“New Beginnings: An Artist’s Plan for the Studio!” with Betsy Payne Cook,PPSCC, CPS
January 22, 2022,10 am – 4 pm, online via Zoom
Any level- Ideal for beginners and more advanced artists
Join me in a full-day workshop where you will explore three key areas that will assist in setting up individual routines to promote more consistency and exploration during your studio time.
There are a multitude of ways you can engage your creative mind on a regular basis without the pressure of always completing a painting. This workshop will include demonstrations and exercises giving you options for ways to enhance your personal expression of art, and to develop a repertoire of skills and techniques. Overall focus is on setting up routines, collecting ideas and creating a few small paintings to develop skills in design elements, value and color interactions, and exploration of pastel with other mediums.
During the morning you will compile a library of painting ideas so you will have a stockpile to refer to for inspiration for future painting ideas. There will be fun and challenging exercises using photographs and live observation. In the afternoon you will begin a small series of paintings using the morning exercises as your individual guide. Demonstrations will be provided.
*You will receive a copy of the “My Art Plan” worksheet for use in this workshop. This is an ongoing project of mine, specifically designed to share with my students. Please respect my request that you agree not reproduce this worksheet and/or adapt it to share with others.
