Jean Ulshoefer

Many of you may have seen the obituary for Jean Ulshoefer
in the Star-News Aug 5.  Jean was a longtime, active member
in WAA.  She passed away in Wilmington surrounded by her family.
It was her wish to have a tree planted  in her honor at the Cameron Art Museum. 


She had most recently been a volunteer at the Cameron Art Museum gift shop.

If you would like to contribute to this memorial for Jean please contact
the Cameron Museum.

Location: Hannah Block Community Center, 120 S. 2nd St, Wilmington
To register, contact me at jqgeisel@yahoo.com or 910-371-6160

Course description: In this course you will explore the materials, styles and techniques of oil painting using the still life and photos references as the subject.  Each week I will focus on a concept such as color, values, composition, creating depth in the picture plane and techniques such as brushwork, underpainting, palette knife. I will provide weekly painting demonstrations and give lots of group and individual instruction.

To register, contact Amanda Rhodes at arhodes@cameronartmuseum.com or 910-395-5999x1008

Course description: Values, color and composition are the dynamic elements that make our paintings stand out.  This course will emphasize these elements in the design and development of landscape paintings. In this course, we will also develop a better understanding of the various elements of nature in order to better represent them on canvas and to provide greater confidence in experimentation.  Each week the instructor will give a demonstration of the concepts and provide group and individual instruction. Students will work from their own photos.

One day Workshop on Values

Sunday, October 19, 10:00am – 1:00pm, $60 CAM members, $70 non members
Location: Cameron Art Museum, 3201 S. 17th St, Wilmington
To register, contact Amanda Rhodes at arhodes@cameronartmuseum.com or 910-395-5999x1008

In his workshop, we will focus and explore the concept of “values” (darks and lights) as a compositional tool and in its relationship to color.  We will analyze of master artists’ works and how they utilized values in order to create more organized, dynamic paintings. I will lead you through drawing and painting exercises, provide demonstrations and group and individual instruction to further reinforce the concepts. Students may use any painting medium. I will provide demonstrations in oil.
