Description Of Workshop:
A five-week studio class which aims to help painters rethink how to create depth in visual space as a foundation to transitioning from their “familiar” approaches to composition and painting to a new level . Each participant will work with the instructor to: determine new ways of creating visual space, apply new painting techniques and be challenged to rethink their usual approaches in their work. Painting techniques will be demonstrated and explained. From the sharing of each individual’s work and application of ideas, all participants will experience a range of painting approaches—collaborative hands-on learning! Participants will work in the medium of their choice; oil, acrylic or watercolor.
To learn more about this workshop, please call Carrie at Lake Effect Gallery, 616-395-3025. She will explain more plus put you in touch with Peter, the instructor for more details.
