KC WORKSHOP EVOLUTION

Stacy Krieg, a local Kansas City artist, is a friend of Slava's. Since meeting Slava on the Oregon coast, she was determined to bring him to the beautiful midwest. Not only did Stacy want to introduce Slava to our gorgeous landscape, she also wanted to share his wealth of knowledge with as many US artists as possible. He is such a gift and a joy! Slava is not only a talented artist, but he is a wonderful person. He is an outstanding art instructor, but more than that, he changes the way people think about art and gives people what they need to explore their own natural talents. Slava teaches artists to paint from the heart, with intense vigor and confidence. This will be Slava's second workshop in Kansas City.

NATIONAL WW1 MUSEUM AND - DEMO EVENT FOR THE PUBLIC - FRIDAY - 5/17/19 - 5-7 PM - FREE WITH R.S.V.P.

The National WW1 Museum and Memorial is a treasured landmark in Kansas City. The Museum and Memorial were built in the 1920s to remember, interpret, and understand the impact of the Great War. The National WW1 Museum and Memorial has generously offered to host a demonstration event where Slava will paint a live demonstration on location. It will be an amazing opportunity to watch Slava paint our city. Slava is truly magical to watch!

The demo will take place at The National WW1 Museum and Memorial in Kansas City, MO, on Friday, 5/17, from 5-7 pm on the Southeast Lawn. Please bring your own lawn chairs. At the end of the demonstration, Slava will offer the painting of The Museum and Memorial to the highest bidder. He will also have other paintings available for purchase for anyone who is interested. If there is rain, the event will be held indoors. THE EVENT IS FREE WITH R.S.V.P. Registration will be available online at https://www.theworldwar.org/ in early April.

PAINTING WORKSHOP - FOR ARTISTS - 5/18-5/21 + (5/22 Optional Day - Flint Hills)

Please join us for this amazing opportunity to work with a master artist who is an absolute joy as an instructor. Slava manages to teach students a great deal about themselves and to reach them on a personal level. This is more than an art instruction class. It is an opportunity to develop your skills, connect with people, and discover the joy that is painting like you never have before.

The 4 day painting workshop (+ an optional 5th day) is suited for every level of artist from beginner to master painter. Slava has a unique way of working with artists from all backgrounds to meet them where they are and to help each person improve their work greatly. The workshop is the caffeine all artists need to push their work to the next level. The workshop is geared toward plein air artists, but every type of painter is welcome.

In this workshop, there is something for everyone! We want people to improve their skills in their own comfort zone, but also to try new things. Two days of the workshop will be dedicated to landscape and two days will be dedicated to figurative work (clothed models in landscape). We will paint on a picturesque 10 acre farm in Shawnee, KS (suburb of Kansas City for 3 days). We will also paint one day at The National WW1 Museum and Memorial, downtown Kansas City, to capture an urban landscape.

Registration for the art workshop is limited to 15. This workshop always fills up very quickly, so make sure to sign up as soon as possible.

A FEW NOTES ABOUT THE WORKSHOP.........

-The demo event is free with R.S.V.P. through The National WW1 Museum and Memorial. The link will be on their website in early April to sign up for the demo.

-May is unpredicatable weather in Kansas. Please be prepared to work in the heat, outdoors at the workshop. The 10 acre farm has a barn and many trees for shade, but it could very hot or possibly even cold in May. May is our rainy season as well, so dress accordingly. Bring a lot of water.

-Participants are responsible for bringing their own lunch each day.

-Slava is a very easy going and flexible artist. This is what makes his workshops very special. Please expect some changes to itinerary and plans daily as needs arise (weather, model schedule, translator schedule, etc). We do the best we can to stay on track, but inevitably changes occur.

-Two days are designated as landscape painting days and two days will be figurative days. Each day Slava will begin with a demonstration. On the figurative days, Slava will paint a live model (clothed). Artists are always welcome to paint landscape on the days we do figurative work, if that is their preference. The option to train in both is a great asset to this workshop, however. It's always great to work outside of your comfort zone.

-Please bring your own art supplies. There are no special paint colors required for the workshop. Stacy will send out a list of the colors Slava uses regularly to those who register. If you do not have plein air supplies, there is no need to purchase special equipment. You can pick up an in expensive easel to work on or feel free to bring a small table. Slava paints in oils. Students are welcome to use whatever paints they have. Oils may be the best option, given the weather and dry times, but it can be possible to use acrylics, if you bring extenders for dry time, etc. Canvas sizes are up to you, however, for the two figurative days, it is recommended to work with a canvas at least 16x20.

-Plein air painting experience is NOT necessary for this workshop. Your work will benefit from Slava’s instruction, no matter what your subject matter and experience level. Also, Slava is an impressionist painter. Painting in an impressionist style is NOT required for this class. Slava prefers that you paint in your own style. He is amazing at helping you find your own voice.

-Slava requires a minimum of 8 students to hold the workshop. If that is not fulfilled, refunds will be made. The refunds will be done through Eventbrite/Paypal. Timing of refunds is dependent upon Eventbrite and Paypal refund process.

-There is a maximum of 15 students that can register for the workshop.

-There is no maximum for the demo. It's a treat. Bring friends along! It is great to see Slava paint.

-If you need to cancel your registration, you have 30 days before the event to do so. After that time, refunds will not be made. Any fees associated with the cancellation of your registration will be paid by the participant (ie. paypal or eventbrite fees).

-Eventbrite (registration site), charges a small fee for use of their site. These fees are passed along to the participant at time of registration.

-Slava speaks a decent amount of english, however, he is not completely proficient in the english language. As he continues to travel more in the US, his english is continually improving. Stacy will try to locate a Russian translator for parts of the workshop, although a translator is not guaranteed. Students normally understand Slava and his english has not been an issue.

-Although monetary payments will be made to Stacy Krieg via Eventbrite, all money will later be transferred, and made payable to Slava for the workshop. Stacy will serve as the main point of contact for the workshop.
