Mike Albrechtsen Painting Seminar Well Reviewed
A Painting seminar by Mike Albrechtsen this past Sunday was very well received by all attendees. The seminar, part of PaintAmerica's education mission, was held at Westboro Fine Arts gallery in Topeka, Kansas. It was limited to only 12 participants, so that all attendees could get up close and personal with Mike and his demonstration painting. Participants came from as far as 235 miles away to see Mike's demonstration, and based on comments received, all took away some important information that they felt would make them better artists.
Albrechtsen has painted all over the country, and his works are sought after by many collectors. He teaches at the Scottsdale Art School and the Fredericksburg Art School. His work is in major galleries across the country. He was in Topeka as a juror for the 2008 PaintAmerica Top100 art competition, and graciously agreed to provide this important seminar and demonstration for PaintAmerica.
