Hansen museum to hold Vollbracht Oil Painting Workshop

Press release

LOGAN — The Dane G. Hansen Museum’s Continuing Education Program is excited to have representational landscape painter of the west and Signature Member of Oil Painters of America, David Vollbracht, teach a 3-day oil painting workshop at the Dane G. Hansen Museum on July 9, 10 and 11. During this workshop, Vollbracht will demonstrate oil painting techniques and teach students to enhance their personal painting style with composition, color, and brushwork. Students will explore design, color, values, and composition as well as the more elusive elements of mood, passion, and attitude.

Vollbracht earned his art degree from Fort Hays State University. His knowledge has been nurtured by attending the art workshops of Clyde Aspevig and Wayne Wolfe. His art reflects the quality of light, nature, and spirit drawn from the land. He emphasizes the beauty and importance of the natural landscape in his compositions. He is intrigued by patterns and shapes in nature and the effect that light has on these elements. His work has been in numerous shows including: Mountain Oyster Club Show, Tucson, Ariz; One Man Show, Wichita Center for the Arts, Wichita, KS; National Miniature Show, La Luz, N.M.; and National Oil Painters of America Exhibitions and Rocky Mountain Plein Air Show, Winter Park, Co.

Registration fees for this workshop are $180.00 with discounts available to Patron and Sustaining members of the Hansen Museum.
