Experimental Painting in English

This experimental painting course is totally hands-on. I will guide you through a series of short drawing/painting experimental exercises, and we’ll finish with a longer painting task combining all techniques. The point is not to come out of the workshop with one masterpiece, but rather explore and liberate the gesture to tackle painting in a different way. All materials are included in the cost of the workshop.
Monthly. For exact dates, check my website
