Museum Workshop: Oil Pastel and Oil Stick with Daisy Craddock

Saturday, February 24, 2018

Artist Daisy Craddock shares her insights and enthusiasm for drawing with oil pastels and oil sticks. Create oil pastel studies on the first day and work to achieve a finished drawing on the second day whether from life or a photo. Exercises and demonstration for both beginners and more experienced artists will be given to explore a range of techniques and review the fundamental drawing skills of line, color and value. For more information and to register, please contact Amanda Nicholson at 575-624-6744 x22

Lorene Johnson Gratton, a long-time museum member, bequeathed funding to the RMAC Foundation for annual workshops for adults with professional artists. The workshops are open to both paying students and those with a financial need who require a scholarship to participate. Based on need, students may take the workshop free of charge or pay up to the suggested donation of $125. This year, in conjunction with the exhibition Roswell at 50: Beyond the Gift of Time, former Roswell Artists-in-Residence Daisy Craddock and Clayton Merrell will travel to Roswell to lead two workshops.  The workshops are open to all levels. Some previous drawing and/or painting experience is helpful.
