Painting Without Fear
September 24 – 28, 2012
Sedona Arts Center
(5 days 9am-4pm)
TUITION: $ 500 (plus $50 materials fee includes all materials)
This workshop will give you a “virtual toolbox” of basic techniques and familiarity with the materials for painting with oils and acrylics. We will explore still-life and landscape painting directly and ways to use photography as a creative tool.
At mid-week, after having done a number of projects with exposure to various techniques for painting, students begin a project focusing on the issue of composition. Students will be guided through a unique process for developing a landscape or still-life motif or students can choose to work on a collage process that will become the “subject matter” for the final painting. In either case students will learn a way to explore compositional possibilities creatively before becoming entangled in the process of “making a painting”.
Each student will work with their own personal studio space within the larger classroom coming together for shared learning and guided group critique. Step-by-step projects will lead to surprising results in an atmosphere of fun and discovery. Lots of individual attention provided. All materials are included for student use during the workshop.
