"Investigating your Identity" 

Four Tuesdays       6:30-9:00 PM 
APRIL 3, 10,17 & 24

We live in a complex culture that influences us as artists. Some of us work in impulse, while others direct their actions methodically. A conscious understanding of our tools, process and the underlying motivations can help us cultivate our path.   In this workshop I present a series of steps to help you define your voice in paint.  We will begin by exploring the concept of “home” by building a personal word dictionary, images, thoughts and stories.  These elements will be used to consciously define and map your migration.  

Session 1: Defining Home and engaging in the Action Painting

Session 2: Exploring Value & Personal Patterns - color, shape and your voice

Session 3:  Portraying personal Archetypes & Associations

Session 4:  Constructions of Color and questioning the Alter Ego

 Fee  $195.00 + $10 Materials Fee

All tools, Acrylic Paints and surfaces will be supplied.

Please bring a sketchbook or drawing pad

Since 1999 I have been a Certified GOLDEN Working Artist, lecturing about acrylic paint systems, used in painting, drawing, printmaking and mixed media.  I teach a range of workshops throughout the Northwest with a focus on materials and techniques to aide fellow artists to develop new investigations, understanding and levels of control. These workshops explore paint, mediums, gels, grounds and most importantly color to push boundaries, opening  new pathways for your personal voice.
 Here is a list of options for workshops to choose from:
  • "Foundations of Acrylic"
  • "Mediums and Gels" secrets to rich painting
  • "Clean Color Mixing" understanding pigment characteristics
  • "Seductive Surfaces and Persuasive Pigments"
  • "Amazing Glazing - OPEN Acrylics"
  • "GOLDEN Wet & Wild Washes" 
  • "Faux EnCaustic with Acrylic"
  • "Acrylic Image Transfer and Collage"
  • "Acrylic Image Transfer and Painting on Plexi"

  • "Mono Type without a Press"
  • Exploring the Collagraph"

  • "Grounds for Drawing and Painting"
  • "Mixed Media Mania"

  • "Investigating Your Identity"

If you are a member of a group of artists in a guild, art association or collective and would prefer I travel to your workspace to teach, we can discuss the arrangements.
