Building Grounds: the fundamentals of oil painting – D0611

Date: Jul 11 – 15, 2016

Skill Level(s): II i

Instructor(s): Kimberly Brooks

Concept:

Setting your artistic exploration free starts with understanding the architecture that makes up the grounds of a painting, whether you are working figuratively, representationally or abstractly. In this workshop, students with basic oil painting experience are exposed to new approaches for composing, including practical techniques, building different types of grounds, color mixing, how to layer and deconstruct, and when to employ tightness versus looseness. Develop techniques for keeping your art as fresh as possible while simultaneously building the scaffolding to create a cohesive body of work through this engaging exploration of painting.

Media & Techniques:

With a strong emphasis on safe studio practices, this class teaches techniques for oil painting used by Rembrandt and Velasquez. We learn to minimize our exposure to toxic chemicals, while at the same time work with traditional painting methods.

Activities:

We explore various materials, build our skills in several painting techniques, and develop many paintings from beginning to end throughout the week. We learn through technical instruction, individual feedback and guided studio time.

Faculty:

Kimberly Brooks is a contemporary painter who blends figuration and abstraction to explore a variety of subjects dealing with memory, history and identity. She exhibits nationally, and her work has been showcased in numerous publications and exhibitions including the Whitney Museum, MOMA and California Institute of the Arts.
