Central Art is proud to announce a FREE [in-person] painting event:
“The Baumann Effect” presented by Stefan Baumann
Live in-person demo Thursday, May 6 2021 From 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm at Central Art
“Fundamentals – What Every Artist Should Know”


“The Baumann Effect”  is new series of classes/workshops based on Stefan Baumann’s successful YouTube channel and his PBS Painting Show “The Grand View”. This FREE introduction lecture and demonstration will be presented Thursday, May 6 from 2:00 to 4:00pm in-person at Central Art and is open to the public.

During the introduction, Baumann will introduce his 12 Keys to Painting demonstrating many proven keys that will improve your painting instantly, and set your painting on the path to success.

These lively talks will be part of an overall series that dives into “The Baumann Effect” and answers questions that many instructors fail to address. There is so much more to painting than color, value, and drawing. In this series, Baumann will explore the secrets to painting with the audience.

Through the study, exploration and evaluation of mastering art in Baumann’s lectures, along with your participation, you will discover not only your style but your core – the essence of why you paint. Students are encouraged to bring a painting for critique and a list of questions that they wish to have answered.

1,264 Reasons To Get Excited
About Art This Spring!


Well, there’s probably a lot more reasons than that, but if we’re going to put a number on it, it’s probably because we’re so excited about the newest thing to hit our shelves here at Central Art: Fabriano’s “1264” art pads! Fabriano has been at the foundation of the fine art papers industry for 750 years, and their latest line of pads is a testament to that long tradition of quality. Featuring a full line of papers for just about every medium (including watercolor and mixed media), you’re sure to find a surface that will suit whatever type of drawing or painting medium you love.

But that’s not all we’re buzzing about this season – for the first time ever, we’re pleased to formally announce the debut of Central Art Gallery, a new art exhibition space housed within our newly-remodeled and beautifully updated creative workspace. In addition to hosting several classes and workshops by local talented instructors, this space now will also serve as a premier gallery space for local shows and art-related venues featuring the works of Southern Oregon’s wide array of creative talent!

We’re also keeping things “lively” with our virtual presence – join us for Central Art’s Facebook Live stream Fridays at 1:00pm every other week, and keep up-to-date on everything new happening in our store – from brand new products and mini-demos to special online events and announcements – you’ll hear about it here first! New in 2021, we’ve teamed up with some of our product reps to go live with us and lend their expertise, tips and answer your questions about art materials!

If Facebook isn’t your thing, be sure to keep an eye on the “Events & Classes” page on our website for upcoming in-person and virtual lectures, workshops, demos and more! It’s time to get excited!

  • Don’t have a printed coupon to take in with you when you shop? No problem! Our newsletter (both printed and online) will contain a Coupon Code whenever we have a new one in effect, like our January Coupon below:
