b.1965

An avid fisherman and all around outdoorsman, Scott Yeager offers a visual diary of his love for the outdoors through his paintings. Firsthand experience of the subject is at the core of his work, and he creates a constant flow of plein-air paintings as a result. Many of these stand on their own as works of art, and many are the springboard for more developed and larger works in the studio.

In his youth, Scott filled sketchbooks with drawings and paintings of plants, animals and all things of the natural world that inspire him. He could often be found seated beside a marsh or river with a field scope and a sketchpad, studying the forms and rhythms of waterfowl. In his adulthood, Scott studied at the Scottsdale Artists School in Arizona, and has sought individual study with other artists.

Scott has exhibited in the Scottsdale Art Auction, the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum’s well known “Birds in Art” exhibition; he has been judged into the Arts for the Parks exhibition sponsored by the National Parks Academy of the Arts, and he has been selected to exhibit in several shows at the Bennington Center for the Arts in Vermont including: “Impressions of New England” and “Small Works and Art of the Animal Kingdom”.

Scott’s travels take him to many parts of the country form Maine in the East, to Alaska in the West. Most of his favorite destinations are in the Rocky Mountains and the Southwest. Scott resides in Woodland Park, Colorado with his wife Marie and their son Joseph.

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.
