Overcome the challenges that present themselves in your artistic practice, and heighten your craft in this three-year mentored study. This workshop explores questions brought forth by you regarding your work, resulting in critiques that are intense, responsive and specific. We identify the strengths and limitations of your current work and practice, and then re-energize your skill set. In addition, you should expect to work outside of the workshop. This course is most useful for artists who have considerable painting experience, especially for those familiar with contemporary practices and theory.

Media & Techniques:

You are welcome to use materials of your choice. Typically, students use paint, charcoal or enamel on canvas, but there are no limitations. Feel free to bring works already in progress or start with new work during the workshop. Drying time and size should be considered in relation to shipping.


We primarily focus on studio time, which is then supported by slide presentations, discussions and critiques driven by instructor questions and students’ paintings. Readings and short daily writing assignments are also part of the course work.
