This two-day workshop is open to all, but the main focus will be introductory, covering the basics. It will be best for those who are relatively new to the medium, looking for an uncomplicated overview of current best practices, but equally beneficial for those with some experience who would like to kick-off the conference with a refresher and some painting time. Mornings will be dedicated to demonstrations and instructor-led exercises, while afternoons will be a time for students to work freely on projects of their own and receive feedback on content and technique. Participants will be encouraged to work at whatever pace they are comfortable, and can expect to create a small series of works in a fun and convivial studio environment.
