A lifelong outdoorsman, painter Jim Bortz relates experiences in the field through his art. With a bold impressionistic style built on a solid foundation of drawing skills, Bortz’s work strikes a balance of honest believability with an adventurous palette. Jim makes his home in Cody, Wyoming near the east entrance of Yellowstone National Park. Here, he has access to all the subjects he loves to paint. Exploring the wild places of the Rocky Mountain West provides endless inspiration

His work has appeared regularly in the Buffalo Bill Art Show and has been included in the prestigious Birds In Art exhibit. The Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum has several pieces in its permanent collection. Bortz’s work has also been featured in Western Art and Architecture, Sporting Classics, and Fine Art Connoisseur magazines.

Workshop Materials List

1. Clay – Chavant Le Beau Touche. Get the regular clay, not HM (high melt).
2. Clay warming devices, a metal bucket with a clamp on heat lamp or 100 W bulb works great.
3. Tie wire.
4. Aluminum foil.
5. Scissors.
6. Favorite sculpture tools.
7. Plank of wood (pine) approximately 8″ x 8″ x 2″.
Bring as many planks as you wish…the wood is used as the base for your sculpture.
8. Plumber’s pipe, 1/2″ threaded: Bring several different lengths…up to 10″…not PVC pipe.
Plumber’s pipe T joint.
Plumber’s pipe couplers.
Plumber’s pipe flange.
9. Screws and screwdriver to secure the flange to wood…this may be done before you arrive. (Place flange in the center of plank)
10. Wire cutters
11. Needle nose pliers
12. Rubber mallet.
13. Spatula
14. Measuring devices such as rulers, measuring tape, dividers, and calipers.
15. Because we concentrate on BIRDS IN FLIGHT, live models in the classroom are more distracting than useful. I will demonstrate the technique of constructing a cantilevered bird armature that can be used for many different bird species and will show you how to assemble shapes to capture the “gist” of the specific bird.
16. Bird field guides such as Peterson, Stokes, Golden, or Sibley. Sibley’s Guide to Birds (not Sibley’s Guide to Bird Life and Behavior) is best if bringing only one field guide. This popular book can usually be purchased at any bookstore.
17. Bring your laptop to the class if possible.
18. Bring your sketchbook.
