This course introduces four contemporary artists and explores their approaches and artwork. Along with looking at the work of these daring young artists, this workshop will focus on the role of colour: bold colour, subtle colour, no colour, minimal colour. Colour theory and colour mixing is ever present in all we do. This workshop includes several exercises that are designed to encourage you to express your feelings through colour, while learning core art theory.
Each chapter “launch” includes 2 videos:
- Meet the artist – explore and analyze the work of a contemporary artist, and
- A hands-on lesson and exercise
The “Meet the artist” video is designed to inspire you, and the “lesson and exercise” video encourages you to head into your studio to practice. These components will “launch” and be available to you a few days before the studio session giving you time to watch, listen, read, research, and practice in preparation for the studio session.
The studio session will be shared via ZOOM:
There will be a shared studio session for each chapter. This is your opportunity to work together while apart. It is a time for talking, sharing the creative experience, group critique, and painting. To facilitate sharing of your artwork, you will have access to a “chat room” on the course website where you will be able to upload your work, ready for sharing during the studio session.
Each participant is encouraged to experiment and be expressive, while finding and following their own path and growing in their own personal direction. No two students will produce the same painting. After completing this workshop, you will appreciate the paints that you already have and you will be equipped with techniques and a set of tools that will help you move forward, especially when working in your home studio
This program will be run from Grethe Jensen’s website. Those who register for the workshop will have a login ID which will give them access to all the course material.
Overall, the course is suitable for beginning artists with some painting experience and intermediate level artists who are seeking new approaches in their art.
