This three-day Zoom workshop will explore the inner connections between music and our subconscious need for self-expression in our own art/painting. We’ll be studying a wide variety of music genres and the types of mark making one can associate with them as part of this journey. In conjunction with these marks, we will also be utilizing and incorporating the various painting principles (drawing/design/shapes/lines, color, value and edges) to generate expressive paintings regardless of the source or references. Traditional subtractive mediums will be explored depending on an individual’s interest and area of expertise (oil, acrylic, watercolor, gouache or other).
