This painting workshop is for artists at all levels who would like to explore their vision in oil or water-based painting media. It is structured to allow students the time and freedom to individually explore those aspects of painting that interest them, including realism, abstraction and experimentation. Beginning painters will receive instruction on basic painting fundamentals. Advanced students and abstract painters will be encouraged to define their visual sensibility while honing technical painting skills. Models will be available for each session, and all students will be supported in developing their critical and conceptual thinking, regardless of style or subject matter. NOTE: The first session will include a discussion of non-toxic painting options, and a supply list will be distributed.
