"Paying Attention: The Life Studio as Painted Space"
April 27-28; Intro Lecture, Friday April 26

In this master class, Stuart Shils addresses perceptual and graphic clarity, offering a controlled setting in which to examine pictorial concerns far beyond “how to” paint the figure. Students study translating their perceptions into articulate painted space and explore color, composition, and design. They’ll take a close look at both the set-up of the room and at the painting, with the “model” as part of a larger graphic configuration. Students will work in acrylic paint, NOT oil. In preparation for his class, Mr. Shils presents a 90-minute introductory lecture with slides, examining issues of perceptual awareness. The talk serves as "Chapter One" of the class, so all participants should plan to be there.
Location: Wayne, Pennsylvania
Instructor: Stuart Shils
Cost: $575 Wayne Art Center members/ $605 non-members
