Discover a New Way of Seeing Color! 

4-Day Landscape Painting Workshop

with Camille Przewodek  Painting by Camille Przewodek

 

Monday – Thursday

July 24th – July 27th

This plein air painting workshop will take place outdoors

at various scenic locations in Easton, and Cambridge.

  The group will meet at 8 a.m. on the first day of class at the

Dorchester Center for the Arts

321 High Street

Cambridge, MD 21613 

410-228-7782

“Good color, or color that expresses the light key of nature,

can make even the most mundane subject matter strikingly beautiful.

  I see a remarkable change in my students’ work after only one day of painting. 

They begin to see color in the shadows. 

Many students say they have discovered a

world of color that has changed them forever——their vision has been altered,” says Camille Przewodek.

 

  Camille will be doing demos throughout the workshop. 

You will do a color study before lunch, followed by one

or two color studies in the afternoon. 

You are encouraged to bring either original artwork or photos

and to talk with Camille about your vision as an artist.

For more information, visit Camille’s website at www.przewodek.com.

 DCA News and Reminders:

DSCN1622  Art Camp Angels

At the recent Guest Artist Gala, a fundraiser for DCA,

the live auction included an opportunity to send a child to art camp at DCA.

  Thanks to the generosity of these community friends,

26 children will be able to attend a week-long enrichment program.

  Numerous studies have shown that the arts not only enrich lives,

communities and culture, but they are vital to a child’s education.

Additional contributions to the Art Camp Angel fund are being sought to expand

access to the arts this summer for more area families.
