Previous students rave about Scott’s commitment to creating a “safe place & affirming community,” with “lots of creative, expressive energy.”
Making art on a wood surface is a great way to jump into a visual conversation that’s already underway!
Wood grain infers kinetic flow and traces shapes, both obvious and implied. Textures vary across the surface, drawing out different responses from our paints, inks, graphites, and other art media. We’ll let the grain inform and inspire our creative responses, seeing where it leads us and what discoveries we can make along the way.
This class is appropriate for beginners, and will also be relevant to experienced artists that want to exercise their "beginner mind". Ages 14+
What will class time be like? Will I need to work outside of class?
The instructor will begin each class with a few words about our direction for the day, and then we'll dive right into hands-on art-making. Our class will be small enough to allow for individual coaching. Students will not be required to work outside of class but are certainly welcome to do so.
What can I expect to create?
Most participants can expect to create one finished painting and 4 to 6 experimental surfaces.
What should I bring to class?
All necessary materials will be provided; however, students are invited to bring their own paint kit, an abandoned painting, etc.
