Grand Tour 2017

It’s Grand Tour Time!

Did you Know? Krista sent me an announcement: Wednesday, August 6, UCSD, Master Class by Kathryn Macaulay: Menopause and the Hormone Replacement Therapy. It’s fun to be known, but I really think I’d better stay with art!!!

So what’s really happening? We leave Saturday for what I plan to be the last Grand Tour. We have big workshops in White Bear Lake, MN and in Ann Arbor, both are full with a waiting list but there is still space at Dillman’s at Lac du Flambeau, WI.  http://www.dillmans.com/dcaf/ I’ve loved being at each of these. If you want to join either of the first two, get your entry in. Go to www.pocketsketching.com/scheadule/2017.

After this, it’s all new (and on the schedule). In October we’ll be in Chester Springs, PA at the Chester Springs Studio (SE of Philadelphia, near Chadds Ford), then at the Wallkill River School In Montgomery, New York (on the Hudson River, N. of New York City). And at the end of October we’re all the way down at Edisto Art Retreats on Edisto Island, SC which is S. of Charleston. This is on the Atlantic. I’m still trying to get something near Baltimore.

November swings west with Hill Country Arts Foundation in Ingram, TX. This is the famed Hill Country of Texas, NE of San Antonio. Then we do a “Home Workshop” in San Antonio at Kari Sprotbery’s (really is related to Dale, aka Sherpa, known on the phone sometimes, errantly, as “Mr. Macaulay”.) There may be one more before we get back to Tucson for a workshop at Tohono Chul Park in December. Would you believe it, I’m working on 2018!

Enough of our ventures. Here is a fun example of your work with comment by Louise Sackett: (louisesackettfineart.com) 
Kath Macaulay’s systems works. I never would have believed that you could be invisible to passersby when sketching, but, yes, you can.  There must have been between 300 to 500 people walking about, as I sketched this little piece. Nobody bothered me, stopped, exclaimed or otherwise caused a kerfuffle. It really works! Go Kath!

The monochrome is by me at the Wednesday night weekly performance of the Tucson Jazz Institute at the Viscount Hotel. Sketching the band members makes it very easy to doubly enjoy the terrific music. This is Nathan, the drummer who graduated.

This is unusual, but watch for two more blogs soon with sketching tips and student examples.
