O & S is a magazine featuring artists and poets, beautifully designed by Didi Menendez, I'm very pleased to say that I'm in the latest issue, right next to an article on Mario Robinson whose work I admire very much. In fact, O & S is full of good art and poetry, and the exceptional design alone is a visual treat. You can now view the publication online here, and soon you will be able to buy it at selected newsstands and bookstores.

10 a.m. to 2 p.m. with a lunch break
$100 members/ $125 non-members
Although slavish copying from photos is discouraged by most well-known portrait and figurative artists working today, many of these same artists use photographic references in the process of creating exceptional work. Through power-point presentation we will look at many examples of art painted from life and at least partially from photos. We will compare and evaluate a variety of reference photographs and discuss the pros and cons of different kinds of lighting. We will also have time for hands-on experimentation as we practice taking our own photographic reference shots. Participants are encouraged to bring a digital camera with cable attachment or card-reader, and a laptop computer.
Lunch is not provided so please bring your own lunch and snacks.
