Painting: Botanicals As Journal
August 30, 2018 – September 2, 2018
The goal of this workshop is to use the subject matter of florals and botanicals as a vehicle to explore student’s inner movements, gestures and dialogues. Each morning you will spend time outdoors foraging for plant life, and bring your findings back into the studio for study. Through painting and mixed media, you will practice letting your natural instincts work for the painting rather than against it – literally using who you are to further the process of art-making. There will be a spirit of openness, so that students can listen carefully to their surroundings and stories. The goal is to better understand the many techniques of painting, but mostly to better understand yourself. Open to all skill levels.
COURSE FEE: $340
