Instructor: Lisa Stauffer
Lisa Stauffer received her Master’s in Design (University Of Minnesota, Minneapolis) and studied Illustration at Parson’s School of Design (NYC). She continues her education by taking workshops from nationally recognized painters whose work inspires her. She has worked and taught in a wide variety of media, now primarily painting in soft pastel with a special focus on painting en plein air to indulge her fascination with light and color in Minnesota’s beautiful north shore landscape. Lisa was just awarded Master Circle status by the International Association Of Pastel Societies in 2011. She was awarded the H.K. Holbein Award at the Pastel Society Of America Show at the National Arts Club in New York City, September 2010 and the Pastel Painters Of Cape Cod Award in 2012. Each of these years her painting was one of those chosen by the Director of the Butler Institute Of American Art, Youngstown, Ohio, to travel to the exhibit American Pastels in the museum Dec-Jan. Lisa was juried into the Pastel Society Of America and awarded Signature status in 2012. Her work has been featured in articles in PleinAir Magazine, Pastel Journal and Stephen Doherty’s book, The Art Of Plein Air Painting.
Open to any medium, advanced beginner in your medium. There is a maximum of 12 students in the class. The class will not be held if there are less than 3 students. Complete beginners, or those who do not wish to paint, may wish to watch and ask questions.
Lisa will provide tips on painting after dark, advice on equipment, and a chance to try it out in a friendly group with support and guidance. Lisa can stay around past the end time for those working more slowly. This is about learning more about the nocturne and not necessarily about finishing a painting.
