Shifting Gears, Changing Drivers: Ways to refocus your painting process and create better paintings

Old Forge Workshop 
July 25 – 27, 2011 from 10 am – 4 pm
Instructor: Martha Deming, TWSA

This workshop will help you shift the driving force behind your work  from subject matter to design through an easy process of abstraction which will allow you to focus more attention on design and free you from the distraction of realistic subject matter. Ideas tried here can later be applied to subject matter paintings resulting in better composition, the heart of any good work.
Design elements and principles will be addressed along with consideration of how value, hue, intensity and temperature of color can impact design.

Open to all levels and painting mediums.
