January Studio Handbook 2019


Open your painting practice to new possibilities in an intensive workshop designed for painters who wish to push their work to new levels. We participate in engaging studio time and focused critiques. Students work on their own self-directed prompts and projects amidst one-on-one and group discussions and critiques structured by the instructor, highlighting color choices, the treatment of surface and other elements of painting that affect content. Demonstrations, prompts and conversations take place in class to foster discourse and strengthen praxes. Students are encouraged to bring a digital portfolio of their work as a stepping-stone to opening up a dialogue about the form and content within their paintings.

Media & Techniques:

Students are encouraged to work with their own choice of paint such as acrylic, oil, etc., and/or other media and should bring the materials needed to make their work to class.


We engage in discussions, slide lectures on contemporary art and art history, prompts, ample studio time, one-on-one and group critiques. We review work you are interested in continuing within your own practice or you are welcome to start fresh with a new body of work.


Rubens Ghenov was born in Sao Paulo, Brazil, and immigrated to the United States in 1989.
