STAYING SAFE:

Although there is no Meet & Greet due to Covid, each participant will get a gift bag that  includes a mask.  It will also include a free paintbrush or pencil with a 6 foot ribbon.  You'll put that into the ground the first day just so we are ALL clear what 6 feet really look like.  You can paint without your mask within your 6 foot circle.  If anyone wants to enter your circle?  You will both put on a mask.  You must wear a mask to all demo's. We will only do the circle the first day just to give us all an idea of distance....and to keep people painting without a mask safe at all times.

Light Chasers has never been a political group and it never will be.  We are ALL about the paint.  However, we will respect Covid and we will protect painters the best we can throughout!  And of course, I will always have extra hand sanitizer, extra paper towels, and extra masks.  Let us know if you have concerns and we will do our best to deal with them.  Your safety is incredibly important to us.

There are very few spots left and we want to keep this group much smaller than we usually do.  If you want three remarkable days of painting and instruction with one of the world's best?  This is one way we can paint....finally!  AND get great instruction from one of the world's best landscape painters.


Directions for  South Lido Beach:

From 1-75 take exit #210 and go west on Fruitville.  Turn left [south] onto Tamiami Trail [US 41]  Go to the next traffic light and turn right onto John and Mable Ringling Causeway.  Go to St Armond's Circle.  Stay right around the circle and follow the signs to Lido Beach. This is the second turn off after you enter the circle.  Don't stop anywhere along the beach.  Go all the way to the end and enter the parking lot for South Lido Beach.  .  We are parking near the beach side, not the bay side where the rest rooms are..You will find us! 

The Joseph McGurl Sight Size Viewfinder:


If you do not already own one, you can find out about one here: https://www.josephmcgurl.com/page/12018/joseph-mcgurl-sight-size-viewfinder  You do not have to own one to participate....but you probably will want one!  Joe will have them with him at the workshop to try or to purchase.  I can tell you that it speeds up my drawing and helps me with my values....two great tools for painting light that changes every few moments! 

 
 
Wow!  Now that really frames the composition too!  Patty will have the materials list out to you soon....but your own materials will work as well.

This is going to be a WONDERFUL workshop...so if you can go, please give yourself a present that you will treasure forever!

See you there!
Terry
