We first met Trung Pham, SJ, during his artist residency at the Guild in early 2016. We welcomed him as faculty in 2018 and fell in love with his warmth, generosity, and playful sense of humor. We are so grateful that Trung is returning to teach this summer!
Trung writes, “Every one of us has been touched or deeply impacted by tragedy. Perhaps the appropriate response to those traumatic experiences is not focusing on the why or what behind the trauma, but the how. How do we transcend our adversity, tragedy and trauma? How do we push forward with our lives after a life-altering trauma? I believe art is a beautiful vehicle that allows healing and transformation to take place. This class will open a space for one to keep in touch deeply with oneself and find meaning through painting.”
Participants will learn how to paint with acrylic and explore a variety of techniques such as mixing, glazing, layering, collaging.
All experience levels welcome, including beginners. Ages 18+
Yes, participants in this class must spend time outside of class in order to complete their projects.
What can I expect to create?
Participants can expect to create three acrylic paintings over the course of the week.
