About This Retreat

One of the most rewarding and artistically nourishing experiences is the Artists' Retreat, offering artists their most valuable resource: TIME. Time to focus solely on art without the constraints of every day life. This is a true residency-style experience – immersion in your work, your artistic self, your creative community. Fran offers support by helping each artist to understand their work and their role as an artist. In this way, the work moves to another level. So often artist focus on the making and fail to reflect on the work to understand the way and the what for.

About This Critique Class

Open to beginners and seasoned artists. Most artists work in isolation without the advantage of receiving feedback on their work. Here is the opportunity to not only hear how your work is "seen and interrupted by the viewer", how to create feeling and power through your images, experiment with challenges, but also how to paint intuitively while staying positive and focused on your passion to paint, and to learn from the critiques of other artists' work.

There is time for 6participating artists to exhibit 2-3 works of art to be critiqued. Artists are asked to bring in “works in progress”.  All observing artists will listen to the critiques but cannot exhibitany works.   If you are unsure that youwant to participate on Friday, why not come to observe and see what it is like.  

Dates, Time & Location

No Summer classes.

We will resume in the fall and meet once a month on the second Friday from 1:30 – 3:30 PM at the Artists' Workshop in New Smyrna Beach, Florida.

About This Exhibition

Beaux Arts of Central Florida is celebrating its 60 Anniversary with this exhibition at the Art League of Daytona Beach.

Beau's mixed media painting "This Could Be My Family" was awarded Third Place by judge Jennifer Coolidge. In her statement, she commented: "I was struck by the humanity of this work with outsider figure reaching out to insider figure with little hope of connection yet the longing for it. The words and letters even if one did not read them become interesting visual elements within the composition. The use of graphite and other drawing mediums are effective in patterns overlayed such as in the hair of the front figure again the veil feeling created over the figure looking out. The use of white creates an important sense of contrast which distinquished the work from a distant view which became more interesting as one walks toward it."

November 20 - December 18, 2022 Art League of Daytona Beach, 433 South Palmetto Avenue, Daytona Beach Fl 32114
