Let’s discover approaches to fill a big canvas.
This two-day intensive workshop combines demos, in-class assignments and individual instruction to teach students the techniques to create fresh, deliberate marks on a big canvas.
Using observational painting as our launching point, we’ll embark each day with energetic painting exercises designed to tap into each participant’s personal voice. The practice of working direct from life results in a heightened awareness and a lasting impression of the moment. Combining still life and interior painting, we’ll paint freer and bolder and let our personalities inspire what we see in our immediate surroundings. Through painting and observational exercises we’ll analyze what influences our choices and how to incorporate our personal voice in our work.
Using acrylic paints students discover approaches to fill a big canvas.
