LEXINGTON, KY - Booth Malone will conduct a painting workshop August 2 – 6 as part of a series of equine art workshops produced at the Kentucky Horse Park by the American Association of Equine Artists (AAEA).
The workshop, “Developing Style and Technique,” will focus on traditional oil painting and how students can best develop their personal abilities and style. Discussions will be held to critique and provide insight into the techniques and styles of past masters and contemporary artists, as well as for the students in this class. In addition, the class will show students how to get the best from photographs as well as their own eyes.
Booth Malone has been a professional painter since 1985, beginning with steeplechase venues in his native state, Georgia. He shows annually at Saratoga Springs and at the Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Event, and his work has appeared in numerous juried and invitational exhibitions. Self-taught, he says “I’m a prime example of how much you can get out of an informal course of study from books, museum visits, hard work, and asking lots of questions.”
The workshop will run from 9 am to 5 pm each day, and the tuition is $400. Full tuition payment must be made at the time of registration to guarantee placement in a workshop. Class size is limited, and students will be enrolled on a “first application received” basis. A waiting list is established if a workshop is filled.
The American Academy of Equine Art is a nonprofit, tax-exempt organization founded in 1980 by ten distinguished painters and sculptors famed individually for their work on equine subjects.
