Instructor: Mary Hunt
Michele Denton assisting

Students will learn the importance of value (lights, darks, mid-tones) in drawing and painting and  how values relate to color for dynamic paintings in a variety of artistic styles
including representational, impressionistic and abstract painting.

They will have the opportunity to experience the fun and excitement of using color when value and intensity are used for full effect.

about the instructor
Mary Hunt

Upon moving to western Nebraska from Colorado over twenty years ago, Mary Hunt never dreamed it would be here that she found her artistic voice. Discovery of an abundance of Native American artifacts in museums and private collection in the area intrigued her. Having been introduced to Native art and artifacts at a very young age in her home state of Minnesota, Hunt had always held a fascination for the colors and designs of the work. After working in various mediums and formats without satisfaction she began experimenting in combining birds and natural elements with artifacts in a still life format and found the subject matter that continues to drive her passion to this day.

Hunt currently shows her work in various shows throughout the year as well as galleries in South Dakota and New Mexico, Prairie Edge in Rapid City (prairieedge.com) and Little Bird at Loretto in Santa Fe (littlebirdatloretto.com) She is also a signature member of the Artists of the Black Hills a group of artists formed over ten years ago to promote the arts in the Black Hills area.

Hunt continues to be excited and inspired by her subject matter and strives to portray the beauty of God's creation in an intimate way through her paintings.
Hunt continues to teach art to students, and for the Federal Junior Duck Stamp Competition.
