22 Marine Street       St. Augustine, FL 32084

WORKSHOP SCHEDULE

Day 1
9am to 4pm

I'll begin by giving a painting demonstration lasting about an hour focusing on how to get a good start, choosing your composition, use of color and perspective,
brushwork and adding subtle details that will result in a good finish. Questions are encouraged.

Following the demonstration we'll have a paint along. Students have found this to be a very useful part of the weekend.
We'll take a simple landscape and after each step, I'll look at your painting and make suggestions.Then we'll go to the next stage until everyones paintings are complete. Comments I might make will benefit the group collectively as we'll all be painting the same subject.

12:00 to 1:00  Lunch will be provided but you're also welcome to bring your own. There are numerous restaurants nearby but this is a tourist town!

1:00 to 4:00    After lunch you'll begin work on your painting using your reference photos. I suggest you keep your canvas size rather small (11x14 is a good size and no larger than 16x20") so you can get through one or more entire paintings from start to finish. I'll move from student to student helping with any problems you might encounter.

Day 2
9am to 4pm

The day will begin with another painting demonstration with questions and answers. Then each student will work on their own painting. Again, I'll move from person to person helping to solve any problems you may be encountering. A lot is accomplished as most of the day will be individual attention.

12:00 to 1:00 lunch

1:00 to 4:00
After lunch, I will give a short talk on perspective and then help you work towards completeing your paintings.


You're invited to visit my studio across from the lighthouse after the workshop on Saturday.

WHAT STUDENTS SAY ABOUT THE WORKSHOP

"Roger conducts a superb workshop. In a relaxed atmosphere, he packed each day with excellent art instruction through demonstrations and lots of personal attention. Best workshop I have ever had the privilege of attending."
Doris Trexler


"I am one of your St. Augustine workshop attendees who wishes to express how much I enjoyed the time with you and Sarah.  It was one of my most favorite painting experiences and the best workshop opportunity I have had. Thank you for such a fun experience and for sharing so freely your expertise.  The entire weekend was planned beautifully and the paint-a-long was especially effective.  It brought us all together and I learned by watching and trying to duplicate.  Each time you visited my easel, your help was explicit and timely.  I appreciated your presence and attention even during lunch.  I learned countless painting tips and my painting skills were immensely enhanced.  I thought I had value down and maybe I did in my head.  But you showed me how to persist in translating it from the eye to the hand.
Enjoy your travels and I look forward to seeing your adventures on PBS."
Betty McKee


"A Roger Bansemer Workshop offers students of art an opportunity to focus on color, shapes, and design in a comfortable, learning atmosphere. Conversational demonstrations of every instructional phase makes art happen easily and well on the canvasses of attendees.
Hands-on guidance allows both aspiring and experienced artists to acquire or develop skills at a relaxed but steady pace. A successful artist and producer of fine art and art instruction for television, Roger knows and shares the many "secrets" that turn out to be not that mysterious after all. Plain language and professional instruction".
