Working With Oil & Wax”
FOR BEGINNER TO PROFESSIONAL
FEBRUARY 1-3, 2019
The Visionary Projects is delighted to be hosting the "Moving Paint: Working With Oil & Wax" 3-day workshop with New Jersey based artist Lisa Pressman in Miami, Florida.
Join artist Lisa Pressman as you will be expanding your personal vocabulary and vision in your art. We will focus on layering, moving paint and markmaking to build rich and personal paintings. The language of art will be revisited: composition, color, tension and space, and scalealong with color theory. Demonstrations include using R&F Pigment sticks, pastels, drawing materials along with excavating, mono printing, glazing, mark making and editing. We will focus on content, how to see and moving your work forward. Students will be encouraged to work in a series, while revisiting the painting process. Professional practices will be addressed and activities will include exercises, informal group discussion and individual support. This is best for students with some art background.
