Luke Buck, watercolor artist, returns to Raven Hill for the 12th year. The focus this year is on “old barns” in conjunction with the Labor Days: A History of Work exhibit scheduled for August and September.  The watercolor workshop runs from 10am to 3pm both days.  Cost is $275 and lunch is included. The workshop will emphasize the construction of barns, noting the interesting variations and styles of barns found throughout the country and the beauty in art that they portray. The class will be studying painting techniques in textures, from the woods to the shingling and metal roofs, as well as the unique compositions derived from the placement of barns in accordance with their terrain or use. This is one of Luke’s favorite special interest subjects.

Luke's workshop is designed for the novice beginner, intermediate, or the more advanced & accomplished watercolor artist.  As always, this informal workshop will be a motivational, creative and inspirational session with enjoyment and camaraderie among friends and fellow artists.  Luke Buck, a native "Hoosier", grew up and studied art in Indiana. His nostalgic paintings of Americana landscapes and American wildlife show a love for life, art, and nature. Many “locals” here in northern Michigan appreciate his talents and enjoy collecting his paintings.
