@ the gorgeous campus of Lewis and Clark College, Portland
(Covid-virus social distancing restrictions permitting)
We welcome back one of our Masterpiece favorite teachers - Steven S. Walker. This three-Day painting workshop features Steven's exquisite talent and his exceptional landscape and plein air skills as he masterfully finesses light and color.
So come hone your skills! Join other landscape air and figurative painters from across the Northwest and the country as we converge on this influential city to art/document some of the historic churches downtown and the beautiful Grotto. And have an incredible time to network with other artists of faith, finesse your skill sets and enjoy incredible camaraderie together.
Plus several of Masterpiece's other one day invitational artist guests will be on site each day, inspiring and making each day even more fun.
Why choose the sacred architecture of Portland as a theme? As patrons and pioneers laid down the gauntlet of architectural and spiritual power with these artistic edifices to bring the grace, dignity and hope of Christianity to this city we salute them with our present gifts. Participating artists will authenticate the splendor and dignity of their spires, bell towers, cupolas, stained glass, ceilings, doors and more in paintings/sculptures, interior and exterior details, and the current rhythms of their congregants in figurative depictions. We artistically salute these grand urban edifices and those who invested with vision well beyond their lifetimes. And in so doing we prompt a new generation to esteem and fill them with authentic worship and sacred power again.
