b.1942 - 2003

Spending his childhood on a farm in the mountains of North Carolina, Dean St. Clair is a painter of western subject matter including animals and still lifes with rural objects such as lanterns and buckets.

He studied at the Harris Art School in Nashville, Tennessee, where he also earned his living as an illustrator. He studied watercolor with local painter, Janice Pollard, and experimented with a free-hand, monochromatic airbrush method using sepia ink on illustration board. This technique has become his trademark. In 1983, he and his wife Linda, moved to New Mexico where he paints the cattle drives and other aspects of western life in which he has participated. The couple live in Taos.

He has had paintings in the Arts for the Parks Top 100 and has won awards from the National Watercolor Society, the Salmagundi Club, and the Mountain Oyster Show in Tucson. His work has also been exhibited in the Rising Stars Show at the Desert Caballeros Museum, as well as a one-person show at the Rio Grande County Museum, and a two-person show at Koshare Indian Museum.

Dean St. Clair died December 25, 2003 from complications from flu.

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.
