The next meeting of WAAL is January 14, 2016. Our guest speaker, will be Fred Fochtman, an award winning painter & art restorer working. As a painter Mr. Fochtman works in a representational style & paints exclusively from life. His subjects include landscape, figure, interior & still life. He travels annually to the Atlantic Coast & New England to paint en plein air & is currently teaching a course at the McConnell Art Center. As an art restorer, Mr. Fochtman & his partner have worked nationally for museums, governmental institutions, colleges & universities, art galleries & private collectors.
For our meeting, Fred will lead a dialog relative to painting – how he works through a painting from determining subject, size, composition, editing, palette & the uncontrollable factors of light, weather & time. With respect to restoration, he will demonstrate cleaning a section of a painting & some of the processes involved.
All are welcome to attend a meeting. We hold our meetings on the 2nd Thursday of each month from 7:00-9:00pm at the Griswold Center, 777 High St, Worthington, Ohio 43085
