May 28-30 2021

This workshop has an emphasis on the effective way to achieve your own personal vision through an introduction to mark making techniques. Your brushwork directly influences how the painting is made, and ultimately what it looks like. It is essential as an artist to experiment with their working methods and ideas through the practice of mark making. Such experimental practice will help you find your own personal style regardless which medium and style you might be working in. This course is intended for all levels of art practice to be informative as you explore ways of approaching and developing your concepts. It is essential for an artist to recognize accidents, which are a potential for expanding on a particular technique or for future concept development. Dominik will give demonstrations through out the workshop.

You will also be introduced you to basics of meaningful art critique. We will discuss our work with an introduction to visual vocabulary. [/one_half_last](Critique from French version of this word is spelled the same (meaning “the art of criticism”) and came from the Greek kritike tekhne (“the critical art”).
