Painting from the Heart

This open studio workshop for intermediate and advanced painters in watermedia gives each participant a chance to concentrate for an intensive week on his/her personal direction. Each participant will  have an individual conference/critique session with the instructor to discuss and assess direction, process, progress, and possibilities of his/her paintings. There will be slide lectures, video presentations, and discussions on contemporary painting issues as well as on the content and form of watermedia. Participants are asked to bring 5 painting slides or 5 actual works done in the last year for discussion.
