The Galveston Art League will host a March 9 painting workshop led by Sugar Land artist Ron Gordon. During his “Make It Work” event, Gordon will teach an overview of color theory and then participants will do hands-on applications of color that adhere to key design and composition principles.
The workshop at the Galveston Art League, 2119A Postoffice St. in downtown Galveston, will be held from 10 a.m. to 3 pm. (with an hour off for lunch, which you may bring or pick up at one of the many nearby restaurants). All supplies and materials are included as part of the $100 workshop fee. Register online at www.GalvestonArtLeague.com by clicking on the Workshops tab. This workshop has limited enrollment, so participants are encouraged to sign up early.
Gordon ― whose website is www.RGordonArt.com ― holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the University of Southern Mississippi. He has worked as a public school art teacher, a freelance graphic artist and illustrator, and as a private school principal.
More recently, Gordon has been doing commissioned artwork for medical facilities, sales offices, businesses and corporate environments, and individuals.
His workshop is offered as part of the nonprofit Galveston Art League’s mission to promote visual arts and arts education in Galveston County and beyond.
The league, which was founded in 1914, operates adjacent galleries at 2117A and 2119A Postoffice St. in Galveston. Most workshops are held at 2119A. Exhibits in the gallery, which are changed every month, feature paintings, photography, mixed-media, jewelry, and 3-D works. Artwork subjects range from coastal themes to portraits, animals and flowers, to architecture and much more. Shoppers may visit the gallery from noon to 6 pm. Thursdays-Saturdays and during ArtWalk.
