Fall Art in the Park

Fall Art in the Park will be hosted by Chestatee Artists on Saturday, October 10, 10 am to 5 pm, in Hancock Park, Dahlonega, GA.  Arts and crafts booths will be present for visitors to purchase from a variety of handmade and original products. A community project, painting a Barn Quilt, will be featured on the Pavilion stage. It is hoped that this project will be the first of many Barn Quilts to be painted toward the goal of Lumpkin County having its own Barn Quilt Trail, as exists in other communities. Arts and crafts booths will be spaced for social distancing and everyone is encouraged the wear a face mask. To inspire this CDC suggestion, Chestatee Artists will sponsor a contest during this event for the most CREATIVE MASKS with monetary awards. Anyone wanting to join the competition should arrive wearing their creative mask before 2 pm and check in at the Chestatee Artist tent.

Appalachian Jam bluegrass group will perform in the Park from 2 pm to 5 pm.  For more information or for an artist application (deadline Oct. 1), contact Letty Rayneri, lrayneri@windstream.net.

Paint with Sergio Roffo, Alla Prima Approach

In the morning we will begin with Sergio discussing the aesthetic issues and techniques of art as he demonstrates and completes a field study, encouraging the fellow artists to observe. “Sometimes you learn more by observing and memorizing than actually painting. While I strongly encourage the students to observe my demonstration, they will have to option to paint alongside of me.” After the demonstration students will receive individual personal instruction and encouragement while completing their painting “Alla Prima” (in one sitting). The objective of this three day course is to sensitize the class to the aspects of outdoor painting, including:

* Learning how to see nature’s details
* Understanding the interplay of light and shadow
* Knowing how to mix the right colors
* Eliminating the fear of outdoor painting

Three-Day

Plein-Air Workshop
