This advanced painting workshop provides a unique opportunity to open up your practice and push yourself to experiment. Driven by risk-taking and chance, paintings begin with formal, structural or linguistic parameters. From there the direction each work takes is up to the student. Multiple paintings are worked on each day alongside daily group critiques and individual discussions. Formal and conceptual concerns are explored as the group focuses on how these ideas can inform each artist’s individual painting practice.

Media & Techniques:

Students may work in oil and/or acrylic on canvas. If oil paint is preferred, a fast-drying medium such as Galkyd Lite is recommended. Other materials to be used on canvas are welcome


Students paint, critique and discuss work every day. Painting continues outside of class as well.
