This workshop will focus on developing abilities to create powerful paintings.  Students will paint from a dramatic set-up with a live model.  The instructor will work with each student and discuss how to organize shapes, light and color to create paintings that have strong focal points.  Emphasis will be placed on teaching students how to interpret what is in front of them to create clear effective works. Lectures will include examples of successful compositional work.  This class is for any artist looking to improve their painting and compositional skills.
