Workshop Description

In this workshop, we will:

  • Focus on preparation, process, and pushing past thought
  • Explore modes of bold mark-making that lend to immediacy and intensity
  • Consider the use of words as figures or forms for seducing the audience
  • Employ layering to generate unpredictable metaphor and allegory
  • Use wiping and rubbing to explore vulnerability and reveal hidden beauty and strength

Workshop Goals

  • Develop courage, and confidence in yourself, your practice and your mark-making
  • Make distinctive work that stands out and grabs the audience
  • Move your work beyond the status-quo

The act of painting is more than a desire to make an interesting picture. In fact, that barely scratches the surface. Firstly, it is a way of exploring the notion of creation, a way of knowing God and thus oneself. Secondly, it is a dialogue with the human instinct to communicate. It is a continuation of the first marks made by primates and early humans who scraped lines in dirt, sand and on cave walls. And perhaps, most importantly, it is a way of allowing the unconscious impulse to manifest poetic expressions of the human experience to be recognized by others who are on this journey.
