Artist William Maurer began his formal training at Pratt Institute in 1955. He later received a Master of Architecture degree from Harvard University and entered the premiere class of the École Superieure des Beaux Arts in Paris. A native of New York City, he has resided part-time in France since 1962. He had his own architectural offices in Morocco during 1970-80 and traveled extensively throughout North Africa.

 

The artist has always enjoyed painting as an extension of the architectural experience. When you look at Bill’s beautifully rendered paintings and see the expert use of clean, subtle color along with the precise appointment of his brush, it will be no surprise to learn that before retiring from his firm in Morocco, he was an international architect.

Maurer has painted subjects throughout the world and continues to find an interesting genre to draw from. Living in Cannes, France during the summer months and in Fernandina Beach, Florida during the remainder of the year, gives him ample opportunity to paint the quaint, charming street and boat scenes that he has become well-known for. He says he “Paints in an impressionist manner, constantly experimenting with color and technique; always searching for free expression, taking liberty with design and composition.”

 

 

                                     

                           

                                   

 We will start each day with 30 minutes of instruction.  Weather permitting, we will paint “plein air” in the immediate vicinity of the IAA Art Education Center, i.e., RR Depot, Shrimp Docks, Villa las Palmas, Palace Saloon, etc.  In case of inclement weather, we will paint in the studio with preselected sketches or photos.  A syllabus will be sent to all participants.  In addition, please remember to bring outdoor gear, easel and/or folding stool, sketch box, sun and insect protection, etc.   To register contact:     A $100 nonrefundable deposit will guarantee your spot.   Enjoy the historic ambience, beautiful weather and friendly downtown atmosphere while experiencing the fun of “plein air” painting!  

This internationally prominent artist conducts annual workshops in the U.S. as well as France.   He began his career as an architect, training at Pratt Institute in NY, attended Ecole Superieure de Beaux Arts in Paris and Harvard University.  He is author of the locally best selling coffee table book, “Sketches of Amelia Island and Fernandina Beach.”  Bill and wife, Kathy, are members of the Island Art Association.
