About the 2 Part Workshop: HOW TO PAINT UGLY

This two part workshop will introduce important and global approaches to painting the figure that participants can choose to try or not- these four hours are not about making people expert painters. Participants will be responding to one of the most interesting visual subjects, the human form, with color and paint. This is not a workshop that requires any background or skills with painting. The live model will be in a bathing suit and have a large colorful inflatable pool float. Attendance is required for both parts, Feb. 15, 2019 and Feb. 22, 2019. Your registration fee covers both nights!
