This workshop is specially designed for the realist painter interested in adding elements of abstraction to his or her work while remaining firmly rooted in traditional representational techniques. A series of progressive exercises will guide students through a process of eliminating unnecessary visual information to arrive at a clear and simplified final image. Through a combination of slideshows, discussions, assignments and critiques, this workshop will expose students to new artistic possibilities for self-expression. Students should bring their own reference photos and also plan to take photos while in class (printed photos may be used and/or images from a laptop/iPad, especially if it has photo-editing software). There will be at least one session painting from a still life set up. This class is open-media but the instructor will demonstrate using acrylics. Please sign up early; class size is limited.
