"Dramatic & Vibrant Still Lifes"
October 15, 2021
 

Still-Life paintings don’t have to be ho-hum. They can be anything but “still”, by creating a dramatic design.

Learning what to look for and how to represent it, helps artists as they compose any scene—whether still life, landscape or portrait.

"Beyond Description: Expressive Painting through Image Structure"
November 8-12, 2021
 

Your growth as an artist is my priority as we study great artists and unlock the universal secrets of image structure. At a primal level, it’s this abstract image structure that moves us-- the use of line, shape, space, value, color, and texture. This applies to any style or genre of painting because every good painting is good due to the underlying abstraction - the power of the purely visual. The plan is always to help you reach your potential, painting your way, with your voice and vision, but better than ever before. You can paint representational or abstract. Oils, watercolors, collage, and acrylics welcome. Come be encouraged and inspired in a fun, upbeat atmosphere.

"Interpreting Your Photographic Reference"
Saturdays, December 4-18, 2021
 

Painters often use photographic references when creating works of art. During this three-session class, students will paint the subject of their choice using their photographic reference.

"Fundamentals of Abstraction"
February 8-10, 2022
 

This workshop is for the painter ready to push his or her work beyond the point of recognizable subject matter into the realm of pure abstraction. Students will start with traditional representational approaches and move quickly through progressively more abstract techniques, eventually arriving at purely non-objective paintings. Special attention will be paid to the elements of composition as they apply to abstract painting. Through a combination of slideshows, discussions, assignments, and critiques, this workshop will expose students to new artistic possibilities for self-expression. Students should bring their own reference photos and plan to take photos during the workshop. Printed photos and/or digital images on laptop/iPad may also be used. Students will have the option to paint from a still life set-up.

"Color Confidence"
February 10-13, 2022
 

Learn to mix the exact colors that you want. Experience the delight and joy of color mixing as you become successful and efficient with color mixing. This workshop will help you identify what color you want to mix and then how to mix it efficiently. We will examine how color theory works, and why it doesn’t work so well sometimes. The basics of color theory will be covered but most of the time will be spent mixing color and making small studies. Creativity is sometimes chaotic but color mixing doesn’t have to be, it can be a tool to express your creativity and this class will make it just that. This is a class for all painting media.

"Beyond Description: Expressive Painting through Image Structure"
February 14-18, 2022
 

Your growth as an artist is my priority as we study great artists and unlock the universal secrets of image structure. At a primal level, it’s this abstract image structure that moves us-- the use of line, shape, space, value, color, and texture. This applies to any style or genre of painting because every good painting is good due to the underlying abstraction--the power of the purely visual. Helping other artists exceed their own expectations is one of the most enjoyable things I ever get to do. The plan is always to help you reach your potential, painting your way, with your voice and vision, but better than ever before. Paint representational or abstract. Oils, watercolors, collage, and acrylics welcome.

Join Andrew Denman as he shares the secrets to his dramatically different approach to painting in an easy, step-by-step tutorial. Denman is known for his beautiful portrayals of wildlife in a unique style combining realism with stylization and abstraction. You will employ a series of thick, impasto underpaintings, cover over with many layers of gesso, then sand down to reveal astonishing textures, patterns, and colors, which can either stand on their own, function as an abstract foil to any subject, or provide underlayment for natural textures like fur, feathers, bark, rocks, and grass. The first three days will focus on a series of easy-to-follow exercises. The last two days, students will create a small finished painting of their own.
