This is a workshop for advanced students working for the week on painting projects of their choice with feedback from the instructor and group critiques. Our discussions will be about, among other things, life, the art world such as it is, making art, materials, process, the language of painting, where inspiration comes from and the magic needed to let it all go, everything you know... and just make good paintings. 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...which can also from time to time include pumpkin and sunflower fields. 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 Museum of Modern Art, The Jewish Museum, The Guggenheim, The Art Institute of Chicago, The High Museum of Art and The Phillips Collection.
