"Painting the Figure: Observation, Abstraction & Invention"
April 26-29, 2018

Somewhere between strict representation and pure abstraction there is a sweet spot—an approach to figure painting that conveys both the humanity of the sitter and the individual voice of the painter. This three-day workshop will explore avenues leading to this spot. Painting and collage exercises will focus on simplifying and distilling the human form in its everyday environment. We will work from a live model, but also from personal photographs, fashion photography, and reproductions of notable paintings. Slide show presentations of the figurative work of historic and contemporary artists will provide inspiration. This workshop is open to all levels working in all media; however, some prior experience with figurative painting is helpful.
