This workshop will focus on the idea that painting can be fun and experimental. Too often we prevent ourselves from letting loose because we think we need to follow a strict formula, or that we must end up with a finished painting that fits our preconceived idea of “perfection”.
“I like to think of a painting session as messing around with ten bucks worth of materials. As a result, I can take creative risks, try new ideas or new palettes, and learn something during the session. I might even get a killer painting out of it. But if not, I’ve invested ten bucks and had fun.”
Through exercises and demonstrations, Perry will show his approach to tackling design fundamentals and processes, and participants will be encouraged to break out of their old routines and “out of the box.” Bring your sense of fun and adventure. Perry will be painting with acrylics. Oil painters are welcome, but some of the processes may not be completely transferable.
