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.

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

Update from Silvia Trujillo

Silvia Trujillo plein air paintings withstudents

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
