Workshop Overview

“Cider Time” by Skip  acrylic on board    15″ x 15″

Artistic Exploration

This is a Mentored class. That means the emphasis is on guidance rather than on technical instruction.

This allows each participant to set and explore their own goals and process, at their own level, with the support and expertise of Skip’s 60+ years of experience. It is not a technical “how-to, paint-along” style class.

Each student begins with a private consultation with Skip to clarify specific goals and intentions for the week. Bring examples of past work and notes on your goals to the consultation. This is the perfect opportunity to try new things and work with guidance and support. Moving beyond one’s creative comfort zone, exploration and experimentation are encouraged!

There is no set supply list.  Student will bring or buy all materials  necessary for a week of making art.

Monday begins with scheduling a one-on-one conference with Skip to set goals and discuss your work. During daily class, Skip may include slideshows, lectures, demonstration and lots of personal communication each day. There will be 2 group critiques of per week and ongoing daily conversations of your work in progress.

Cheap Joe’s provides lunch so we can get a lot done and lose weight.

I am excited about this time together and to seeing the results of “What If” painting.
