DATES: July 6 – 17, 2015
SKILL LEVEL: III
CONCEPT: Driven by risk-taking and chance, this two-week, advanced painting workshop provides an extended opportunity to open up your practice and push yourself to experiment. Students work intuitively within a rigorous conceptual structure on multiple paintings each day. Paintings begin with loose formal or structural parameters and from there, the direction is up to you. Multiple group critiques and individual discussions address the formal and conceptual concerns that emerge from this spontaneous way of working and how these ideas inform each artist’s individual painting practice.
MEDIA & TECHNIQUES: Students primarily use paint, oil and/or acrylic, on canvas. If oil paint is used, students may choose to use a quick-drying medium such as Galkyd or Galkyd Lite. Other materials to be used on canvas are welcome.
ACTIVITIES: We paint and critique and/or discuss work every day. Painting also continues outside of class.
