David Volbracht Oil Painting Workshop

The Dane G. Hansen Memorial Museum takes great pride in hosting a four day painting workshop with David Vollbracht at the Dane G. Hansen Memorial Museum, 110 W. Main, Logan, Kansas.  This workshop will run from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on July 6, 7, and 8, 2017, with a one hour break for lunch each day.

This learning opportunity is brought to you through the Hansen Museum Continuing Education Program.  Cost of the workshop is $180.00 with discounts available for Hansen Museum members.  This workshop will stress using the fundamental elements of art and evoking a personal response to improve your painting skills.  One morning the class will sketch en plein air and from that sketch develop a small oil painting in the classroom.  Design, color, values, and composition will be explored as well as the more illusive but just as important elements of mood, passion, and attitude.  Intermediate and advanced artists may call 785-689-4846 for more information or to register by phone.

David Vollbracht is a representational oil painter with the distinction of signature membership in Oil Painters of America.  His work reflects the quality of light, nature, and spirit drawn from the land.  David emphasizes the beauty and importance of the natural landscape in his compositions.  He is intrigued by the patterns and shapes in nature and concentrates on the effects of light on these elements.

Mr. Vollbracht resides in Medicine Lodge, Kansas and has earned a degree in art from Fort Hays State University.  His knowledge has been nurtured by attending the art workshops of Clyde Aspevig and Wayne Wolfe.  David has shown his work at numerous shows including: Mountain Oyster Club Show, Tucson, AZ; One Man Show, Wichita Center for the Arts, Wichita, KS; National Miniature Show, La Luz, NM; and National Oil Painters of America Exhibitions and Rocky Mountain Plein Air Show, Winter Park, CO.  Currently, David has art work in the following galleries: Elkhorn Art Gallery, Winter Park, CO; Paint Horse Gallery, Breckenridge, CO; and the Dane G. Hansen Memorial Museum, Logan, KS.
