Free shuttle leaves the Art Students League at 9:00 am and leaves Vytlacil at 5:00 pm to return back to the Art Students League before 6:00 pm. You must have registered for the workshop to use the shuttle. Please notify security that you wish to be on the shuttle and they will notify you when it arrives.

Color relationships, design, composition, simplifying all that information, and the benefits of outdoor painting will be discussed. We will focus on massing in shapes, values, color, brushwork and edges while working wet into wet in order to complete a painting in one session.

Dean Hartung studied at Kent State University in Ohio; the School of the Art Institute of Chicago; the Cleveland Institute of Art; and the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture.  He assisted Jack Beal on several large paintings, including the mosaic subway mural commission in NYC. Dean attended the La Napoule Art Foundation on a fellowship and was invited to paint at the Forbes Trinchera Ranch in Colorado. His paintings are in private and public collections. He has exhibited in a number of galleries and museums and has been commissioned to create several important murals, including nine murals for Montefiore Hospital and six murals for the Delaware County Courthouse. He has taught at several institutions including the New York Academy of Art, the National Academy of Design, Penn State University, Swarthmore College and Community College of Philadelphia. He received special recognition from the Ohio House of Representatives in 1998.
