Premier Coup Painting

Duane Keiser
One Space Left!

Through painting sessions, demos and critiques, Duane Keiser will lead a dynamic four-day workshop on premier coup oil painting. Premier coup, or direct painting, [also known as alla prima painting] refers to a method by which the artist applies each stroke of paint to the canvas with the intention of letting it stand in the picture as part of the final statement. Included will be a talk on being a painter in the digital age which will include Keiser's unique take on the current state of the internet, social media and the business of art. The workshop is open to all skill levels, though you should have a working understanding of the painting process. See more images and details

Friday - Sunday
September 26 - 28

Design Intensive

Jennifer Diehl

The most important aspect of a painting is how the viewer experiences the piece. This class goes into great depth as to how to create that experience through all aspects of design. We will spend each day working on hands on activities to help better understand unity, variety, emphasis, eye movement, color in design, Notan, design in still life, landscape, etc., etc., etc. Be prepared for an intense workout in design.

Design is the single most important thing in a painting. It has the first impact on a viewer by directing the viewer’s eye through the painting to experience the entirety of the piece based on how you (the artist) have chosen to show them what you have to say. This set of workshops goes into great depth, exploring design concepts with hands on learning. You will spend most of each day learning a concept, and then applying it through exercises that were created to enhance your understanding.

Instructor: Jennifer Diehl
Friday - Sunday
October 17 - 19
November 14 - 16
10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.
