Dallas Mayer, an Oklahoma ranch lady, who also happens to be an artist, works in three mediums: watercolor, pastel, and oil, which is her preferred medium. When Dallas is not painting, she is out helping on her family’s Oklahoma Centennial Ranch where she gets most of her inspiration and ideas to paint. At the young age of 17, Dallas was fortunate to start her art studies under the direction of Dord Fitz in 1979. She took lessons from Jack Sorenson and Glen Lyle at the Fowler Art Center as well as the Baker Art Center.

Amarillo Art Institute has given Dallas the opportunity to continue art studies with quality instructors Ramon Kelly, Chuck Olsen, Anita Louise West, Harold Scott, Danny Gamble, Linda Glover Gooch, Max Stewart, Lee Lester, Rose Edin, Richard Alan Nichols, Guido Frick, Emin Abassov, Arleta Peck, Mickey Wells, Joshua Sorenson, Yvonne Sangster, Ned Mueller, Lorenzo Chavez, and Mike Mahon.

¬Through the years, Dallas has enjoyed working with people to help them display their treasured photographs in albums. Her hobbies include genealogy, flying, snow skiing, writing, and also treasure hunting for relics and projectile points.

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

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.
