Drawing and Movement with Kate Havel

Express Yourself - Big Time!
Painting with Souby Boski

October 26, 10:30 am - 3:30 pm
Fee:  $125

This workshop is for oil and acrylic painters who want to loosen up and work with less restraint.  To register, contact Souby at:  [email protected]

Using personal photographs as reference students will work on several fast paintings.  Guided towards discovering and trusting their own mark making/painting statements and developing a critical eye. This is not a “how to” class. You will be encouraged to experiment and embrace spontaneity.  By combining fast, bold, loose strokes, students will engage in the “process” of painting in the “present” rather than concentrating on the end result.

Fast paintings will be analyzed for their unique painterly style in order to transfer the best qualities to larger canvases (20×20 or larger).  Bring several canvases,reference photos and lunch.  A suggested materials list will be provided upon registration.

In the words of artist Kiki Smith, “Making art is a lot about seeing what happens.”

Encaustic painting is the process of painting with hot pigmented beeswax.  This technique is ancient, but has become increasingly popular with modern artists of today.  Come delve into the versatility of this exciting  medium that invites you to experiment!
