From time to time, all painters need to reinvigorate their creativity when our images become stale and rote. One way to do so is to look freshly by breaking down what we see into its more basic, abstract elements: value, line, composition, and color. The still life is an ideal subject to present seminal exercises designed to develop our creativity. Students will learn to reopen the doors to authenticity and grow as an artist. Be prepared to be challenged artistically, develop insights, and have fun. Open to all painters.

Each session will include a presentation/demonstration, followed by a series of painting exercises and instructional review of student work. A materials list will be supplied at registration. Philip will be painting in oil color.

Philip Frey is a celebrated career artist and instructor with a recently published book, Philip Frey: Here and Now, by Daniel Kany and Carl Little.
