Robert Spooner-Beyond Basics, The Search For Your Inner Voice
Thursday, May 4, 2017 at 9:00 AM - Saturday, May 6, 2017 at 4:00 PM (EDT)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
My workshops are about building skill sets. Weather you’re a figurative, plein air, still life, or landscape painter, you have to have a visual vocabulary, a foundation if you much on how to take a painting from concept to completion.I start with a lecture and demonstration on the first day where I take the class thru concepts of color, shape and value to point-to- point relationship drawing. This lecture provides a vocabulary for which the class is on the same playing field for the remainder of the workshop.
We begin with these principles and apply them a class participation painting. This piece usually is a still life (could be plein air) but most important is to direct the class thru the piece with a hands-on approach. Classes (paintings) are followed up with self and instructor critiques. Students are encouraged to critique one another’s pieces during this time.
Each day we expand deeper into the principles, take on bigger visual problems. So each day we have two paintings or problems to solve. Lunch is about one hour.
Each day concludes with a wrap-up, critique and review.
