ACRYLIC Workshop - Oil Painters Welcome
"EMBRACE the PRACTICE: Daily Painting"
July 8-9, 2020
9:30am - 4:30pm
This two day intensive workshop will embrace the painting process and the importance of daily practice as a path to improving creativity and image making skills. Over the course of the workshop students will paint many panels, guided by an artist who has made over 3600 daily, consecutive, paintings - so far! A combination of demos, in-class assignments and individual instruction will teach students techniques to create fresh, deliberate marks. The class will delve into the principles of design, composition, value, and color and will examine color mixing, mark making, and personal voice. Using acrylic paint students will discover approaches to simplify the process of painting and ways to stay inspired and motivated. Lastly, we will discuss practical strategies for painting every day (or almost every day).
