In this workshop, you’ll have the opportunity to watch and learn from a painting demonstration by the award-winning North Carolina artist, Jeremy Sams, and then practice what you have just learned. Well known for the oil-like quality of his acrylic paintings, Jeremy will demonstrate how he achieves this look along with composing the elements within the painting and capturing light and atmosphere in the landscape. During the workshop, he will focus on the principles of creating a pleasing composition, how you can achieve color harmony, and how you can capture those special light effects that we’re so often attracted to in landscape paintings. Jeremy’s goal is for you to create a finished painting that encapsulates each of the principles discussed. A materials list

will be provided after registration.

Jeremy Sams is an award winning representational artist residing in North Carolina. Jeremy has been a professional artist for over 20 years and his primary subject matter is landscapes while working in acrylics. He also loves the challenge of portraits and his work varies in size from just a few square inches to murals measuring upward of 40×60 feet! His artistic growth took on a new form in 2011 when he was introduced to painting en plein air. Since then, he was won many awards for his plein air work and has been a featured artist in Plein Air Magazine. Jeremy’s personal inspirations come mostly from the play of light and atmosphere and their effects on objects and landscapes.
