Overcome the challenges within your artistic practice and heighten your craft. This three-year mentored study provides critiques that are intense, responsive and specific. Participants identify the strengths and limitations of their work and practice, reenergizing skill sets. This course is most useful for artists with considerable painting experience and familiarity with contemporary practices.


Students use paint, charcoal or enamel on canvas, but there are no limitations. Students can bring works-in-progress or start new work during the workshop.


The focus is on studio time, which is supported by slide presentations, readings, short daily writing assignments, discussions and critiques driven by faculty questions and students’ paintings.
