Artist’s Workshop ~ Oil Painting, Demonstration & Critique with Rett Ashby:
Rett will demonstrate his process of painting from beginning to end discussing the principles and how he applies them to his painting.

Along with the demonstration and discussion, a critique of art work (finished or in progress) provided by students and teacher will be offered. Students should bring their art work, finished or not.
Rett received his formal arts education at Weber State and Utah State Universities. He studied with Harrison Groutage, Glen Edwards, and LeConte Stewart. Rett's art is influenced by Schmid, Hullings, many old world masters. He continues to experiment and hone his own style.
