According to Socrates, all learning is really just remembering what is already inherently within us. To this end, artist Robert Weatherford notes that anyone who feels the desire to create a painting already has the ability within to do so, and with great power. We inherently know what makes a painting work. In his Painting From Within classes, Robert emphasizes intention of meaning – in order to “remember” how painting works we have to care about what we are saying in the piece. Nothing is ever an exercise. Robert’s methodology is an attempt to inspire his students to bring as much passion into their work as possible. The intended lesson is to keep faith with the magic of making an image so that our integrity in the process grows. Robert’s “all in” approach to teaching and painting allows innate honesty about what it means to be human to come through each piece. Paint with conviction; paint from within. This class is for all levels of painters.
