something super exciting that will most certainly jump start your creativity and artistic direction. You have to go to the ArtisTTable Art Retreat site and get all details on our very special and affordable art adventures to Provence, France for our Following Van Gogh & Cézanne retreat in May. In the very beginning of June we are going to Zwolle, Netherlands to paint the Dutch Landscape. And in September we are heading to Granada, Spain for a very exciting retreat we call, Heart of Granada!
