Master Class: Advanced Painting: Making and Dialog
This advanced painting workshop is for students working in any medium and is designed to be a catalyst for making art within a broadly-defined painting language. Students work on individual projects while digging into experimental processes that boost the forward momentum of their work. Presentations, prompts, and critiques support purposeful discussions that address how work is communicating. Questions and topics covered include: How can time be captured through color? What is tactile knowledge? Who are your art ancestors, and what is their role in the building of your visual language? What and how does your work communicate within the context of contemporary art? Students are asked to bring a digital portfolio of current studio work. Please submit your portfolio by January 27th for priority consideration. Portfolios will continue to be accepted on a rolling basis. Instructions on how to submit your portfolio are as follows: Submit digital images of your work in one single PDF (as opposed to individual JPG attachments) via email directly to Artistic Director Liz Ferrill at firstname.lastname@example.org The single PDF must be less than 10 MB to be considered. Include 5-10 images of your work with image identification that lists the title, media, dimensions and year of each image. While not required, it is helpful to see an artist statement addressing the images you send. Include “Advanced Portfolio Review” in the subject line of your email, as well as the title of the workshop for which you are applying. Please provide a phone number where you can be reached and a link to your website. Submissions that do not follow the requested directions will not be reviewed. To be considered, we must receive portfolios by 5 PM MST Friday, Feb. 10th, 2023. If we receive your materials after Feb. 10th, you will be considered on a space-available basis. We will email you regarding your status on or before Friday, Feb. 24, 2023. If you are accepted, a deposit of $650 will be required within one week of notification of acceptance to hold your place. Housing will be assigned on a space-available basis upon enrollment.
