Maggie Siner: 4 Day Workshop: Color and Shape: February 1st-4th


Monday, February 1
6 pm slideshow
9:30-4:30 pm

Painting is an arrangement of colored shapes.  This fact defines the most important truth of learning how to paint.  No matter what the actual subject of the painting, an artist must learn to see the world in the language of colors and shapes rather than as nameable objects.  Each artist then refines and develops this language in a personal way. Working from still life observation, this intensive workshop will stress the nuances of direct visual perception and the importance of selection and simplification (what NOT to paint) in making a strong dynamic painting.  We will focus on acquiring color sensitivity, seeing shapes of light and dark, attention to edges, using shape and brushwork for gestural unity, and good studio practices.   This is not a beginner's workshop, previous experience required.
