Working the Surface
This will be a highly experimental workshop with the exploration of surface creation. Students will work on the same four paintings all week, creating different surface techniques that allow for a build-up of layers. Once the surface is created we will score into it and create finished paintings. We will work on larger-sized canvases and explore different mediums that include wax, marble dust, tar, collage, oil primer, alkyds, and enamels. We will work on wood, paper and canvas using oil paint and paint stick as the main medium.
