August 25, 2020 – August 27, 2020
by Professional Artist, Kenneth De Waard
IMPRESSION: the first and immediate effect of an experience or perception upon the mind; sensation. A strong effect produced on the intellect, feelings, and conscience.
DESIGN: to form or conceive in the mind; to intend for a definite purpose.
We will inevitably be chasing the light and seeing beyond what is there, always looking for more. No matter what we are faced with, it all comes down to design. Utilizing and building on what nature gives us but not being a slave to it. It is all about the design and interpretation.
For anyone who is interested in a unique workshop experience please consider joining me at the Gibson House Bed and Breakfast in Haverhill, which is at the gateway to the White Mountains of New Hampshire.
We will have a Meet & Greet the evening of our arrival on Monday August 24th and get to know one another before the workshop begins. This is a small workshop seeing that there are only 8 rooms available at the Gibson House Bed and Breakfast.
Seeing how we will all be staying at the Gibson House we will start each day by having breakfast together at 7:30 before heading out into the field. We will break for lunch, which will be delivered to us provided by the folks at the Gibson House, and then resume until early afternoon. For those of you that are interested we can meet up for dinner and chat about art until the sun goes down. Then get up and do it all over again.
Should he a very enjoyable fun filled few days of art, producing art, talking art, and more art!
For Ken there is nothing more rewarding and challenging than painting under an open sky, surrounded by the scents and sounds of nature, along with it’s ever changing color and harmonies to excite one’s creativity.
After receiving his Bachelor of Arts with honors, Ken began working in a commercial art studio in Chicago. He continued his studies at the American Academy of Art, where he studied with nationally recognized watercolorist, Irving Shapiro. Upon Irving’s recommendation Ken joined the acclaimed Palette and Chisel Academy of Fine Art in Chicago, where he soon began studying with Scott Burdick as well as Dan Gerhartz.
