    Michael Clann Workshop - ARTS for Rural Texas

    Ambiguity in Art with Michael Clann Arts for Rural Texas is offering an adult painting workshop with Michael Clann in Fayetteville on August 20th, 21st, and 22nd.  This three day workshop is open to those artists who wish to explore how to say more in their artwork.  In this small but lively workshop Clann will guide students through visual storytelling skills and how to cultivate a sense of ambiguity in art.  Clann says, “Oftentimes the most compelling stories are those that leave unanswered questions.  The same is true for art.  By creating ambiguity, or leaving part of the story unfinished, the artist gives room for the viewer to bring himself into the art in order to complete the story.  This is exciting not only for the artist but for the viewer as well.” Michael Clann is a representational artist who believes it is the viewer’s response to unresolved questions that gives art its meaning.  He is drawn to paint brief interludes of human interaction and enjoys painting animals, especially when they exhibit human-like qualities.  Man’s imprint on the landscape is also a subject of interest to him. He has studied at the Glassell School of Art, Newcomb College, the Art League of Houston, and the Watercolor Art Society-Houston.  As a voracious reader, he nevertheless describes himself as self-taught. His painting media of choice are acrylics, watercolor, oils and pastels.   Michael has served as vice-president and as a member of the board of the Watercolor Art Society-Houston and is a founder, board member and president of Arts for Rural Texas.  His works can be found in private and corporate collections throughout the United States and the United Kingdom. During Michael's 50 plus years as an artist, he also practiced law, specializing in maritime law, litigation, dispute resolution and negotiation.  In addition, he was a professor of law, teaching legal negotiation, practice management and international litigation and arbitration at the University of Houston Law Center. Perhaps his depth of experience in resolving disputes has led to his keen interest in creative paintings that leave room for unresolved questions. The class size will be limited and registration is open at Arts for Rural Texas.  The three day workshop will be held in the Schmid ARTS Annex at 105 Main Street, Fayetteville, Texas, from 9:30 – 4:30, August 20th, 21st, and 22nd.  The registration fee is $325.  For more information and to enroll call ARTS at 979-378-2113 or online at www.artsforruraltexas.org
