Setting the Tone While Pushing Your Limits

Instructor: Kathy Calhoun

Students learn what it takes to have their work noticed from across the room and compel the viewer to come in for a closer look. Using techniques from the 17th to 21st centuries in a short sequential series of enjoyable exercises, students begin with a simple still life then advance to the subject matter of choice. The strategies taught create a stronger sense of presence, eye travel and illusionary space in the students’ work – beneficial for any style from realism to non-representational. Instead of focusing on one or two finished pieces, several short studies are created. This technique driven workshop is not media sensitive; drawing, watercolor, acrylic and oils are all welcome.
