In this workshop students will explore techniques and concepts in painting with an emphasis on individual development of style and theme. We will investigate various approaches to representational and abstract painting, and the metaphorical meaning in figure and landscape paintings. Students will work from live models and landscape, and will discover how a basic image can be transformed into a personal statement through the process of painting and the artist’s imagination. Students are encouraged to experiment with ideas and techniques with the purpose of developing a personal expression. This workshop is designed for artists in all levels, both abstract and representational.
