Join Mary Whyte for an extraordinary workshop at Center for the Arts Evergreen in Evergreen, Colorado. Using live clothed models, Whyte will demonstrate daily and guide you through the techniques of planning your compositions, drawing, mixing color and creating great backgrounds. She will show you how to work with the model, avoid mistakes and give personal critiques and great tips for marketing your work. Whyte’s work is in many corporate and museum collections and has been featured in International Artist, American Artist, Artist Magazine and American Art Collector magazines.  She has been awarded the Portrait Society of America’s Gold Medal.

In 2010, American artist, author and teacher Whyte set out on a mission to paint fifty large-scale watercolor portraits of what it means to be an American veteran today. Over seven years in the making, WE THE PEOPLE: Portraits of Veterans in America took her across the United States to meet men and women of all ages and from all walks of life, and paint some of our country’s truest patriots. Whyte’s WE THE PEOPLE , which includes portraits of a Missouri dairy farmer, Rhode Island lobsterman, Pennsylvania science teacher, South Carolina single mother, and 46 other moving works, is poised to become a national treasure honoring and connecting with men and women in uniform for generations to come.
