Stanley Maltzman Pastel Class

Drawing, Pastel: August 6 – 12, 2006
All Levels
Outdoor Class

Stanley Maltzman is a highly acclaimed landscape artist, author, and educator. He is the author of Drawing Nature and Drawing Trees. Recently he was honored to exhibit at the Butler Institute. Stanโ€™s sensitive portrayals of nature reveal an intimacy with the Catskill Mountain landscape attained through over 40 years of observation and work.
Art is the business of seeing and Stan has designed his drawing class to encourage you to learn to see. Class is structured to help you discover the drama taking place, to approach the subject with inspiration and craftsmanship and to enjoy working outdoors. Over the course of the week Stan will demonstrate techniques using drawing media such as charcoal, graphite, conte, pastel, and pastel pencil. Teaching themes will include composition, improvised and planned drawing, and capturing the mood of the moment.

Photo Op Judi Betts’ workshop

Well, if you missed the Judi Betts Workshop, you missed a great workshop. So, next time, don’t miss it. Sheesh. You’d think you woulda loyned by now. ๐Ÿ˜‰

First let me introduce the cast:

And our starring role goes to my newish Strawberry Soup with Devon (Double) Cream:

Actually, it looks more like filmjolk in this photo. I have since made it much thicker.

The stage:

The Waiter did it:

OK. Pictures of the waiter really. And here’s a party Judi had for her students. What a great instructress.

Drawing Hudson, the dog not the river.

Here I am posing with Hudson. I ran him and he was still frisky.

No, that’s David stretched out on the floor. He was frisky too! ๐Ÿ˜‰ You can catch him in reruns of Star Trek TNG.

InnSanely Fast


Margaret Evans has come and gone. And everyone had a blast. I have pictures ready to go but they are still in the camera.

Judi Betts is here now and people are having a fun time. We have some pictures. I hope to get this up soon. Hudson was their nude male model. I was the puppy wrangler. I took him out for a run before the modeling and he was pretty tired.

The Big Moose

The Big Moose got a face lift today. I lightened it a little by adding more egg whites and a touch more butter. It no longer a massive block of chocolate, sigh, but rather a nice airy mousse. However, I am blending in 82% Scharffen Berger chocolate with the 70% so it’s even more chocolatey.

I’ve been having a great time with it.

The hard working students on location…

The hard working students cut loose at the dinner table…

Don’t they look like they’re having fun? Don’t you wish you’d been there?

What a fun crowd and what fun they had at Elizabeth Apgar-Smith’s workshop.

Photo Op: Ray the Prep Cook

Here’s a picture of the guy that helps me prep in the kitchen. He’s very good. So, when you eat our gourmet delights, thank him in your hearts.

Hello, I’m the Greenville Arms

I’ll put more pictures of the staff. It isn’t just John, Kim and me. We have a large staff to see to your needs and desires. Dishwashers, chamber maids, cooks, and more.

Photo Op: US

Well, the workshop photos are coming but in the meantime, here’s some pictures of us and the Arms.

My prep cook puts signs up for me so I know where he has put stuff.

His little joke. These were out on the counter.

The rest are of us at play.


Walking Hudson in a park by Reinbeck.

We repainted the porches…

as well as the rest of the house.

My Sweety.

Hudson sleeping on me as a bed. What a sweet dog.

There he is nuzzling. He’s a frisky dog and needs his rest.
