Weekend Workshop (November 15-16)
Saturday 9 am–4 pm

Non-Credit / Tuition: $150
*Workshop

This workshop will introduce you to the materials and techniques of painting with oil-based paint. The workshop will begin with demonstrations, followed by individual and group critiques of your work as you learn how to develop a painting from start to finish. Lessons will cover blending and shading, the color wheel, using value, hue and chroma, shapes and composition, as well as the tools of the trade such as brushes, mediums and painting surfaces. Students will be encouraged to energetically explore the lineage of artists who have developed the language of the practice and explore the singularities and ruptures in the practice including the impact of contemporary technologies. Students should expect to enhance their formal vocabulary, including their skills at controlling color and form. There will be regular discussions and group critiques and students will be supported and encouraged to articulate critical views of their work and the work of other painters.
