‘TEXTURE, SELF PORTRAITURE IN THE DIGITAL AGE!’
This workshop is for those artists who are looking for a shift in their work from copying a photograph to interpreting an image in some new and exciting ways. We will be working with our own faces but the ideas and techniques learned can be applied to any subject.
Taking advantage of the amazing power of our electronic devices, we will take a self portrait using an iPad or iPhone or equivalent device, learn how to use the Photoshop app PS Touch to manipulate the image in creative ways then transform some of those ideas into paintings.
The classic approach of designing a painting using the Elements of Design will be combined with utilizing unexplored materials, tools, techniques and pairings. Each day will start with the element of Texture, plus a focus on one additional element. Day 1: Texture and Shape; Day 2: Texture and Value; Day 3: Texture and Line; Day 4: Texture and Color. This will be a fast paced, fun and exciting week to help you discover new ways of thinking and working to create your own unique style and vision.
Frank Webb AWS, NWS: “Beyond The Obvious”
Do you love paint? Are you often found hovering over your easel, aiming to communicate with your unseen audience by means of marks on paper, mindful of difficulties, limitations, countless false starts and failures; yet, dedicated to producing work of higher significance?
If you see yourself in this scenario, then consider joining me. All levels of ability save beginners arewelcome. The single, most important focus will be pictorial design, which includes planning, color, tonal values, expression and visual theme. Demonstrations, personal instruction and objective criticism will sharpen your critical powers. Not only will you gain a better understanding of the painting process, but you will be confident in your new found skills.
Those bound together by art form some of life’s most significant associations.
