2023 Summer Workshops
Looking closely at the work of contemporary painters, we’ll explore the creation of pictures that utilize place, weather, pathways, relationships, and space as organizing principles for content and composition. The goal of this workshop is to explore one’s deep location (using landscape, interior, still life, portraiture, figurative work, or abstraction) and to create a small body of new artwork. The course is open to artists of all levels, but ideally you should have some familiarity with the materials with which you choose to work.
