Through demonstration and studio time, the focus of this workshop is to provide the “tools” and techniques for you to realize your individual creative process. We will cover drawing and visual inventory methods, color theory in the simplest of terms to understand values, review various approaches to underpainting and glazing techniques, and practice a loose application of paint through the use of brushes and mixed media. The instructor will work one-on-one with students to guide them in defining their own style. Because many practicing painters seek ways to “loosen up” we will explore numerous techniques to move beyond our comfort zones. You will gain knowledge of products and techniques along with newfound confidence in your drawing and painting pursuits. All skill levels welcome.
