In-Person: An Intuitive Approach to Painting with Laurence Young

September 20 – September 24 | Monday-Friday, 9:30-12:30pm | $380 for members, $400 for non-members

Through observation, intuitive decision-making, and experimental play, you will discover new choices and new insight into your work. By creating arbitrary paint strokes, lines, and accidental muddles you will learn how to incorporate them into your finished paintings. The challenge and focus of this 3-day workshop will be to approach painting through an unconventional process.

You will be working from both still life and a live model and challenged with prompts and specific exercises that can be utilized in your own style of painting. This workshop will inspire both beginners and seasoned painters.

From a very early age, Laurence Young had a passion for making art and never veered very far from that conviction.  He grew up in Newton Massachusetts and attended the University of Hartford in Connecticut.  Laurence graduated with honors in 1974 with a BFA in art education. After three years as a classroom art teacher, he opted to attend the Rhode Island School of Design, receiving his Master’s in Printmaking in 1979.
In 1981 he started a design and fabric printmaking studio for the sportswear industry.  Never giving up on his ultimate dream of becoming a working artist sold the company after a successful ten years and headed to Provincetown.  Under the tutelage of Lois Griffel, then the Dir. of the Cape Cod School of Art, Young studied and learned what it meant to become a full-time artist while honing his painting skills.  
For almost 30 years Young has been part of the artist community in Provincetown. He has had solo shows and juried into numerous exhibitions. Young is currently exhibiting at Alden Gallery in Provincetown.  Laurence‚Äôs paintings are part of private and public collections such as the Provincetown Art Association and Museum, NJ State Museum, and the Daniel Mullin collection.
