Painting Inside Out


Working with longtime painter and art instructor Judy Mayer-Grieve, this four-week program will focus on the art of intuitive abstract painting. During the program, Mayer-Grieve will introduce students to the techniques and strategies of an “inside out" approach to painting. Rather than the classical approach of “outside in" training—which uses replication and interpretation—this course will instead focus on participants creating paintings rooted in intuition and emotion. Tools such as brushes, sponges, spatulas and other everyday materials will be also be used to encourage students to try new ways of painting and a process-based approach. Throughout the program, students will gain confidence in their artistic abilities and methods for generating new and unexpected results. No previous experience necessary; suitable for beginner and accomplished painters alike.
