– where to start and how to start

– what matters on paper

Followed by a sequence of guided exercises designed as tools to immerse you in your daily life in the studio. The materials will be pencils and paper and some other materials for the collage.

Creating the abstract landscape An online workshop with Amanda Hawkins

August 13-15

This three-day online painting retreat explores abstraction, color and branding through the prism of landscape painting. Abstraction is explored in a structured and intuitive way, intended to give students the tools and confidence to take risks and make informed decisions on the web.

This workshop will explore unconventional color palettes, study its own unique brand, pay close attention to color as a value, and most importantly, transform reference images into rich, energetic abstract paintings.

Each morning the class will meet remotely via Zoom to engage in a discussion and perform some relevant but experimental warm-up exercises. Each afternoon will be spent working on larger and more complex paintings in the comfort of your home studio. Expect demonstration videos for each exercise and at least 1 hour of live painting per day by the instructor.

Despite the distance, there will be a great deal of individual attention consisting of 1: 1 daily personal appointments. At the end of each day, students have the opportunity to participate in a question-and-answer hour with the instructor, talk to their cohorts, and share updates on the painting.

Tear and paste and apply your papers in a painterly manner on top of a female portrait made with charcoal drawing and paint.
