Abstraction from nature in Victor Idaho July 11-14

  • Scott Christensen studio victor, ID United States (map)

4 day class $575 (Full with wait list)

Scott Christensen has graciously offered to host this workshop in his studio in Victor, Idaho. He has the Teton’s in his back yard, horses, barns, hay bales, trees and also rivers. There is so much in the way of natural inspiration that it’s just overwhelming.

Want to push yourself creatively? The best way to grow as an artist is to extend your boundaries and explore new territory. This 4 day class is designed to reframe the way you see and retool the way you think about painting. We focus on and isolate the components of creating that are important to you: design, interpretation, content, concept, color, abstraction, materials and way more. The lessons you learn from this class will broaden and expand your existing way of working and, perhaps, start you off on a whole new path. We will be working in gouache and oil (preferred) or the medium of your choice.

Two requirements for this class are that you need to have at least 2 to 4 years experience as a painter, realist or abstract, or have taken one of my classes before. A basic understanding of painting (color/paint handling) is needed for this class.

This is an intensive class on how to think about what you are doing, why your are doing it and what you have to say. We will be gathering our reference in the form of studies the first two days. Each night we will have discussions and small thought assignments to prepare for the next day. We will be starting out with gouache studies (even if you’ve never worked with it before) and finish larger works with your medium of choice.
