Catching the Spirit: Shaping the Fleeting Moment by exploring accident and intention Four days to step out of everyday life and into the immersive, colourful world of the studio painting in the beautiful surrounds of Emerson College. In these four days we will begin to open up and explore abstract space, structure and colour. Through drawing and painting we will explore relationships and wholeness within the artwork, focusing on composition and placement. We will use the immediacy and vibrancy of acrylics to develop these dynamics in our exciting colour conversations. Emerson College is a Covid-safe environment. To maintain social distancing the maximum number of people allowed in the studio is 4 plus myself. Please bring warm clothes & your own drinks and packed lunch.
