Instructor, Souby Boski
Tuesday, October 12th
1 pm - 4 pm

Acrylics and Oils

This workshop is for students who want to loosen up and work with less restraint.

Using personal photographs, as reference students will work on several fast paintings. Guided towards discovering and trusting their own mark making statement and developing a critical eye. This is not a “how-to” class. You will be encouraged to experiment and embrace spontaneity. By combining fast, bold, loose strokes, students will engage in the “process” of the painting in the “present” rather than concentrating on the end result.

Fast paintings will be analyzed for their unique painterly style in order transfer the best qualities to larger canvases (24x24 or larger).

In the words of the artist, KiKi Smith, “Making art is a lot about seeing what happens.”

Bring several canvases and reference photos. A suggested materials list will be provided upon registration.

The fee for the one-day workshop is $60.

Class size is limited to 10 students.

*Students are required to bring their own supplies.
**Easels, Cleaner and Paper Towels will be provided.
