Art Classes with Silvia Trujillo

Here’s a quick reminder about art classes with Silvia Trujillo.

Meeting time for the Thursday, October 28 mini-workshops at Scrappy Craft is now 10am-1pm. The following class will be Thursday, December 2, also 10-1pm. Looking forward to seeing you then! Contact me directly to confirm your attendance. 

There is still room for you at the Alpaca farm – Plein Air class – this Saturday! The weather’s looking good, and Fall colors will be abundant. Sign up through the Rogue Gallery Art Center

Here are a few new plein air works completed this summer. The smoke was challenging, but it created a surreal atmosphere and made for interesting color harmonies. The lavender farm at the base of Mt Hood is spectacular! I suggest making it a priority to visit sometime next summer.

New Works by Silvia Trujillo

I’m still here; painting a lot and teaching when I can. The past 18 months have seen some challenging times for everyone! I wish each of you well during all the difficulties. 


Looking for beauty where it can be found, experiencing life’s simple pleasures, and being in the moment as much as possible; these are the things that are getting me through. May the same be true for you.  

Painting is a way of life and a source of salvation for me. Offering these works of art for others to enjoy brings me great joy; so when you have a moment take a look at my latest offerings.  

You can view my latest paintings on eBay- see my store link below. Just let me know what interests you, and contact me directly (via email), for an additional 15% savings.  

Are you on Facebook or Instagram? I’d love to keep in touch with you there as well!

Silvia Trujillo August Classes & New Works

At the end of the month, I’ll be resuming teaching at Scrappy Craft in Phoenix, OR with a mini-workshop called “Improve Your Paintings – 101”. The class is for anyone who wants to advance their painting and drawing skills with me- a teacher who has loads of experience, and a knack for personal coaching. The class is Thursday, August 26 from 1-4 pm / $25 cash, PayPal, or checks only. Contact me directly to reserve your spot.


 On August 28, 10am- 5pm, Rogue Gallery in Medford is hosting my all-day workshop ( see attached flyer) “ Composing the Landscape”.  There is still time for you to sign up!  Call or email them directly to sign up. If you have questions email me here, but enrollment is through the gallery only.


I’m pleased to say that 3 of my works were accepted in the “Haystack Rock” show in the Cannon Beach Gallery! The show is up and running until August 29.  If you’re in the area be sure and stop by to see the many artistic variations of that awe-inspiring Haystack!


And here are some of my recent works done en plein air. 

Silvia Trujillo Summer Newsletter

Silvia Trujillo Summer Newsletter

Lately I’ve been setting my sights for a greater understanding of balance, adaptation, and peace in my life. May all of you be well in these most unusual times, and managing to find some serenity in your lives.
Finding beauty wherever I can, and continuing to paint has been my saving grace.
Several of my patrons have been acquiring more art from me since there is so much nesting going on. I’m grateful to be able to provide them with new work for their collections, and for their fresh decorating schemes.
Attached is a link to my eBay store. Why not take a moment and look to see if there is something you’re attracted to. I will be delighted to hear your feedback!.
Also attached is a link to a recent videotape of me doing a painting. I think you will find it very entertaining
 And here’s a special gift: For those of you who send me a photo of the painting you already own of my work, I will send you a one- of-a- kind, handmade, block print card (suitable for framing) from one of my original designs. Since I’ve been more active on social media, I’m asking collectors to send photos of my work in the setting where they are being displayed so that I can share them…You can (or not) include yourself with the work.

Silvia Trujillo – Back to Teaching and Art

I’ve been thinking about you, and sending you all well wishes during these most unusual and challenging times.
Obviously, I have not been teaching (except for a few online critiques), but missing it much. I hope you have found the inspiration, time, and effort needed to continue to produce art in whatever form that has taken for you. I’ve managed to do several plein air works, and a studio piece here and there. Also, I  completed a commission of a pet portrait. See the attached examples, and tell me if you recognize any of the locations 🙂
Artist Attic/ Scrappy Craft is now open, and I can resume Wednesday classes. Of course there will be precautions, sanitation, and distancing measures being taken. We want everyone to feel safe! If you are a returning student please let me know if you will like to return on Wed, May 20 , and I will reserve a spot for you. The class size is limited. If you are new, and would like to join the class, let’s see what kind of arrangements can be made. I will do my best to accommodate you!
Are you on Instagram by any chance? Some of my time has been spent getting familiar with that, and I’m finding that it is a quick and easy way to keep my art and art related info out there without too much of a time commitment. It also links to my Facebook page. The links are below. Let’s connect on these social platforms if we haven’t already done so. I will love to keep in touch with you that way! The plein air works are posted there, including a photo of the location, and the painting in progress. It’s pretty informative, so check it out.
If you would like to join in any of the plain air sessions, I believe we can manage that in a safe way. All the while, I will be helping you learn the wonderful art of painting from life and on location.

