"Master Class with Stuart Shils: The Life Studio as Painted and Perceptual Space"
February 23-25, 2018
 

Join acclaimed painter Stuart Shils for a three-day painting intensive, focusing on pictorial structure, composition and color. The life model will be the primary subject, with emphasis placed on close-looking, improvisational shorthand and editorial intervention to establish perceptual hierarchy. A day will be devoted to working from reproductions of old and modern masters to interpret their construction and organization of painted space. Acrylic paint will be the main medium, with considerable emphasis on drawing with graphite, crayons and cut-paper collage.
