In this workshop students will learn to paint in a creative, personal, and expressive way using reference photographs – freeing them from copying.
Learn to dismiss the sense of obligation to show exactly what is depicted in the photo and feel free and inspired to manipulate the composition, assuring vitality and making the painting your personal creation.
Bring several canvases and reference photos. A suggested materials list will be provide upon registration.
