Painting Workshop Description
Over 3 days, create a personal masterpiece from the ground up, using essential painting and composition skills and a design-driven methodology. Working with a range of art materials and a focus on form, color, and texture, apply principles and aesthetic considerations of good design to your project. Explore the art and science of color mixing, glazing, and popular textural techniques at your personal interest level and pace. No need for art materials, tools etcetera – all are conveniently provided.
Catered lunches, healthy snacks, and a daily Happy Hour Social at the conclusion of each day, are an ideal balance of creative expression and socializing in a safe, collaborative environment.This workshop is appropriate for the beginner to experienced painter alike, and strives to meet you where you are in your personal practice and stage of painting experience. The outline of this workshop is loosely patterned after the traditional Atelier model, where a professional painter works with a small number of students to train them in visual fine arts. We've developed a meaningfully structured practicum with many different learning levels in mind, to challenge students of all backgrounds and skill levels within a single class. This enables students to focus on personal learning goals of their choice and discretion in a safe and nurturing environment, without the pressure to produce great art. This lightly free-form approach supports students returning again and again, for the purposes of honing key skills and maturing overall painting expertise and experience.
