This is a preview of what Camacho’s workshops will be like next year, when he plans to teach painting classes at Gualala Arts Center.

Come learn something new!

“As a painting instructor, my mission is to provide students with the foundation necessary to be creative. My goal is to assist students in capturing the particular mood of the moment and to express themselves in a bold and colorful way, while capturing the beauty and spontaneity of nature,” Camacho says.

“My workshops are very hands-on, with an emphasis on easel side critiques. I believe that giving instruction is important, but showing students how this instruction applies to their individual work is crucial. Based on the student’s level and goals, I develop a program for improving each individual’s ability as a painter.”

Method of Instruction:
• Demos
• Hands On
• Instruction at the Students Easel
• Group Critiques

Elio Camacho is currently represented in galleries throughout the United States.

“The works have a looseness and spontaneity that goes beyond just rendering every detail.”
Bonnie Gangelhoff – Southwest Art Magazine, Artist to Watch July, 2009

“At Leipers Creek (Gallery) you can also see landscapes by Elio Camacho that are very appealing, beautifully done, but quite innovative.”  — Gary English, Nashville Arts Magazine March, 2009
