Art Escape Gallery is excited to announce an upcoming Online 3 Day Workshop by Award Winning Artist Laura Pollak [we all need something fun to look forward to after this crazy year…right?!!!]
This will be a Zoom Workshop [no need to have an account] so you can paint from your own home/studio and have all your supplies right next to you! No need to travel [even though we are all raring to go], No Masks, [YAY], and we promise you that there will be no Covid Exposure!!! You can even paint in your jammies! See every stroke and color better than in an in person workshop! You will however be ‘exposed’ to some fun new information!!!
We will start each day with a new Demo and go from Realistic to Abstract.
Students will go through the steps of using their own photo [any scene you’d like… landscape or still life], cropping, editing, using apps to inspire and then going into the sequence of elimination, simplification, choosing a new color palette, using fresh marks and exploring many unique textural possibilities!
All levels are included [having some drawing and pastel experience is helpful] There are limited spaces so that each student will receive a plenty of attention.
Day 1: The day starts with a Powerpoint Presentation about Design, Value, and Color. There will be Demos and Exercises. We will be developing a ‘glow', whether for a landscape or a pure abstract. After a one-hour break for lunch, artists paint on their own or can follow along. Toward the end of the day, students upload their paintings to an online bulletin board called Padlet [free and accessible via link]. Then using the app Procreate you will receive real time suggestions to improve your work and all can observe all or paint. You can see the revised painting right next to the original and download it to your computer to save and work from.
Day 2: Art reviews from Day 1 work, Powerpoint Presentation on Inspiration and Apps as well as a Demo taking your painting further. Lunch Break. Students Paint and send in paintings for review and discussion.
Day 3: Art reviews from previous works, Powerpoint Presentations on Books and Reference Materials, and Demo on pure abstract. Lunch Break Paint and final art reviews.
Questions and open dialogue are always encouraged. THIS WILL BE FUN!
