About the Instructor:

As an oil painter with a literary background, Pamela Tatum says she is most interested in storytelling on canvas and expressing the feelings and emotions she has about her subjects. When she paint lovers in a city scene, for example, she wants to express romantic passion and the exciting, frenetic energy of Times Square or the dreamy, amorous energy of Paris. In her seascapes, she may try to capture the tranquility of a solitary boat or the carefree feeling of childhood bliss. According to Tatum, “I want the way I feel about a subject to affect the viewer. Whether I am painting a city scene, a nature scene, a whimsical umbrella girl, or a portrait, it’s always about capturing the story through the emotions."

In 2012 Tatum began painting with a palette knife, using a lot of paint, bold colors and expressive knife strokes to create fun, textured, very modern pieces. She began her lovers under umbrella paintings which have evolved into multiple series of paintings in various cities. According to Hyder Gallery owner, Andrew Hyder, Tatum’s work “blends impressionism and expressionism into something entirely her own as she brings to life beauty and emotion.” Her patrons describe her work as moving them to remember events in their own lives and being expressive and fun, showing motion and emotion. And this is exactly why she says that she must paint, "to express myself and bring a little more magic into the world."

Tatum has won many awards for her work and is in collections in the U.S., Canada, and across the pond.

Magic is in the air this October as Alexandrea invites you to a night of manifestation! Come brew your magic by carefully concocting a recipe of your deepest desires.

Conjure your power of manifestation using crystals, breathing techniques, visualization and energy work.

Crystals will be provided for use and to take home! Please bring a yoga mat, meditation pillow or blanket for your own comfort.

About the Instructor:

Alexandrea Lightfoot works with people who want to know their true life purpose, people who need help remembering what’s important and need reminding of how amazing they are. She’s been re-connecting people with their self-love and self-awareness for 20 years, from inspiring the inner heart with song or deep, loving therapeutic conversations. As an intuitive reader, life coach, medium and meditation coach, this former Jersey girl and New Yorker traded the glitter of the Great White Way for the sacred sites of Ormond Beach, Florida. Today, her office overlooks the ancient and serene Tomoka River. With a Bachelor’s of Fine Arts degree from the NYU Tisch School of the Arts and having studied under venerated meditation teacher and best-selling author of The Power of Intention, Dr. Wayne Dyer, she now co-owns and operates Platinum Health, Fitness & Yoga with her husband, where she challenges you to begin living life in the highest consciousness, incorporating scientific fact, faith, creativity, human connection, and inner truth. When she’s not helping people raise the frequency of the human condition, she can be found reading the Harry Potter series in her backyard hammock, rocking out every high note in Celine Dion’s Power of Love album, meditating surrounded by her collection of too many (yet never enough) stones and crystals, or eating Southern buttermilk fried chicken from her neighborhood bistro. Are you finally ready to shed the illusions of fear, confusion, and inaction? Want to know more about how you can discover your true, sacred self?

Time: 10:30am-3:30pm

Let Bill Shoemaker show you how easy using an “Icarus Board” can be. This heated work surface is used to blend colors in your artwork. We will be using "Prismacolor Premier" colored pencils or another type of soft pencil to smooth out colors effortlessly. Our surface for this project will be Strathmore #300 Series Bristol Paper or Stonehenge Paper. Since you're advanced in this medium, please bring a finished linear drawing or ready to transfer image that is on the surfaces described above. In this class you will learn how to layer, blend, lift, and burnish the colors to give that "Finished Look". In the morning we will finalize drawings onto the proper surface and then we will take turns using the "Icarus Board" to complete the artwork.

Students are responsible for bringing their own Prismacolor Premier pencils to the workshop in the colors they will need for their chosen image. Some additional pencils will be available in the classroom.

All students must be at least 18 years of age to register.
