New Williamsburg Oil Events!

An exciting opportunity came up for me last year that I am proud to share - I was chosen by Williamsburg Oils to be a part of their new education program and having been going through extensive technical training to be able to conduct lectures on oil painting!  Myself and three other artists spent a week at the Golden Paints factory studying under the Williamsburg oil experts and paint makers to expand our depth of knowledge on the medium, then spent several months doing extensive readings to study the material.  Next steps are to book lectures, so if you know of venues/art groups that would benefit from a technical lecture on oil painting, please let me know so that I can forward the info to Williamsburg to approve an event!

As part of this program, myself and the three other Williamsburg artist lecturers were invited to choose a couple of our favorite colors in the Williamsburg line to be featured in promotional displays this Spring and Fall.  My Spring color is Prussian Blue and the promotional displays can be found in select art stores nationwide!  I was able to see one recently at the Jerry's Artarama in Knoxville, TN when I did a Golden lecture/demo there last month...


 In addition to the oil lectures I will be doing, I will also be starting to offer regular hands-on oil painting workshops at my studio and the first will be happening on Friday June from 12-5pm ($65 fee)!  Drop me a line if you are interested in signing up - amyshawley@gmail.com
