4-day Workshop

$170 members / $205 non-members

Using a photo reference of their choice, students will use both traditional and non-traditional painting techniques to help students alchemize their image into the world of painting rather than merely imitate a photo. 
Students will focus on activating the surface of their painting utilizing various paint applications and color relationships. The class will also focus on narrative intention and visual rhythm while inventing and experimenting throughout the process. At a certain point, the photo reference will be put to the side and the painting will become the focal point.  Final paintings will include both direct and nuanced indirect painting methods capturing the student's chosen subject in a manner that goes beyond a photo-realistic image.  This class is for both Oil and Acrylic painters.
