Residencies (8+ Weeks)

Expressive Painting with Layers 

Painting expressively requires complete trust in ones capabilities. It evokes the freedom for the artist to create without judgment and explore their creativity. Through an 8 week program students will learn the skills that will make them capable of full self-expression. Starting with drawing techniques that will cultivate students understanding of shape, composition and texture, then leading to painting methods, design principles and color characteristics. The act of layering emphasizes the ever-changing state of artwork and allows students to let loose and experiment within the medium. Discussions about past and current artists will be an inspiration to students throughout the 8 weeks.
