Drawing & Painting Summer Session 6
July 31–August 12
Painting What You See
This oil painting workshop will be a journey into the unknown waters of our visual perception. We’ll work with models and still lifes with the intent of seeing the world as interlocking planes of light, color, line, and shadow rather than separate and nameable subjects. In the first half of the workshop, we’ll mix a limited palette and explore multiple approaches to starting a painting. In the second half, we’ll spend longer sessions working from one point of view. We’ll allow our work to evolve freely without fear of repainting or starting over. Come ready to paint, play, and exchange impressions of what we see together. All levels.
