Painting and Drawing One-Week Intensive

During this week-long intensive, students will be fully immersed in their creative work while discovering the joy and excitement of engaging with their materials, ideas, peers, and instructor in new and inspiring ways. Students will focus on the intimate relationship between drawing and painting, and experiment with a wide range of multi-disciplinary approaches that will help build a bridge between the two. Working with wet and dry media, students will develop technical and conceptual skills to expand their personal visual language and broaden their relationship with their work. Students will experiment with traditional and non-traditional drawing and painting materials to deepen their connection to contemporary studio practices. Discussions, critiques, and faculty presentations will be included. This intensive is designed for students with an active practice that want to advance from an intermediate level.
