Long time artist, teacher and resident of Bucks County, Pa, Barbara Lewis trained at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts and at Studio Incamminati, both in Philadelphia.
Out of favor for decades, classical training in drawing and painting is making a resurgence, and Barbara promotes this in her own teaching. “It takes years of drawing and painting from life to develop artistic strengths. One has to learn to see nuances in value and color, to handle proportion, composition and perspective, before one can accurately and expressively paint.” Barbara will give a mini presentation on the history of portraiture and also do a charcoal portrait sketch demo.

Primarily self-taught and fascinated by the space that lies somewhere between photography and painting, Dan’s work embraces both the conceptual and the material. Dan’s decidedly modern approach to digital photo manipulation, juxtaposed with classical sensibilities and the physical enhancement of the encaustic wax medium, renders the works a timeless and tangible signifcance. Dan will be doing a demo of his encaustic mixed media photography. Visit www.dantphoto.com
