Painting with Abandonment: Reconstructing the Narrative
Oct. 5 & 6
9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.
Instructor: Troy Swangstu
Using a model to enter the painting process, students will learn to think about formal painting issues such as line, shape, color, composition, technique and space. We will discuss how to break away from traditional narratives through the painting process by pushing our materials and challenging our notions of “figure”. While this class may have an abstract energy or charge, it does also consider everything comes from something and the importance of a perceptual life. This workshop will push students to “color outside the lines” so to speak and reconsider what drawing and painting means to them in order to find appropriate painterly metaphors to express themselves. Mixed media such as oils and or acrylics. Oils stick charcoal and collage is welcome. Drawing pads will be needed. Watercolor or pastels are welcome.
Student will not be enrolled until both the registration form and payment are received. Fees are non-refundable and due upon registration.
