good morning everybody. walter allen in for charley belcher this morning. we're at the dunedin fine arts? with lorraine. lorraine, you are instructor of, this had a whole big giant
8:22 am
student abstract acrylic expressionism. i also teach intro to pastels reason we're talk to you tomorrow they have big open house which starts at 10 o'clock. that's where you can buy all pottery by way. here, is one the demos that will be going on. this where people can come and see everything that the dunedin fine arts center has to offer. and you will be given a demo about this. so what are you agoing to be telling folks tomorrow? basically the way i teach my classes, and i have some of my students here, and it's all about painting abstractly. and there's two different kinds of abstract. there is figure active which basically it looks like something. and then there is this, which is nonobjective. which is basically composition color, shapes and value. and each week in our class, we talk about a different way to start a painting. how do you start? you have blank canvas what do you do. so tomorrow in the demo aring
8:23 am
blank canvas how do you get started. big tip the cap to photo journalist tiptoeing around land mines trying to not knock over this hard work in here. how do you get started? i mean do you have to have a picture right there? >> you don't. you don't have a picture. but this particular picture here is a photo shopped version of a still life that we worked from a week ago. and this shows you that you can work from a painting within a pa much. it was probably a corn stalk in the still life. and photo shopped it just makes an interesting abstract. so i work from that as the class did. and just look for shapes and values and invent the colors that you happen to like that work in your composition. beautiful thing about this is, you use all sorts of things. one artist over here she was using credit cards to make sure you have straight lines. you were using your fingers you
8:24 am
what we do each week i'll demonstrate again tomorrow is you can use pallet knife a brush, your fingers, it's really trying to loosen up your technique. if anybody comes in and says i think too tight. that's the class they want to take. and they can see a little bit of that demo tomorrow. and i think also you don't have to be married to the picture if you start making something like you were mentioning off camera earlier something that was supposed to be i don't know, starting to look leak tree or turn it sideways it looks like something else you can make absolutely. absolutely. you start it one way. and it's just the basic elements of composition and shape and value. and all of sudden, something may appear or by turning it, it looks like something else. and you work on it that way for a while. and then the class is very instructive as well. everybody will look and say i really like it better that way. did you think about maybe lighter here or darker here. so it's really a collaborative effort. and we do positive critiques which means we talk about what's
8:25 am
versus saying something negative. and there's always something working in painting always something gelling that will turn into a great painting. i wish we had positive critiques. i can help out with that. okay. thank you we'll bring you on do positive critiques thank you so much. so for the demos that will start same time pottery 10 o'clock but only go until 2 >> that's right. here dunedin fine arts center we will go back ove things they are going to have this weekend on top of the pottery that includes jewelry as well also glass blowing and all of this other interesting stuff. if you're market to do to get some christmas gifts out to friends or family, this is the place to be, guys. >> all right. looks good. thanks, walter. see you later on. >> it is a moment that changed america. the bombing of pearl harbor. 75 years later. a man who survived it is going back. alcides is going to share his story. plus a barbie for everyone.

here to the kale. the kale when we put the plugs they were still pretty tight. if you look down here you can actually see that there's one and a one plant growing out of this hole. see how there's two plants. nice thing about this we call a gleaning you're going to get a little bit of harvest outdoing this. first thing we will do come through and thin out plants. here's another bunch of kale right here. that as you can see is just too tightly packed. because i'm gleaning i'm going to actually going to take bigger one and have a little bit of more of harvest.
