"Painting in the Dark with Neysa Grassi"
July 14-15, 2018
 

Paint your way through the mystery and uncertainty of the art-making process through this intuitive, practical and empowering workshop with acclaimed artist and PAFA graduate faculty member, Neysa Grassi. Dispel the voices of criticism in your head, and learn to perceive doubt as a valid means of investigation rather than a destructive force. Work in gouache and mixed media on paper to discover the freedom that comes from making imagery without preconceived outcomes. Discussion of painting practices and critiques of students’ previous work will supplement studio activity. All instruction is presented on an artist-to-artist basis, whether participants are beginners or seasoned artists. References will include Phillip Guston, Alberto Giacometti, Outsider Art and other artists/movements.
