This workshop is for oil & acrylic painters 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/painting statements 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 (20×20 or larger). Bring several canvases, reference photos and your lunch. A suggested materials list will be provided upon registration. To register, contact Souby at: [email protected]

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