Silvia Trujillo Announces Art Events

Silvia Trujillo flyer for SO Art Show & Sale 2020

There are a few upcoming events I would like to share with you :
The first one is the ​2nd Annual So Oregon Art Sho​w being held at the Medford First Christian Church on Crater Lake Ave in Medford. I will be there with some of my latest work, and I’m planning on doing caricatures for those who would like to pose for a few minutes. There is going to be a great variety of art by some of So Oregon’s finest! So come on out and say “hi”!
Then there is:
Silvia Trujillo demonstrates watercolor painting techniques
On Sunday, March 22 from 12-2pm join myself, and 2 other artists who will be doing a painting demo to the live music of Peter Stone at the Art & Soul Gallery in Ashland. These events are super fun and informative. Past attendees really enjoyed themselves!
And on Sunday March 29

Local artists discuss the evolution of their art over the years and present digital photos of their work at a monthly Art Salon held on the last Sunday of every month at the Ashland Library.

Come and see slides of over 20 years of work! I’m looking forward to presenting years of images that I’ve produced along the West Coast and New Mexico. I’m looking forward to be able to see them on the “big screen.” It’ll be fun!
Time:
02:00PM – 03:00PM
Location:
Gresham Room, Ashland Library
Will love to see you at any one of these events!,
Silvia

Update from Silvia Trujillo

Although we need rain desperately, I have been taking advantage of the dry weather by doing lots of plein air work. Several students and I have discovered new places to paint, and have had lots of fun doing it! Consider joining us while the warm weather lasts. It’s really not that difficult, and it is a great way to loosen up if you’ve been feeling like your paintings seem kind of tight lately.
 The ongoing classes I’m offering (Wednesdays from 2–4pm) at Scrappy Craft are going well. There is a core group of artists who attend classes regularly, each working individually and coming up with some intriguing paintings. Plus, Scrappy Craft offers a discount to students who attend classes there. I must say, I’m super impressed with the extensive inventory of “top brand” art supplies; and all at comparable pricing to the big box stores! Come on over and check it out. I have room for more students in this space. It’s a large, well lit classroom – $30 drop-in, or 4 classes/ $100.
Since classes are ongoing, you may start at any time, and complete a 4 class series within a 6 week time frame. *We will not be meeting 11/27, 12/25, or 1/1
Best wishes to all,
Silvia

Silvia Trujillo Featured Artist at Art & Soul!

Silvia Trujillo Featured Artist at Art & Soul Gallery!

Land of My Heart exhibit on display through August

First Friday reception August 2, 2019

Tonight is the reception for my featured artist show at the Art & Soul Gallery in Ashland. If you’re in the area, I would love for you to stop by and say hello. There are large new works, as well as smaller plein air studies completed this year. I’m thrilled to have this display of everything in one place! If you can’t make it tonight, the show will be up for the month of August, so stop by when you can.
For those of you who are out of the area, several of these works are concurrently available in my eBay store. Depending on what sells during the show, work that isn’t spoken for will be listed on eBay, and can be shipped directly to you with a 100% money back guarantee (if for any reason you’re not completely satisfied). I realize that acquiring art online is not ideal. However, more and more this is the way that most collectors are bringing my art into their homes or are giving it as gifts for special occasions.

More about Silvia’s Exhibit

“Land of My Heart” is one artist’s discovery of homeland. To Silvia Trujillo, it’s a place that is both physical and spiritual, a connection found in land, sky, water and light. In masterful impressionistic style rendered in oils, Trujillo captures scenes from across Southern Oregon and Northern California that are both familiar and otherworldly, scenes that help us examine our own concept of “home.”

Silvia Trujillo, a recipient of a 2019 Haines & Friends grant lives, breaths and sleeps art. As a painting and art instructor for over 25 years, she takes great joy in fostering expert work in new and established artists.

“It’s my goal to honor land, water, and sky in my paintings and to create a need for preserving an area’s natural beauty.” – Silvia Trujillo

First Friday Reception: August 2 from 5 – 8 pm with Music by Doug Ross

Douglass Ross is a Rogue Valley native, with an original approach to a folk instrument common in the southeastern United States, the dulcimer.
