The enlightening demonstration in oils will be using photographs to paint a person in an outdoor setting in an impressionist style, and share tips on the process used to create such creative art works.

Balderas grew up in Torrance, Calif., and lived only a few miles from the ocean, which has made nature, along with his family, the main inspiration of his paintings. Balderas attended Loyola Marymount University, where he studied film production and art. After graduating, he worked several years for NBC Productions and helped make many made-for-television movies. He then began studying under the tutelage of his photographer father, as well as Joseph Mendez, master painter and teacher. Balderas considers the time spent studying with Mendez to be the cornerstone of his growth as a painter, and has also been influenced by many painters in this area.

Lunch is included and the address will be provided upon registration. Space is limited and registration in required in advance: The fee is $15 for Rancho Santa Fe Art Guild members and $30 for non-members.RSVP via email to rsfartguild@gmail.com. Carpooling is advised due to limited parking.
