Experience the Power of Not Knowing with Sally Cummings
A palette knife painting adventure
October 2 - 4, 2020
10am - 4pm (Visiting Master Artist)
Skill Level: All Skills Welcome
“Picking up a large palette knife was the most critical decision I’ve made during my career as an artist. The second most critical decision I’ve made was to start teaching what I’ve learned about my painting approach as well as sharing my experience of how it relates to living life in a more fulfilling manner. Many of us face blocks in our creative process which often accompany blocks we are experiencing in “real life”. I invite my students to reframe their perception of right vs. wrong, challenging them to practice a courageous mindset that welcomes possibilities of triumph over frustration. My goal is to send students off with a toolset that breathes new life into the process of art creation, as well as into the process of fulfilled living.” - Sally Cummings
Here is a short list of what students can expect from Sally’s teaching:
  • instructive daily demos with concurrent discussion and Q/A
  • opportunity to explore landscape, figure and floral subject matter
  • identifying and using reference points for quick sketch lay-in
  • painting on large surfaces using lots of paint
  • applying paint with a variety of knife shapes and sizes
  • gentle feedback and guidance that meets you at your own level
  • personalized easel-side instruction that assists in finishing your own painting.
"I thoroughly enjoyed the workshop. I learned so much and it was fun! Sally is so inspirational. I left the workshop with techniques and concepts to explore, with more confidence, on my own. She taught me to loosen up and paint more freely without being afraid. Sally explains her process very well and she was so generous with her knowledge. It was a well organized workshop with the right balance of demo and painting time with plenty of hands-on help. I never felt stressed, she made us feel so comfortable. Sally is an amazing teacher and I'm looking forward to more workshops with her in the future." Gail L - April 2019 workshop at IAA in Fernandina Beach.

"I like to think of Sally’s class as the No Fear Class. I have taken workshops in the past where students have actually cried from stress. Students of all levels will find her encouraging, patient, and creative. I am extremely happy with the amount of knowledge that she so willingly shared and demonstrated, and I am looking forward to her next workshop. She is a terrific instructor!" Angela M - Fairhope, AL. August 2019 workshop at IAA in Fernandina Beach.
