CURRENT & UPCOMING WORKSHOPS

ZEN OF PAINTING
august 3-august 24, 2022
new art center in newton
$250
 

Every artist has their MARK, much like one’s handwrtiting.  Learn how to generate an abstract painting from your Mark, working in the non representational.  Work in the moment, much like a dance and very immediate.  There is always time to go back in to reconstruct later and edit.  Access your natural intuitive unconscious through a series of exercises, culminating in an acrylic painting.

THE LANGUAGE OF ABSTRACTION
august 30-september 1, 2022
Artists Association of Nantucket
Non-member Tuition: $350
Member Tuition: $315

Investigate the interconnection of drawing and painting through the study of abstraction. Artist Katherine Miller shows students how to develop their own artistic identity by using visual and intuitive language of mark-making. At the start of each class, students will be guided through a series of mark-making exercises using graphite, charcoal, and pastels, designed to inspire exploration between what is seen and felt beyond a representational image. Katherine will then demonstrate how these drawing techniques can be incorporated into an acrylic painting, and as she shares her process for finding transparencies through applying, wiping away, and layering paint. Additional focus will be placed on composing an active picture plane using line, form, and pattern to create spatial relationships with energetic movement. These methods of thinking, seeing, and moving will guide group discussion and critiques, as you learn fun and effective ways to approach the challenges of working abstractly. Whether you are an abstract or representational painter, these actionable techniques can raise your level of impactful expression. All levels welcome

LANDSCAPE TO ABSTRACTION
Fall 2022
new art center in newton

All good abstraction comes from reality. Using the lines of the land to access the language of abstraction, we will learn about dynamic composition, chaos within structure, and the power of brushstrokes. Oils and acrylics will be used in this class. All levels welcome.
