Speaker: Tina Brunetti
Tina, primarily a self-taught artist, has developed a very distinctive signature
“stained glass” style born out of her experimentation with sand and glue on
large gallery wrapped canvases. While she has extended her subject matter
to flora, jazz, sport, angel, and landscape themes, her preference remains for wildlife subjects. Tina features overlapping wildlife subjects (e.g., lions, peacocks, tigers, eagles, zebras, wolves, flowers, etc) creating the illusion of stained glass, on her vivid mixed media canvases.
Tina also creates and sells reproductions of her art in the form of prints, greeting cards, jewelry, and wearable art t-shirts, dresses and skirts! Her products are sold at The Red Door Galleries in Historic Downtown Loudon, where she also gives BREWnetti painting classes.

"Painting Ideas..... Theories that Make Exciting Paintings"
Speaker: Paul deMarrais
Paul says, "In my workshops I try to give students the basis for making decisions in their paintings. A successful painting is created by navigating through hundreds of decisions during the painting process. Throughout the long history of painting, artists have contributed many ideas to help in this challenge. Our job is not to reinvent the wheel. Why not explore the ideas and theories put forth by many of the great artists of the past and present? Artists have always been great borrowers! Each of us will put our own unique spin on these ideas, filtering them through our own personalities and experiences. Too much emphasis is often given to the 'how to's' of painting at the expense of the 'why's', the theories that form the foundation of our paintings."
