Get To Work - A Painting Experience (oils & acrylics) - Virtual Class

"Inspiration is for amateurs. The rest of us just show up and get to work. If you wait around for the clouds to part and a bolt of lightening to strike you in the brain, you are not going to make an awful lot of work. All the best ideas come out of the process; they come out of the work itself."
- Chuck Close

Show up at your easel & start the process! Stretch your imagination while strengthening skills through the process of "painting". Painters will explore concepts and techniques. Various approaches to painting will be encouraged: experimentation of techniques and ideas, trail and error. You will be challenged to see and interpret in new ways.

Personal consultations in each class will cultivate your own vision and enable you to realize your personal artistic ambitions. Gain the confidence to explore the use of color, mark making, surface quality and composition, emphasizing your own pictorial language.

Explore where you are and where you wish to go. Let's Get to Work!

*Registered participants will be emailed a ZOOM link, Meeting ID, and password a day before the class.

About the instructor: Drawing inspiration from Abstract Expressionism as well as Impressionism, Souby Boski uses gestural and abstracted forms to define her richly textured compositions. Her loosely painted canvases
are immediate responses to her visceral connection with her subjects.
