This is an ideal workshop for intermediate to advanced students who want to improve their painting skills and have previously taken classes with Pablo Contrisciani. The class meets once a week for four consecutive weeks.
Students will expand their visual vocabulary and work on their technique. During the workshop, they’ll get the chance to explain what they want to accomplish by sharing their current work, which will also be used to determine both their skill level and the areas where the instructor can be of help.
This workshop will allow students to express their personal style while also exploring painting techniques. According to each student’s subject matter, a wide variety of both conventional and unconventional methods of composition will be taught. Individual instruction, demonstration and exercises will assist the student in developing a unique body of work.
Students will have constant support/critiques during the class. The time is limited to each student given the unique format of the class. Be sure to have questions prepared in advance to make the most of your time.
