Workshop Openings

I am offering 100 Drawings on Cheap Paper again this fall, beginning on October 4.  This is a ten-week online workshop that focuses on working in quantity.  It is not about working quickly, but about investigating an idea over the course of ten small paintings or studies each week.  I am limiting the enrollment to a smaller class size than previously.

One feature of this class is that you are asked to make observations about the work that you post, to really look at it as it stands on its own.  This is surprisingly challenging, because when viewing our own work, our default seems to be to describe how we made it.  You will develop a vocabulary for identifying visual content, apart from technical process.

My workshop at Hudson River Valley Art Workshops this spring has a few openings available.  "Visual Improvisation" is about taking a more inventive and playful approach to composition.  The web site describes the dates as May 7 - 13; that is is if you arrive on the Sunday prior to the workshop and depart the Saturday afterwards.  The workshop days are May 8 - 12, a Monday through Friday, full days.

  1. Jane, nice update on how you describe the 100 Drawings workshop, and I think a smaller class size sounds beneficial. Thumbs up!

    1. Of course! Several people have taken it more than once. Sign up SOON, though, because it is filling fast.

  4. This blog was really very informative and really helped me understand what actually was my query, now I can choose the right one for myself, thanks a lot, keep updating us with further information.

  5. Truly nice post about workshop opening. I love these beautiful arts a lot. My daughter loves paintings and we just got to know about a painting contest for kids that will be organized at local event space. I would love to enroll here in that contest because it will boost her confidence.


I have had some spam comments lately, advertising of stupid stuff. So I am moderating comments until I can figure out a better way to prevent spam. THANKS!
