The Alchemy of Oil Painting

3 Day Workshop, March 2 - 4 2018

Join David Heskin and Aloria Weaver for 3 days of training in the Theory and Practice of oil painting at Praxis Arts in Seattle.

As always, we will be delving deeply into the properties and working characteristics of oil paint and oil painting mediums.

This is not a completion-based class. We will be working on multiple small studies and painting exercises throughout the course, and each student will ultimately determine the level of completion that they will achieve in 3 days, particularly by making use of the open studio sessions every evening.

Through dedicated daily practice, the processes of direct and indirect painting techniques will be explored from start to finish, adjusting the formulas of our mediums to suit each approach. By de-mystifying traditional materials and mediums, a connection is made to the elemental sources from which oil painting supplies are sourced.

The classroom curriculum is tuned to logical and practical solutions in the theory and practice of oil painting, including the permanence and stability of our artwork, as well as studio safety and materials toxicity.

Practicing artists tend to gain the most out of our intensives, but the class is open to all levels. Wherever our students are on their art path, they will be able to use the hands-on knowledge in this course to exponentiate their skills to new levels of understanding and comfort with the complex array of artist's materials that are available.

Meditation with Moksha

Sunday

Join us for a short discussion and two 20 minute meditations, followed by tea and socializing! This is a gathering for anyone of any experience level. I'm available to teach you the how and why of meditation but think of this as less a class and more a reason to come together for a good cause.

These meditations are free to attend. Please bring a cushion to sit on and dress warm as the temperature can fluctuate.
