b.1953

Lanny resides near the small Western Slope town of Silt, Colorado-not far from where he grew up on his father’s ranch in Peach Valley. Family camping & fishing trips that became sketching trips were early artistic efforts as Lanny developed a love for the high country of Colorado the West. Mostly self-taught, he began oil painting at the age of ten and developed as a fine artist through dedicated work and practice. Lanny met New Mexico artist Ben Turner in 1965 and was impressed with Turner’s ability to paint mountain landscapes. After high school Grant attended Adams State College in Alamosa, Colorado in 1971-1972 where he gained a knowledge of art history and studied life drawing.

During his study at Adams State, Grant made frequent trips to New Mexico, gaining an appreciation for the early master painters of the Taos and Santa Fe area. Grant studied portrait painting with Dallas artist Ramon Froman during the summers of 1972, 1973 and 1974 in Cloudcroft, New Mexico. Froman’s teaching concentrated on five solid fundamentals of painting: Observation, Drawing, Design, Values, and Color. Grant focused on these principles and has evolved his own style of painting from Nature. Other artists that influenced Lanny were Conrad Schwiering, and Greg McHuron- both dedicated plein air artists that lived in Jackson, Wyoming. Grant has devoted many years to plein air painting, resulting in his accurate translations of the many moods of the high country. Always drawn to remote and wild places, Grant continues to explore new areas to paint, including the vast Wind River Range in Wyoming and other areas of the West.

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.

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.
