Painting Beyond Technique Workshop
Add to your calendar
Date: September 17, 10:00 am
Location: The Art Studio; 111 Elk Ave Crested Butte, CO 81224
Details:

Painting Beyond Technique is a workshop designed for artists with an established artistic practice.  The workshop encourages the participating artist to investigate her or his own vision of the world while developing skills with purposeful inquiry and creative expression and the development of compositions that go beyond technique, beyond image making into the realm of expressive concepts, ideas, philosophies or any number of content-texts derived from the individual artists own experiences. This workshop helps artists develop their compositions using powerful visual images to provoke thoughts, arouse feelings and stimulate the intellect.

Because this is not a technique course, the artist participants will select their preferred media of expression.  With that stipulation, one of the more important aspects of this workshop is the manipulation of color and color concepts, therefore, it is important for the participants to be working with some form of media that possess a color capability. 

Through a variety of directed application assignments, group discussions, and critiques the workshop differentiates between the use of presentational and representational images in the presentation of dynamic compositions. 

The workshop demonstrates how to use non-local color, a color used for the purposes of the composition rather than colors that simply mimic those that already exist when using preexisting references.  Non-local color will be united with local values, areas of light and dark that is consistent with a directional light source, in establishing powerful visual images and forceful compositions.  

Employing non-local color with local values the workshop, investigates the use of actual and compositional space differentiation in the attraction of images depending upon their placement in the compositional space.  Actual space is the specific measured areas of the composition, the height, and width of the composition, and compositional space is the related and interrelated areas of the composition occupied by the dynamic images.  The application assignments will show how an image isolated has more visual attraction when juxtaposed against images grouped together in the same composition.  The application assignments will also illustrate the added attraction of dynamic images placed on or near an implied or actual edge in the compositional frame.  

When: September 17 - 21, 2018 ( 5 day workshop)

Time:  10:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.  

Cost:  $250
