Sherrie McGraw
Painting Still Life & Portrait

Ideally, the role of a teacher is to help the student see the world as shapes, value and color relationships through the language of brushstrokes. The most valuable gift a teacher gives a student is a way of thinking and understanding. Unless you prefer the odds of “a monkey at the typewriter” when figuring out painting problems, then understanding how the language of paint works is necessary in order to truly becomes a good painter.

Located on historic Ledoux Street in downtown Taos, the E.L. Blumenschein Home and Museum is maintained much as it was when the artist and his family were alive. Blumenschein was a founding member of the Taos Society of Artists. Founded in 1915. The society was formed to promote the artists’ work through annually organized traveling exhibitions to several major American cities. Not only did it bring the Society recognition it was the start of the Artist Colony you see in Taos today. The workshops will take place in the studio of E. L Blumenschein.
Class size limited. Call today to reserve your spot.
