Expressive Painting – with Nancy Colella

September 28, 2017 - September 29, 2017

$175 - $200

Thursday & Friday, September 28 & 29,
9:30 AM – 3:30 PM.
$175 RAA&M Members / $200 Non-Members.
Registration Deadline: September 21.

Learn how to create more “expressive” paintings by breaking the subject down into big, simple, shapes and letting go of the details. Using shape, color, and line, with an emphasis on strong composition and correct values, we will explore fun ways to express an emotion or feeling. Through a series of quick exercises, demos, and critiques, we will discover how to create lively, expressive paintings that are in fact, highly organized and carefully planned. Students will work from simple still life set-ups and photographs, using a limited palette and large brushes. Be prepared to step out of your comfort zone! Oils are encouraged, however acrylics will work.

All levels welcome. A list of suggested materials will be provided in advance.

Registration Deadlines: Participants must register by the listed deadline – one week prior to the workshop.
