Painting prompts looking, curiosity, production and stimulation. This three day intensive workshop consists of multiple daily exercises, or prompts, to train the painter to not be tentative, more intuitive, and to develop a free lyrical approach to painting.  Individual and collaboration prompts are assigned after the instructor’s demonstration.  Color mixing, paint application, and subject matter are discussed.  Evaluation and group critique of prompt outcomes occur to progress and grow with further assignments and beyond the workshop. You’ll leave the workshop with a sense of confidence and ideas about approaching the medium to become a more well-rounded and prolific painter.

Some painting experience is recommended. You can work in any water or oil based painting medium on paper, panel, or experimental surface.
