Kitchen Inspiration Still-Life online class through Winslow Art Center
January 11-February 1, Thursdays,
9:30AM-12PM Pacific Time, 12:30-3PM Eastern Time, 5:30-8PM London
'Using the kitchen as inspiration, join British painter Michael Weller for this 4-week class painting from life at home. The kitchen has inspired many artists, including British painters John Bratby and Jean Cooke, who once tenderly painted a shopping bag on a table.
'Michael will guide you in this exploration of capturing the everyday as subject matter, from starting with the selection of the composition and addressing the management of relative sizes, to showing how to deal with lights and darks. It’s less about the finished painting and more about discovering different ways of working. More fun than that sounds, discover that it’s also about enjoying the painting process. The hope is that by the end of this exploration the students’ work will still be their own, but their drawing will be stronger and their use of colors clearer. Class will include in-depth critiques of student work and instructor demonstrations.'

Mottisfont And Abstraction
27 and 28 November, 2023. 10 – 4 each day
£215/2 days including entry to Mottisfont Abbey, House and grounds.
Join Michael Weller, exploring the gardens, grounds and vistas at Mottisfont Abbey. His relaxed, encouraging approach can be life-changing and is always fun. Past students say so.
'I went through a big abstract phase at art college, then a teacher pointed out it was possible to have abstract relationships in a figurative painting. I still find abstraction a good way into a painting. We’ll talk about that. I’d like us to try a few things I find helpful in my own oil painting, see what happens, and enjoy the paint.'
Day one will be at Mottisfont, day two in the Mottisfont Village Hall.
There is a cafe on site for the first day. On day two a warm light lunch, tea and coffee will be available.

Andalucia with Michael Weller NEAC, 17-25 February 2024
Take a break from February in Britain with this week-long artists’ retreat at Casa Rosa in southern Spain.
Michael Weller will guide you through his approach to abstraction. This is for artists who’d like some help exploring landscape painting in peace and quiet and the early Spanish sun.
You start each day by trying a few compositions – responding intuitively to what seems interesting – line drawings, colour studies. Later you’ll work more slowly, having found the compositions you really want to paint.
Michael will give demos and go round to talk to students one-to-one. Some experience of drawing is helpful but all levels are welcome. Help will be given.

Looking forward to teaching a painting workshop

"In the morning Michael will do two short demos. Then students will make quick sketches, trying a few views before deciding on a composition they want to paint in the afternoon. Michael will help everyone set up and go round and talk to the students one to one throughout the day. It will be interesting and fun."
Some experience of drawing helps but all levels welcome. Help will be given.
