Express Yourself-Big Time with Souby Boski
March 6, 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
Date: Friday, March 6, 10-4pm
Fee: $125 for members and $145 for non-members. Students must bring their own supplies.
This workshop is for students who want to loosen up and work with less restraint. Using personal photographs, as reference students will work on several fast paintings. Guided towards discovering and trusting their own mark marking and brush strokes to develop a critical eye. This is not a “how-to” class. You will be encouraged to experiment and embrace spontaneity. By combining fast, bold, loose strokes, students will engage in the “process” of the painting in the “present” rather than concentrating on the end result. Fast paintings will be analyzed for their unique painterly style in order transfer the best qualities to larger canvases (24×24 or larger).
In the words of the artist, KiKi Smith, “Making art is a lot about seeing what happens.” Bring several canvases and reference photos. A suggested materials list will be provide upon registration.
