“Modern Painting”
North River Arts, Marshfield, MA
6 week class
Tuesday’s 9:30 – 12:30
November 12, 19, 26, Dec 3, 10, 17   

 This class is designed for the artist who is interested  in exploring ways to create more modern, bold, and expressive paintings by taking a less representational approach. 
While retaining a bit of reality, we’ll explore ways to manipulate the abstract elements of line, shape, color and value to express an unexpected idea or statement.
Through a series of quick, fun exercises, we will learn how to “break the rules” and let our intuition guide us. We’ll be working from still life and/or photos and all painting mediums are welcome.

Designing Paintings With Collage -
One Day workshop
North River Arts, Marshfield, MA
9:30 – 3:30 Saturday Oct. 5 2019

A one day workshop geared for painters who are working toward a more modern, less representational approach to their paintings. We will discover how to design simple, strong paintings by experimenting with collage and mixed media. By nature, using cut or torn paper as a medium, releases you from the control you may have when painting. We’ll create simple collages, using images or paintings (either ours or one we admire) as a reference. Then we will paint a new painting using the collages as a reference.  All mediums welcome. All levels. Limit 12. Collage materials provided.
