“The Western experience is one of contradictions as we navigate between modern progress and pure wildness. Geographically rooted in the West, I intend to bridge the gap between traditional and contemporary. Using the classical approach, I apply the tools that have been tried and tested through the centuries; patterns of light and dark, color theories, and techniques to create illusions of space. However, I find the modern approach to lend the freedom I need to express the intuitive sense of place; color fields, expressive mark layering, and textures that unite the painted surface. I honor the infinite beauty of this land, while striving to lend a relevant voice in these modern times.”

Chula Beauregard is an award-winning artist, born and raised in the mountains of Colorado. After graduating cum laude as a Studio Art major from Whitman College, she served for two years in Gabon, Central Africa as a Peace Corps volunteer. Later, she earned her Master’s in Education to teach Fine Art. In 2008, she began her professional painting career, studying with master landscape painter Skip Whitcomb. Her work has been featured several years in the American Impressionist Society Annual Juried National Exhibition. In 2020 Chula participated in the American Women Artists National Exhibit, GA, where she won the Fine Art Connoisseur Award. When she is not in her studio, in Steamboat Springs, CO, she can be found wandering the West with her family of two boys and adventure-loving husband.

“Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul.” ~ John Muir

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.
