Instructor: Adam Lowenbein
August 20-24
Monday - Friday
9am - 12pm
5 Sessions

This class will explore the use of different materials - photographs, fabric, paper, objects etc - as formal and narrative elements within our painting. Students are encouraged to bring materials that inspire them visually, challenge them technically and tell some kind of story, literal or not.  The workshop begins with simple assignments then advances to individual projects, focusing on how to develop and explore ideas and techniques and especially on how to combine different elements with paint.  Finished work can be two- and three-dimensional.  Group discussion and individual attention will be part of the class.
