This is a master workshop for advanced students. This workshop will allow students to work intensively on a painting project of their choice. There will be continuous discussion of work throughout the week by the instructor and also through group critiques. Group discussions will be about, among other things, materials, process, the language of painting, inspiration and the magic needed to leave all talk behind and just make a good painting. There might even be a few helpful assignments.
Joan Snyder received her A.B. from Douglass College and her M.F.A. from Rutgers University. Often referred to as an autobiographical or confessional artist, Snyder’s paintings are narratives of both personal and communal experiences. Snyder was a recipient of a National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship, a John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Fellowship and a MacArthur Fellowship. Snyder’s work is in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the MoMA, the New York City Jewish Museum, the Guggenheim, the High Museum of Art and the Phillips Collection. A 35 year survey of her work, Dancing with the Dark: Prints by Joan Snyder 1963 – 2010, traveled to three venues.
