    Mastering the Quickdraw

    with Ken DeWaard

    Polish your Quickdraw skills with an experienced professional. The two hour Quickdraw challenge on Saturday, May 5, does not have to be intimidating. In fact it can be a fun and productive exercise. The workshop will cover strategies to achieve a great Quickdraw painting; a winning “point of view”, simplification through color, compositional design and beauty in the brushwork. 

    Ken has placed and won Quickdraw competitions across the country, include the 2016 Mexico Beach Quickdraw. Do not miss this opportunity to hone your skills. The mini-workshop will provide both group and individual instruction and coaching. 

    Ken is the winner of the Forgotten Coast en Plein Air Artists' Choice award in 2010, 2012 and 2017. 

    Meet at the Lighthouse in George Core Park and Ken will select a painting location from there. There is adequate parking within the park and on Harborview Drive. The workshop, May 4, starting at 9 am. $95 per person, register online.

    Bring a sack lunch or plan to lunch at one of the great cafes in Port St. Joe.
