IGNITE YOUR CREATIVE FIRE – with Richard Alan Nichols

July 5, 2019 - July 15, 2019


Richard Alan Nichols invites you to a workshop focused on exploring the creative process. Participants will be encouraged to dig deep, to think differently, and to experiment with their art in ways they may never have before. These experiments are like sparks, intended to ignite a more creative and passionate connection to painting.

This 10-day workshop will be conducted in both the studio and en plein air. While all levels are welcome, plein air experience is strongly recommended. The format for each day will vary depending on weather and or location but will include demonstrations and lectures, paint-along presentations, individual painting time, personalized guidance and group discussions aimed to promote your progress. You will always receive mentor feedback to encourage your artistic style and ventures. Optional evening opportunities are also offered.

Demonstrations will be in oil, but other mediums are encouraged. However, students should have a confident grasp of use in their alternative medium.

You will leave this workshop excited, ready to experiment more on your own, and above all, pointed toward meaningful, personal, and artistic growth. Learn to let go of the familiar formulas and create with confidence.

“The purpose of life, after all, is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experiences.”~ Eleanor Roosevelt

Richard Alan Nichols

Richard strives to render, in his words, “a visual poem” with each stroke. Whether brushed in oil, a textured charcoal or a splashing stroke of watercolor, his creative spirit will always be the sole guide of his art. From sunflower petals in a still life, the unnoticed details of a bustling city street, or when the Sangre De Cristo’s Mountains beckon with evanescent Plein Aire light. 
His natural artistic ability was given a strong foundation in traditional impressionism which was nurtured during his tenure at the American Academy of Art in Chicago, IL.
As an internationally recognized artist, his work is highly sought after by many private collectors and is housed in numerous permanent collections. Places such as the American Academy of Art, the Crouch Foundation, the Taos Art Museum, The Town of Taos, and many major colleges of the Midwest proudly display his work.
