Radical Layering

If you feel like you’ve been playing it safe in your art, or that you are in a rut with predictable paintings, this workshop will shake up your practice and get you well out of your comfort zone. You will gain the courage to make bold moves and dramatic shifts in your pieces as you let go of the preciousness of each mark. In addition to the new techniques in collage and painting, this workshop offers a radically freeing approach to composition.

100 Paintings

How do you make good art?  How do you make art that is truly yours? My view is that there are no tricks, gimmicks, or shortcuts: it just takes a lot of practice to become fluent in visual language and develop your own voice. Fortunately, making a lot of art is fun, if you can let go of the expectations and negative voices (that inner critic!) that get in your way.
