From Thursday, August 5, 2021 to Sunday, August 8, 2021 August 5, 2021 August 8, 2021 The Lodge at St Edward State Park
Learn to paint in the Russian Impressionist tradition with local artist Pam Ingalls at The Lodge at St. Edward State Park. The class is set up to take each student at their own level through the basics of oil painting with still lives and/or portraits. Wednesday evening watch a painting demonstration, where there will be lots of time for questions afterward. The next four days will be an immersion into learning how to paint. Plan to get inspired and walk away with new skills. All levels of experience are welcome!
Pam Ingalls loves to paint light falling on ordinary people, objects, and scenes. Raised in Spokane, Washington, she was first inspired by her parents, artists Richard and Marjorie Ingalls. She studied art at the Accademia Di Belle Arti in Florence, Italy and earned an art degree from the art department that her father began at Gonzaga University in Spokane. After exploring a few side paths, Pam returned to her true passion under the mentorship of Russian Impressionist, Ron Lukas - a protoge of Sergei Bongart. She also has studied with Frederick Frank, Richard Schmid and Burt Silverman.
Strong color and sound drawing are primary in her paintings. Her choice of simple subject matter is surprising, sometimes humorous, and always full of emotion. Portraits, still life and interior scenes populate her studio. A table with chairs, a diner counter top, rubber boots standing by a kitchen door, even a clawfoot tub - all evoke a sense of humanity and presence, as if someone is either about to enter the frame or has just left it. Her widely collected, award-winning work has been exhibited throughout the United States, Europe, and Africa, and juried into more than 125 national and international shows. She has been featured in Southwest Art Magazine, American Art Collector and American Artists Magazine.
