Discover specific art techniques that you can ‘take away’ from some of your favorite artists and apply to your own work. This one and a half hour presentation will showcase a process that the artist incorporates in his daily art practice. Instruction will be through a combination of lecture and demonstration by the artists.
Our Technique Takeaways are presented live via Zoom. Participants will have the opportunity to interact with the instructor via the Zoom chat box and will have access to the recorded session for thirty days. You will receive a Zoom meeting link and passcode the day before the talk. To take part, you will need a camera enabled computer OR an IPad/smart tablet OR a smart phone (android or IOS) and a strong internet connection.
Edges are one of the most powerful elements in a painter’s repertoire and one of the least understood.
More than just a place where shapes meet, edges serve many purposes from moving the viewer’s eye to clarifying the artist’s focus and intention. Whether they are crisp or lost, subtle or flashy, edges say a lot about the artist and about the subject being depicted.
Join Ingrid Christensen for a 1 1/2 hour demonstration of the variety of edges and their functions. The demo will be in oil but the concepts are applicable to all 2-D media.
You’ll have an opportunity to ask questions during and after the demonstration.
