In this workshop, we will be exploring some tips and techniques of intuitive painting, mark making and then how to create an image from your background. These basics will provide a jumping off point to working bigger and with build confidence to continue on with the process. Our morning will start off with some fun exercises for building your personal repertoire for mark making. These can become your signature marks. Next we will paint in a face using non traditional ideas and colors for what constitutes “skin”. This will be a handout given to students to work on. Finally we will finish up our afternoon creating a small painting utilizing our ideas from throughout the day.
