March 5th - 7th 2018 (Monday - Wednesday)
The aim of these 3 days is to for the students to lose fear and doubts surrounding making a painting and to create work that has no boundaries, encouraging play and experimentation. Gain confidence through experience of combining, clashing, layering different colours, textures and contrasts, appendages, motifs and ornaments together with collage and painting; and anything else you wish to add to the work. Apply 3 and 2 dimensional elements together to create original and lively work. Painting can become serious. We will bring more fun into the studio through many textures, colours, techniques, things , forms and shapes. Artists we will be looking at are Jessica Stockholder, Paul McCarthy, Isa Gengken, Mike Kelley, Richard Smith, Richard Tuttle, Robert Rauschenberg, Julian Schnabel, Fontana, and Annette Messager .
