The Touch of the Brush: Mark-Making, Calligraphy and Gestural Unity in Painting
February 12-15, 2015 — Painting is an arrangement of colored shapes - the most important truth of learning how to paint. No matter what the actual subject, an artist must learn to see the world in the language of painting rather than as nameable objects. Working from observation (still-life) this workshop will stress the nuances of direct visual perception & the importance of selection & simplification (what not to paint) in making a strong painting. We will focus on acquiring color sensitivity, seeing shapes of light & dark, attention to edges, using shape making gestural unity, & good studio practices. Experience required. This will be a 3.5 day workshop. Day 1: 6-9 pm; Day 2, 3, 4: 9am-4pm Visit website

Figure Drawing & Painting with Tim Rees
March 20-22, 2015 (9am-4pm) — Students will draw the portrait and figure, learning to look for and implement the most important elements of shape, value, and edge for bold, confident, and loose but accurate drawings. The class will then select a figure pose which will be used as a starting point to design a painting to complete during the following two days. Students will build upon the concepts of shape, value, and edge that were learned in the drawing session to create a strong and beautiful painting. Students will work in a direct method, or wet-into-wet, to tackle the elements of a painting methodically, logically, and artistically. Visit website

Classical Oil Portraiture
May 14-17, 2015 (9am-4pm) — Learn how to lay in an accurate underdrawing in vine charcoal and create a small color poster study as a tool for making color choices. Then we will create an underpainting, a wash in a thin layer of color over your underdrawing. Next we will learn to execute the overpainting. There is an emphasis on turning form and use of color in doing so. The goal is to finish the painting region by region. Finally, we will learn a glazing technique. We will be using an alkyd medium that will help our overpainting to dry overnight so that we can apply a glaze to it the next day and continue with the overpainting. Visit website
