Exploring Your Own Visual Language: Oil, Cold Wax & More with Lisa Pressman | August 13 – 16
Celebrated visiting artist Lisa Pressman returns for a cold wax and mixed media workshop where students can expand their personal vocabulary and vision while revisiting their painting process using oils and cold wax. R&F pigment sticks, graphite, ink, and pastels will also be introduced to create expressive, richly surfaced paintings. Each day, Lisa will provide demonstrations on techniques, including layering, excavating, monoprinting, glazing, color mixing, texture, mark making, and editing. Students will receive individualized attention on their art process with the aim of expanding their own artistic practice. The class will focus on content, how to see, and how to move work forward. Students will engage in exercises, informal group discussion, individual support, power points and more. Some art background is helpful. This is a Visiting Artist class, therefore cancellations must be made at least 45 days in advance in order to qualify for a refund (less a $25 administrative fee).
