SLAVA KOROLENKOV - IMPRESSIONIST MASTER Please join us for an amazing opportunity to train with the Impressionist Master Painter, Slava Korolenkov. Slava is from Moscow. He studied at the Moscow State Stoganov Academy of Arts. His work is known worldwide, and he is represented by private collections in Japan, US, Germany, France, and Russia. In 2012, Slava began teaching workshops across the world. You can read more about Slava on his Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/Korolenkov Slava is not only a talented artist, but he is a wonderful person. He is an outstanding art instructor, but more than that, he changes the way people think about art and gives people what they need to explore their own natural talents. Slava teaches artists to paint from the heart, with intense vigor and confidence. This will be Slava's third workshop in Seattle. PAINTING WORKSHOP - FOR ARTISTS - 5/25-5/29 Please join us for this amazing opportunity to work with a master artist who is an absolute joy as an instructor. Slava manages to teach students a great deal about themselves and to reach them on a personal level. This is more than an art instruction class. It is an opportunity to develop your skills, connect with people, and discover the joy that is painting like you never have before. The 5 day painting workshop is suited for every level of artist from beginner to master painter. Slava has a unique way of working with artists from all backgrounds to meet them where they are and to help each person improve their work greatly. The workshop is the caffeine all artists need to push their work to the next level. The workshop is geared toward plein air artists, but every type of painter is welcome. In this workshop, there is something for everyone! We want people to improve their skills in their own comfort zone, but also to try new things. Two days of the workshop will be dedicated to landscape and two days will be dedicated to figurative work (clothed models in landscape). We will paint on in Volunteer Park, a picturesque Evans Creek Preserve and Gasworks Park for capturing urban lanscape. Registration for the art workshop is limited to 15. This workshop always fills up very quickly, so make sure to sign up as soon as possible. A FEW NOTES ABOUT THE WORKSHOP......... -Every day will start with demo wehere Slava will step-by-step explain process and best approach to constructing a painting, tone, composition, brushwork, color value, and the importance of edges. -May is unpredicatable weather in Seattle. Please be prepared to work in the heat, outdoors at the workshop. May is also a rainy season as well, so dress accordingly. Bring a lot of water. -Participants are responsible for bringing their own lunch each day. -Slava is a very easy going and flexible artist. This is what makes his workshops very special. Please expect some changes to itinerary and plans daily as needs arise (weather, model schedule, translator schedule, etc). We will do the best we can to stay on track, but inevitably changes occur. -Three days are designated as landscape painting days and two days will be figurative days. Each day Slava will begin with a demonstration. On the figurative days, Slava will paint a live model (clothed). Artists are always welcome to paint landscape on the days we do figurative work, if that is their preference. The option to train in both is a great asset to this workshop, however. It's always great to work outside of your comfort zone. -Please bring your own art supplies. There are no special paint colors required for the workshop. Oksana will send out a list of the colors Slava uses regularly to those who register. If you do not have plein air supplies, there is no need to purchase special equipment. You can pick up an inexpensive easel to work on or feel free to bring a small table. Slava paints in oils. Students are welcome to use whatever paints they have. Oils may be the best option, given the weather and dry times, but it can be
