Robert Hagan, a master Australian artist and founder of the Ezyart method of painting, instructed local artists and artists from California, Utah and Oregon in a three-day workshop held at the Teweepuu Center in Orofino Aug. 11-13.
Hagan is known for his expressive impressionist style of painting. He also hosted a 10-part travel painting series called “Splash of Color” which aired on the Discovery channel in 2010.
Norma Lee Pfaff, president of Central Idaho Art Association and artist from Kamiah, was instrumental in arranging for Hagan’s workshop in Idaho. Hagan, who currently lives in Thailand, was in awe of the beauty of north central Idaho, particularly the Highway 12 corridor and vows to return.
“We had a group of happy artists who look forward to another workshop possibly next year. Robert gave us each the attention we needed to push our skills to a new level,” said Pfaff.
