MORGAN SAMUEL PRICE – Waterfalls With Design

OCT 27 to 29, 2022 – $625

Thursday to Saturday: 9:00 am to 4:30 pm

Come and join us this fall painting waterfalls in the beautiful north Georgia mountains. Learn how to compose and develop your landscape to its full potential.

Morgan discovered she loved teaching as much as she loved painting. Many artists teach but not all see teaching itself as an art, Morgan does. Morgan learned to explain a single concept many ways by tuning into how different people hear information. She put learning issues into treasure boxes. Morgan has always placed art instruction in the highest regard, this is why she became one of our most respected teachers of art.

Most of Morgan’s students can name the 23 most common design problems. Few realize she still examines every inch of her paintings to assure that she has not made those same mistakes herself. Morgan likely has the largest return rate of any painting teacher today. She remembers you and your work, even decades later. Within one painting Morgan knows exactly what you need to do next to be even better. She does not teach generally, every word she speaks to a group or to a student is tailored, specific, and inclusive of individual needs while still considering the workshop as a whole.

Morgan is a member of many art societies including:

  • Salmagundi Club NY

  • Allied Artists NYC

  • American Society of Marine Artists

  • Oil Painters of America.

Workshops for 2023

A Note From Anita Elder at the Art Loft…

Great things come in threes. They really do!

For the first time the Art Loft is offering a series of workshops (3 in fact) in 2023, by the artist, Christopher Groves. The series is called “Oil Painting ‘In Depth'”.

Why offer a series?

The series of 3 workshops (each 3 days long), will use the scaffolding method, where each workshop builds on the previous ones. Each workshop focuses on specific learning blocks, starting with the basics and moving through to find your own style and voice, offering you a more indepth study of the art of oil painting.

Why Christopher Groves?

Having studied at the Florence Academy of Art in Italy, Chris also holds a BFA in Environmental Design and Architecture from Colorado University and was a Lead Landscape instructor at the CAA Atelier Colorado classic academy. This gives him a unique perspective, combining his teaching skills with his love of painting, and enables him to pass on his knowledge to others in a structured way that students can build upon. In these workshops you will learn about his different approaches, techniques, and styles of painting, allowing you to expand and find your own.

  • 2nd Session – June 30th – July 2nd, 2023
