Lewandowski to conduct artist workshop in Chicago

Artist E.P. Lewandowski of Michigan has been selected to teach a drawing seminar by the Colored Pencil Society of America Chicago Chapter 103.

The event, entitled “Rocks and Waterscape Settings,” is slated for Nov. 9-10 in Palatine, Ill. Participants will have an opportunity to learn about steps in foundation planning, tonal use, detailing, color [overlay], applications, structure development and composition.

“I continue to be very proactive in my professional career as an artist and view this as opportunity to expand my teaching skills,” Lewandowski said. “In preparation for the class, I decided to purchase and construct a living indoor waterfall and stream assembly. This unit is portable, expandable, and currently measures over 12-feet long, 3-feet in width, and 2-feet or more in height. The prospect of using this assembly for a teaching workshop is appealing for me and unique in concept.”

The artist is also slated to host additional workshops on Feb. 8, 2014 at Art in the Loft in Alpena, and on Sept. 27-28, 2014 at the MIDWEST 2014 Competition in Mt. Clemens. This special event is sponsored by the Colored Pencil Society of America Detroit Chapter 104 and includes a juried competition for artists residing in a 16 state region of the Midwest.

Lewandowski is a contemporary realist who specializes in colored pencil landscape and waterscape settings from across the North America. His work has appeared in American Art Collector, Colored Pencil Magazine and CP Magazine.

The artist is a member of the International Guild of Realism, ARC Salon, Colored Pencil Society of America, C.P.S.A. Detroit Chapter 104, and Pencil Society. He is represented nationally and in his home state of Michigan.

Lewandowski and his wife, Mary, reside along the Thunder Bay shoreline in Northeast Michigan. For more information, go to www.erwinplewandowski.
