August 15 -19, 2016
9 am to 5 pm each day
Learn to do your own Lazure painting while transforming a new gallery space. Lazure is layers of paint prepared nearly as thin and transparent as watercolor, consisting of water, binder, and pigment. It is applied with a rhythmical movement using large brushes. The final color is achieved using varied colors applied in several layers, over a white surface. Light passes through these thin layers of color and is reflected back, giving a pure color experience. The Lazure method offers a creative and conscientious use of color that provides nourishment for the eye and the soul. No experience in art or painting is necessary. Robert Logsdon is a master Lazure artist recognized for carrying this work from Europe and nurturing its further development in the United States.
