Fearless Painters - Seeing, Simplifying & Expressing: Fairhope, AL


  • Eastern Shore Art Center 401 Oak Avenue Fairhope, AL, 36532 United States (map)

Join professional artist Cat Pope for an in-depth journey into fearless oil painting. Daily instructor demos followed by one-on-one instruction will be the heartbeat of this course, as students will develop and refine their own visual language through class exercises and experiments with a variety of tools. A fusion of Alla Prima and alternative layering techniques will be demonstrated in each session, as we explore compelling mark-making and its importance in creating imagery with intentional brushwork and styling. Special emphasis will be placed on expressions through color and “painting loose,” both signature elements in Cat’s painting style. This workshop is open to all levels of artists, but previous oil painting experience is strongly recommended.
